SuperNova Connect & Learn Webinar - For education professionals supporting students with low vision (18th Oct 21)

30 minutes
Audience: Education
Products: All

A highly recommended webinar for educators of students with low vision and visual impairments.
In this short webinar, Dave Salisbury from Dolphin Computer Access demonstrates the latest developments in SuperNova Connect & Learn. These help students with visual impairments to work and learn more independently in class.
SuperNova Connect & Learn assistive technology works to magnify class handouts on screen, scan and read paper documents with speech settings, magnify classroom whiteboards and more.
The latest developments mean students with visual impairments can also scan, read and annotate printed documents. This makes it easier for students with visual impairments to complete forms and class handouts independently.
