Hardware and Accessories
Hello, I am new to this forum and trying to find products to help my wife and daughter with low vision. There are many iPad "magnifier" apps out there. VisionAssist and Mag. Light Pro seem most helpful so far. To be really useful, it would be great to have some sort of stand or mount for the iPad with a built in light to illuminate the document. Ideally, the iPad would sit in this stand on a desk/table so hands can be free to magnify the image and move the document under neath. Surely this exists, but I can't seem to find it. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thank you!
A product I heard about
IPad Stands reviewed
This thread is a bit old, but I thought I'd add to it for reference, since I'm sure others have the same need (a stand for the iPad). ATMac linked to this article/video a few weeks ago:
Stand for iPad
A new stand is now available that holds the iPad, iPad Mini or iPhone. Called ScanJig Pro it provides easy tactile positioning of both smart devices and documents for correct focus, alignment and field of view. The product design also helps avoid shadows and optimizes ambient light to get great images. This can help you work with the magnifier app. See www.scanjig.com for more information.
