Upcoming: Sight Village, Birmingham Posted on 22nd May 2015 Every year, a large number of visitors come to the Sight Village exhibitions to find out more about the latest technology, equipment and support services available to people who are blind or partially-sighted. If you or a family member have a visual impairment it could be of great help to visit the show. Also welcome are a wide range of professionals that support people with visual impairments and businesses looking to better meet the needs of their employees and customers. Sight Village in Birmingham, the largest Sight Village gathering of the year, is fast approaching. The 2015 exhibition will be taking place Tuesday 14th July and Wednesday 15th July – doors open at 10am and close at 3pm, and as with previous years it will be taking place at New Bingley Hall. Entry as always is free. Once again Sight and Sound Technology are very proud to be headline sponsors of the event, alongside Barclays Bank. And this year we have an exclusive and exciting new product to show you – which will be publicly displayed for the first time at Sight Village Birmingham – The Topaz PHD. The lightweight TOPAZ® PHD offers the comfort and productivity features of a desktop video magnifier but folds away like a laptop. With auto-focus, a wide magnification range, intuitive controls, five default and 27 customisable high-contrast colour modes, and adjustable reading lines and masks, the new TOPAZ PHD offers the freedom to independently read and view the details that matter in the home, office, classroom, or on the go. Come and have a play with the Topaz PHD and a variety of other software and hardware designed specifically for the blind and visually impaired, only at the Sight and Sound stand.
