Welcome to our Pacific Vision New Zealand newsletter.
The Assistive Technology continues to evolve at an astounding rate designing and creating, very smart, life-changing devices. 
We put in a lot of effort to keep up to date with new available products and news, and take pride in being able to bring these to our clients as soon as they are released.

We are now happy to announce new additions to our product range.

Introducing OmniReader

An exciting new scanning and reading device
The omniReader is a lightweight, portable scanning and reading solution that makes printed text accessible for people who are blind or have low vision.

Simply press a button and the omniReader® reads printed text aloud or you can follow along with the magnified text in high-contrast colours on the built-in screen. You can also use the screen to instantly magnify objects to see them more clearly. Thanks to its lightweight design, built-in handle, and long battery life, you can pick it up and use it wherever you want – at home, at the office, and even on-the-go.


Transformer HD

Full HD - WiFi - OCR
Computer Compatible Electronic Magnifier

Connects to iPad wirelessly!


The Transformer HD is a break-through new low vision product.
It is a high performance portable video magnifier (CCTV), featuring a Sony ® Full HD 1080p 3-in-1 camera, Wi-Fi capability, and optional Full Page Text-to-Speech (OCR). The Transformer HD Wi-Fi also has a built in 2-hour battery, so students with low vision do not have to plug it in during class (a 2nd 2-hour battery and 2nd charger are also included) – students are not anchored to a wall with a long power cord, and they are not fighting with messy “spaghetti” wires. The battery on the new Transformer HD Wi-Fi is totally independent from the users laptop.

The Transformer HD Wi-Fi low vision aid, will also allow users with vision loss to now easily connect to Android tablets, PCs and MacBooks wirelessly.
