How can a student with low vision read regular-print books in the library?
There are multiple ways individuals with low vision can access printed text within a library setting. Some libraries provide a special closed-circuit television (CCTV) that can magnify the text of any document. If the library provides a scanner with optical character recognition, along with screen-reading software and a voice synthesizer on a computer, text can be scanned electronically and then read aloud to the blind patron. The content of some printed materials may also be available as an audio recording.
