Better Vision app magnifies and reads text out loud

February 2013

To support visually impaired and dyslexic people in their efforts to read, the ‘Better Vision’ app has been developed: a functional and handy all-in-one app that magnifies text and reads English, German, Spanish or Dutch text out loud on iPhones, iPads (mini) and Android devices. The app can also light up text and increase contrast; useful for reading the paper, a menu, street names, and bus numbers or for recognising items in the supermarket. The ‘Better Vision’ app can also be used to help those who need reading glasses.

App replaces reading support aids

Due to functions such as magnifying, reading out loud, lighting up and enhancing contrast, the app can replace electronic or optically magnifying aids such as screen, telescope or handheld magnifiers and magnifying glasses. Aids that, in many countries, represent a purchase price of between 25 and 1200 euros (depending on the circumstances per country).

Better Vision App

The app can be purchased for € 5,45 euro /$ 5,99 and is suitable for iOS 5+ (specifically for iPad 3 and iPhone 4 and newer models). The app is also suitable for Android 2.2 (phones and tablets) and newer versions. The functionalities described above only work if the device has a camera function.
