Marketing Text Two prototypes (portable and stationary) of the score reading devices for the low vision users, that consist of the monitors with pedals and software to manage magnification of the scores while playing music instruments. Those sets of devices are very unique because they address an inconvenience that hinders low vision professional musicians to carry out their job as efficiently as musicians without this handicap do.
This system solution gives a visually impaired user a fantastic possibility to see the exact amount of scores, which suits the degree of sight reduction. With the help of the footswitch the visually impaired musician can scroll the exactly wanted portion of scores. It means that you can much easier than before just push the next portion of music.
Rehearsing and performing conditions become so much easier with the help of this solution. You can now have the right magnification. You can get the right amount of scores at the time which you want. And you can very easily operate it by the help of the footswitch. You can also copy all the scores which you are going to perform in to the same presentational document. That means that you have a continuous document, which covers the whole concert or rehearsing session in front of you.
