ezRead, iPad, Kindle
With Black Friday upon us, these 3 gift options can make reading easier for aging parents with low vision problems. Do check out the specific attributes of each.
I’ve read somewhere–you’ll no doubt check– that the iPad works better than the Kindle in certain light (natural vs. artificial) and vice versa.
One of my senior advisors with macular degeneration says the Kindle is “too gray” so doesn’t have the clarity for her that the iPad has…perhaps it’s the light she’s reading in. Marti Weston follows her 87-year-old father’s challenges and successes-after buying him an iPad–on her blog As Our Parents Age. (Click rectangle below for newest iPad version.)
That said, the ezRead is a different option and a different technology. It magnifies reading material onto a TV screen. Check out the Amazon reviews.
Whether you can find these at extraordinarily inexpensive prices on Black Friday or not, they are worth checking out. Happy Shopping!
New: “Of Current Interest”(right sidebar). Links to timely information and research from top universities about cancer, dementia, Parkinson’s, plus some fun stuff–to help parents age well.
