Enhanced Vision’s Wearable Jordy Device Helps Users with Low-Vision

August 9, 2017 – Enhanced Vision, a developer of low-vision assistive technology, announced Jordy, a new wearable device to help people with low vision read, write and participate fully in their daily activities. Weighing 8 oz., Jordy has five levels of brightness controls, a built-in battery with a four or eight-hour lifespan, and allows the user to adjust magnification as necessary. The device can also connect to a monitor with many accessibility features, including an intuitive tactile interface and different contrast and viewing modes. One user of Jordy, Mr. Ed Parker, said, “it not only helps me do the things I need to do like read my mail and pay my bills, it also allows me to see my grandkids, watch TV, play cards and enjoy so many other things I thought were lost to me. It is simply amazing.”
