Infrastructure for the visually impaired

In the Information room there are two devices specifically designed to meet the needs of users with low vision:

  • Screen reader: With this device, it is possible to enlarge books, magazines, and other physical documents on a screen to read them. Magnification, brightness and contrast can be adjusted.
  • PC with magnification software: One of our public PC stations is equipped with the software "ZoomText" which increases the content of the screen and reads it. Apart from that, the offer on this PC is the same as the one on the other stations.
