1. MagniLink TAB Tablet Solution i7 Processor <New Video>
Top 10 Low Vision Products for Schools and Educators - 2021 Education Technology Top Choices

MagniLink TAB is a top product because it is a portable tool that incorporates a very high-quality side camera. Having the camera ‘on the side’ is key, especially for students, because the side camera is independent of the viewing monitor tablet, not within the viewing monitor tablet. This allows the student to maintain a consistent view of the tablet monitor without having to continually change the view of the tablet monitor to use the tablet camera. Both the tablet monitor and the side camera are separate from each other, allowing the Student to easily view near and distant objects, without having to continually adjust the tablet monitor. The MagniLink TAB includes a fully functioning Microsoft Surface Pro 12.3” tablet, offering users every flexibility and benefit of modern-day PC computing. The MagniLink TAB collapses down for easy transporting between classes and is a complete mobile solution, perfect for both students and business professionals. The MagniLink TAB provides the ability to read any printed material with ease allowing users to change the size, contrast, use the built-in fast text-to-speech (TTS), pinch, zoom, write with a stylus, etc. The MagniLink TAB has a great touch and key command ‘action’, it is speedy to work with and keeps up with the expectations and demands of today’s sophisticated users.  <Click Here To Learn More About MagniLink TAB>
