Big or small screen – size matters!
Your visual field determines the size of the screen. Visually impaired people with macular degeneration predominantly have a wide visual field and should choose a large 32” or 43” screen. People with a narrow visual field choose a smaller screen. Reading with the right screen is more comfortable and faster because you don’t have to move the reading table much. You have more of an overview and are less tired if you can see a full column width on the screen.
The Vocatex offers screens with a diagonal of 22” (56 cm), 27” (68 cm), 32” (82 cm) and even 43” (109 cm). KOBA Vision is the only manufacturer with this unique range of screens. We aim to utilise all your remaining vision with our choice of screens.
For optimum ergonomics, the screens can be tilted or adjusted in height. A correct seating position is necessary for pleasant reading.
Readout – The Vocatex talks
The Vocatex is a readout magnifier. This combination of screen magnifier and readout device makes reading pleasant and less tiring. With the Vocatex you select the text on the screen. Reading out starts immediately. A red rectangle around the word follows the text. In this way you know where you are and you maintain the overview on the page. While the Vocatex reads out you see the words enlarged on the screen.
Intelligent readout function
Thanks to the intelligent readout function, Vocatex reads entire pages without irritating pauses and this simply by moving the reading table and the text. When moving the reading table the new text is incorporated and the Vocatex just continues reading.
The Vocatex also reads whole A4 pages. By setting the magnification to extra small, the whole page is read. You no longer need to move the reading table. Ideal to read simple pages.
