SuperNova Connect & Learn for Vision Impaired Students


SuperNova Connect & Learn. The classroom-ready study package.


Windows laptop, tablet, magnifier & portable video magnifier – all in one package

SuperNova Connect & Learn is designed for low vision students who need a portable video magnifier and a Windows laptop. With Connect & Learn there's no compromise, it's all these devices in one lighweight solution:

  One Device – a world of learning

With SuperNova Connect & Learn, students with low vision can magnify class handouts in real time during lessons. It enables users to zoom in for detail and customise the font and background colours for the best contrast. Use one finger tap to save a picture, to add to your document and aid revision later in the day. SuperNova scans for text and reads it aloud with just one tap which means it's more comfortable for tired eyes. With Connect & Learn, students can also send text to Word documents and complete online research with magnification and speech. Completed assignment can be emailed to the teacher easily.

This means schools or colleges save money and so can save funds for other essentials or use it to support more students with visual impairments.

The SuperNova Connect & Learn package can also connect to external monitors, keyboard, mouse, printer and other office equipment. SuperNova Connect & Learn is powered by Windows 10, so choosing this device provides opportunities for students to build skills that take them beyond education and into future employment. 


3 Reasons students love SuperNova Connect & Learn

1. Maintain independence without standing out

Connect & Learn features a mainstream Microsoft Surface Pro. This device is commonly used and so users are able to maintain their privacy and discretion regarding any visual impairments. Often specialist hardware for use by people with visual impairments can be bulky or clunky - this is not the case with the Connect & Learn package.

2. Portable and lightweight – a single package that replaces five common devices

SuperNova Connect & Learn includes all the features and power of a video magnifier, laptop, tablet and book reader in one flexible package. This means there is less to carry between classes and while travelling to and from school. A sturdy backpack is included which can be used to carry your device and other school equipment. 

3. More than learning – play games, watch videos and go online

Take SuperNova Connect & Learn home and once homework is completed, there’s a world of reading, web browsing and gaming at your fingertips!
