Quick Look Zoom

  1. 1. QuickLook Zoom The Ultimate Portable Magnifier Lealani Aflague ED443 Dr.Cyrus
  2. 2. How does it look?
  3. 3. What does it do? <ul><li>The QuickLook Zoom is a digital magnifying device that can make images much bigger and easier for everyone to see. There are three view settings – full color, black/white, and negative – which give the user the option of seeing things the way they want. It also gives you the option of making the image darker or brighter. It’s a very user friendly device, and anyone can use it. However, the main audience for this device is those who are visually impaired. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Advantages <ul><li>It makes things so much bigger for easier reading or writing. </li></ul><ul><li>It gives you 3 options of view – full color, black/white, or negative. </li></ul><ul><li>You don’t spend too much on batteries because of the built in rechargeable battery (I think a device like this would use up battery life fast). </li></ul><ul><li>You can see finer details of the page and images. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s suitable for both right- and left-handed individuals. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Disadvantages <ul><li>You cannot see the whole page/section of what you’re reading – can only see about 1 or 2 lines depending on font and spacing. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: difficulty working a Sudoku puzzle </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It’s pretty heavy for a “portable” device </li></ul><ul><li>There is no back-up energy source; so if the battery dies while using it at a restaurant or supermarket, you can’t use it. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s not as slim or small as a magnifying sheet </li></ul><ul><li>It’s VERY expensive: $735.00 </li></ul>
  6. 6. Similar devices Handheld reading magnifiers: about $3.99 Bookmarks magnifiers: around $2.50 Full sheet magnifiers: about $3.00
  7. 7. Personal Thoughts <ul><li>I think this device is so much fun to play with. My fiancé and I had fun with it. It is a great device for people who have trouble seeing small print; not just those who fall under Visually Impaired under IDEA. I actually think of my dad when I see this device because there was this one time when he didn’t even know what he ordered at a restaurant because he forgot his glasses and was too embarrassed to ask any of what was on the menu. </li></ul>
  8. 8. More Thoughts <ul><li>So this device can be really helpful for so many people, however it does have it’s flaws. My favored alternative for this very expensive and bulky device is the magnifying sheets/squares that you can find at bookstores. Those are A LOT less expensive and much slimmer. There are also many other devices that are similar to this one, but I did think this one was a lot of fun. I do want to keep in mind, however, that for some people this isn’t a toy; it’s their way of attaining the independence that we have. </li></ul>
