Assistive Technology

What is Assistive Technology?

Assistive Technology is any item that aids in reading printed or handwritten materials. It also includes specific machines that enable blind and visually impaired people to listen to audio books.

At Croydon Vision’s Tech Hub we have everything from handy pocket electronic magnifiers, to larger desktop versions. We also have specific machines that convert text to speech and read printed materials aloud.

We stock specific devices that read content from USB sticks and audio books from Daisy Disks.


Mobility is also made easier thanks to our GPS devices, which are specifically designed for visually impaired people.
