Zoomax Snow 12 is a portable electronic video magnifier that delivers visual independence for people with low vision. With Snow 12, you can more easily read, write, look at objects or even perform full-page content scanning with OCR text-to-speech. With standard features like a 12″ full-HD display, magnification up to 19x, and a simple accessible interface, Snow 12 is perfect for all situations.
The Zoomax Snow 12 is designed to make life easier. There is an analog stick to allow you to pan around a document without needing to move your reading material so much. The foldable stand lifts Snow 12 off the table for times when you'd prefer to place reading materials or objects like a medicine bottle or small item underneath. The stand also makes it much easier to see what you're writing.
Detachable & Foldable For Outdoor Use
Snow 12 can be used with or without the foldable stand.
When used outside of the foldable stand, Snow 12 functions like most other handheld electronic video magnifiers. Being folded shut, Snow 12 is thinner than a notebook computer.
A carrying case big enough to hold the Snow 12 and foldable stand together, and a sleeve case bag to hold just the Snow 12 are included for times when you need to travel.
Comfortable Writing Space
Trying to hold the magnifier while signing a check? Make things easier with Snow 12. When used with the foldable stand, Snow 12 is elevated off the table leaving you ample room to write, just like what you find with larger desktop magnification systems. Resume your writing, doodling, signing and creating today!
OCR And Text-To-Speech
With the latest OCR technology, Snow 12 can recognize any of 20+ different languages and convert printed words into speech. Changing the reading speed can be done on the fly. You can even choose between male and female voices. Documents can be saved on Snow 12 for future reading and even exported to a Windows® PC.
Button or Touch Screen Control with Voice Prompts
When you need to change settings in Snow 12, you can browse through the menu of choices by tapping the on-screen button you want, or by stepping through them with physical buttons on Snow 12. Best of all, Snow 12 speaks to you as you move over on-screen buttons or select them. The ability to use buttons to control and configure Snow 12 is ideal even for the most severely visually impaired. The verbal feedback is helpful too, especially when using Snow 12 for the first time.
For Students & Everyone: Reading Accessible Instructional Materials
Providing accessible curriculum materials to students with visual impairments is important. Snow 12 makes it easy, too.
When connected to a Windows® PC, Snow 12 appears as an external storage device. You can copy over books and other documents in JPG, PDF, RTF, and TXT formats to the memory storage of Snow 12. Documents in JPG and PDF become available immediately for magnified reading. You can also open the documents in all 4 formats within the text-to-speech mode and have words spoken out loud.
A standard headphone port lets you listen to spoken books and documents without disturbing others.
