Empowering students to reach their full potential

The Optron


The Optron device allows visually impaired students to read information presented by the teacher on the classroom whiteboard while they are sitting at their desks. With the aid of the Optron, students can better comprehend lessons through the use of charts, diagrams, and artwork. In addition, very small objects such as insects, stamps, and coins can be enlarged for viewing.
