1. Save money with 4 devices in 1
Connect & Learn includes all the features and power of a video magnifier, laptop, tablet and book reader in one flexible package. So you won’t need to buy a specialist video magnifier AND a Windows laptop – saving funds for other essentials or to support more VI students.
2. Fully accessible - designed for sight loss
Connect & Learn has been designed by people with sight loss, for students with low vision. Magnification & speech (if you choose SuperNova Magnifier & Speech) is available at every step. Plus there’s weekday access to UK product support from our knowledgeable team.
3. Developing skills for higher education and employment
When your low vision learner moves on from school, their Windows 10 & Microsoft Office skills will equip them for higher education and future employment. Plus the Connect & Learn package offers connectivity to external monitors, keyboard, mouse, printer and other office peripherals. Choosing a device that is powered by Windows 10, is up skilling them for their future.
1. Be just like everyone else - Surface Pro
Unlike some specialist low vision magnifiers, Connect & Learn features a mainstream Microsoft Surface Pro. It is not specialist hardware designed for visual impairments, and it won’t make you stand out amongst your sighted peers. In fact, they might be jealous.
2. Portable and lightweight – 1 device instead of 4
Connect & Learn includes all the features and power of a video magnifier, laptop, tablet AND book reader in 1 flexible package. That’s less to carry between classes and while travelling to and from school. Plus it all fits neatly in the sturdy backpack that’s included.
3. More than learning – play games, watch videos and have fun
Take your Connect & Learn home with you and (once you’ve completed your homework!) there’s a world of reading, web browsing, games and videos at your fingertips.
