    Transformer HD now with a new design and connects to iPad wirelessly! (Also connects to PC, Mac & Android)

    How many times have you heard someone ask, “is it compatible with an iPad?”

    Now the answer is a resounding…yes!

    The new Transformer HD Wi-Fi is a total redesign…and a break-through new low vision product!

    It has all the functionality of the former version, plus so much more!

    The new Transformer HD now houses a built-in Wi-Fi.  This allows the new Transformer HD Wi-Fi to connect to an iPad, using no wires… that means…Wirelessly…!

    The benefits of this new wireless functionality are enormous!

    Remember… the new 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. Students are also NOT bleeding down any laptop batteries, because the battery on the new Transformer HD Wi-Fi is totally independent from the users laptop.

    Transformer HD Software Compatibility

    We are happy to announce that Transformer HD is now compatible with the latest versions of Supernova (16.06), Zoomtext (11.7) and Zoomtext 2018.   Additionally OCR capability has also been added when using these 3rd party add-ons.   For complete technical updates, question and answers, and how to update your Transformer HD, please click here to read the Transformer HD Tech Bulletin.
