Prodigi Duo Electronic Magnifier with 24″ LCD Screen


The groundbreaking, touch-controlled 2-in-1 Personal Vision Assistant has arrived!

Prodigi is the first Personal Vision Assistant that is both a desktop and handheld magnifier, plus so much more. HumanWare has reinvented the electronic magnifier to bring you a vision and reading system that is:

It’s simple

Prodigi has no confusing knobs and dials, and no clumsy X/Y table. Its Touch and TapTM controls are easy to learn and hard to forget. Just place your document and tap to zoom in and start reading with your preset magnification, enhanced contrast and reading mode. Prodigi uses the same touch controls for the desktop and portable tablet, so it’s simple to use, at home or away.

It’s intelligent

Prodigi’s Diamond Edge TextTM can be magnified infinitely without compromising image quality. See images in full color and Diamond Edge Text in enhanced contrast! Or enjoy effortless reading with Prodigi’s many reading modes and smooth flowing text that you can magnify, speed up, slow down or even go back, all without moving your page. And Prodigi can even read aloud if you prefer to sit back and listen!

It’s portable

The Prodigi Duo is the first HD all-digital magnifier that is both a desktop and a portable tablet. Simply detach the tablet and take it wherever you go… to the couch or bed, store or restaurant, ANYWHERE! Capture new materials, or take cherished photos or important documents with you.  Take the detached tablet to your meeting with your appointment with your financial advisor, doctor, attorney, etc. and be able to read and sign your documents.

It’s adaptable

Right out of the box, the Prodigi Duo’s built-in tutorial guides you through the optimal reading preferences for your unique vision needs. Whatever size, color, contrast, orientation, or speed, Prodigi adapts to you.

Best of all, your preferences follow you wherever you go.

Selected Testimonials

“I am just so happy with the Prodigi! I’ve shown it to other people here, and they can’t believe how sharp the text is to read with that Diamond Edge. And they are simply amazed when I put it into speech mode and it talks to me. I even put my iPad under it to magnify it, because the iPad’s magnification is limited. I am going to the Veterans Administration soon for an eye exam, and I will be taking my Prodigi Tablet to show them. I love my Prodigi.” – Don, Massachusetts

“Prodigi is such a blessing. I wouldn’t give it up. I have read 2 books in the first couple of weeks I had it, and these books are over 500 pages long. I always use the Diamond Edge Text mode to read and follow along with the speech function. The Diamond Edge Text is so crisp and clean on the screen, my eyes don’t get tired.” – Thomas, Texas

“Mother absolutely LOVES her Prodigi! It’s truly given her a new lease on life. She easily moves back and forth from read mode to live; reading newspaper obits, recipe cards, mail (although the machine doesn’t read cursive, so letters are out unless they’re printed), etc. Pictures are still a bit harder for her to see, but we’re working on collecting her some better pictures. There are simply no words that can truly express our gratitude for this wonderful machine. Giving mom back some of her independence has worked wonders in restoring a “purpose” for her life. I’ll sign off with a cute story. I awoke early the morning after we had set up the prodigi for mom, looking for mom. She was not in her bed. I didn’t find her in the bathroom. I was beginning to get concerned. Then I saw her in the corning of the living room, at the desk…on her prodigi. She was totally engrossed in reading!!! Basically, you’ve given my mom back her eyesight! Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.” -Mary, Texas


Diamond Edge Text

Prodigi outlines the letters of words in seconds, allowing it to maintain very sharp lines which are easier for you to see. We call this Diamond Edge Text. It allows you to magnify words to any size, without any degradation in the clarity of the letters, unlike other video magnifiers. No more dots for words. No more jagged or fuzzy edges. No more letters losing their shape the more you magnify. And because Prodigi does this, when you get tired, it knows the words of text, and can read aloud for you.

Full Page Capture

If you’ve used CCTVs before, you’ll notice that Prodigi has no X/Y tray to fumble around with back and forth, side to side. That is because Prodigi captures full pages in seconds. And if you want to move around in the document, you use your fingers to move around and magnify your page. Then press a single button to display the text for optimal reading comfort. That sure beats moving that big X/Y tray and getting lost! And since Prodigi captures the entire page, if you get tired and want to listen instead of read, Prodigi can read the text aloud to you, not just the small section you have magnified under the camera like some other systems.

Reading Modes

Prodigi adapts to you. However you want to read, it will give you what you want. Do you find it easier to read in a column like a teleprompter? No problem. You can tell Prodigi to do it that way with everything you want to read. Maybe the best reading style for you is a single line of scrolling words, like a marquee? This way with your limited field of vision, you can concentrate on one spot and read more, faster, with less fatigue. Prodigi can do it. Best of all, with a simple touch, you can stop, start, magnify and adjust the speed of the scrolling text to suit your unique needs.

Docking Station

The Prodigi Duo is two High Definition reading tools for the price of one. A desk version, and a portable version. How does it do that? With its unique Docking Station, you simply place the Prodigi Tablet into the Docking Station cradle, close the guides, and Voila, it is now your Desk Top Video Magnifier with a 20 or 24 inch screen! Need to go shopping? Take the Tablet out of the cradle and take it with you! It was charging itself when you it was in the Docking station, so you’re good to go! Want to read the newspaper at the local Coffee shop? Bring along your Prodigi Tablet and optional Reading Stand, and optimize your reading. And if you choose, plug in your headphones, capture a page, and listen.
