“I am fortunate to have been in possession of a Prodigi Duo for the past three weeks and I am now wondering how I managed before I had this amazing device!
The base sits easily on my desk space alongside my laptop and large monitor and it is here I use Prodigi to magnify paperwork and particularly numbers which I have progressively had problems with differentiating. I work with figures so this is for me quite incredible.
The short tuition one to one session with Tony Wu the Prodigi representative who came to my residence and unpacked and assembled the device was excellent. Tony was very clear and precise in his instruction and along with the User Guide and Quick reference sheet I was at once able to commence using Prodigi and find my way around with no hesitation at all.
Over the past three weeks I have explored the various modes that best work for me and am comfortable with using the machine base for the most part in Live Mode and easily magnifying as required for the respective documents.
The Prodigi tablet is what is most amazing, it is lightweight and portable and I am using it constantly around the house for all manner of little jobs, particularly in the kitchen to magnify instruction labels on jars, cans and packaging, read recipes, see the temperature controls on my oven and I even reach into the back of deep cupboards, capture a shot and am then able to see what I have there without having to physically take it all out!
The best of all is that I can sit in a cafe with a latte and read the newspaper and magazines rather than only barely able to check out the headlines and pretty pictures...too tempting not to be doing my accounting work at home!
Thank you Prodigi”
Being an avid crafter, I purchased a large needlepoint canvas to keep me occupied during the anticipated long hours at the hospital. I pulled it out, I had the yarn to finish it; however, my vision is no longer adequate to do such detailed work. I used every available magnifier I could find, with limited success. I then saw the SmartView. By using the SmartView I was able to complete the project and present it to my Son, Daughter-In-Law and Granddaughter on October 15, 2011 exactly 29 years after I started it!
I sing with a barbershop chorus and place all my music/songs on the Victor Reader Stream; it is very easy to move forward or backward when learning the music. Recordings are quiet, free of annoying 'scratchiness'. I am a radio guy from a way back, what a device!

What is so neat is I can go to my local library which has a public wireless network, and just use it to either download and read Bookshare titles, or search for internet radio stations.
It is really satisfying to see the growth in my clients’ independence as they realize what the Trekker Breeze enables them to do.
