What Do You Do When Your CCTV Is Too Old to Repair?

The following article is by Lauren Tappan:

I met with Sharon Giovanzo, Director of RLCB,  and John Sherwood, Technical Trainer, at the Raleigh Lions Club Building (RLCB). John showed me the Divinci and we got a chance to look at accessible features on his Ipad. I was not able to see how the Divinci interacts with his Ipad but I hope to do this at a later visit. I understand that the NC Assistive Technology also has a Divinci to demonstrate.


The Divinci is quite an impressive piece of AT Equipment. It appears that the Divinci can act as a CCTV, capturing texts and reading them to you. The camera also makes it available to see objects in the room. There is also a way to have the Divinci directly interact with your Ipad. This means that you will be able to read  the navigational toolbar and apps on the Ipad, which has been a problem for low-vision users in the past. I still have other equipment to evaluate before making a final decision, but when your CCTV is too old to repair, you have to do a lot of research to decide what is the next piece of AT equipment that you will need to buy.
