IPEVO Products in Action for Visually-Impaired Students

Using IPEVO Ziggi-HD Plus Document Camera and Presenter software to watch live video right on the laptop at the desk

Teachers, are you looking for smart solutions for the visually-impaired students in your class? Several IPEVO products can help students feel empowered by presenting teaching material better. And as you’ll see with the educators below, IPEVO products are already making a real difference for VI students.
For example, the VZ-1 Dual-Mode document camera can help present material on a laptop or monitor using either USB or VGA, depending on the existing tech in your classroom:


The iZiggi-HD Wireless Document Camera is our wireless doc cam and can go anywhere students go. From science class to art class and everywhere in between, iZiggi streams real-time video of teaching material to PC or Mac as well as iPad and Android tablets. Dedicated tablets are a great accessory for VI students, who can pinch-zoom the image for a closer look. And with our free Whiteboard App for tablets, a voice-over function provides an valuable audio component to accompany the images.


Also consider IPEVO’s IW2 Wireless Interactive Whiteboard System which provides a large, interactive image to engage VI students. All you need is a projector and a flat surface (usually the whiteboard will do). IW2 and your students’ curiosity will handle the rest as students directly control and explore material at the board.


And at the end of the day, in addition to providing better and larger views of material, there’s the simple issue of cost. As Tek-Ninja outlines in this helpful comparison article, so-called dedicated VI products can cost many hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Compare that to affordable IPEVO products doing many of the same things (or better), and the choice is easy for schools with tight budgets.
Want to learn more? Here’s a step-by-step “How To” guide for setting up IPEVO products for visually-impaired students. And here’s a handy video covering solutions for VI learners.

You are probably here because you just got an IW2 Wireless Interactive Whiteboard System on your hands. And after unboxing it, you’ve spent like almost half an hour trying to get it calibrated, yet no matter how hard you tried, you can’t get it right! Been there, done that, that’s why we’re here with you.
The crucial point to a successful calibration is finding the ideal distance to place your Sensor Cam, and this isn’t easy as the distance differs for different screen sizes. Having said that, finding the ideal distance can be a whole lot easier if you follow the guide below.

What you will need:

1. The IW2 Sensor Cam distance Finder (you have to print it yourself)
2. A pair of scissors
3. Glue

IW2 Sensor Cam distance Finder

With this little tool, it will make your life easier in determining where to place your Sensor Cam. First things first, go ahead and download the Finder that we prepared for you.
The IW2 Sensor Cam distance Finder (letter-sized)
Do note that though the template is in letter-sized, you can also print it using an A4 paper. When printing, make sure it’s at 100% with no scaling. And please do NOT check the option “Fit to page” or any other setting that might change the size of the original template for printing.

Making the Finder

Making the Finder is pretty straightforward, and you may even turn it into a simple DIY session with your students. You’ll need to cut along the solid lines, fold along the dotted lines, then glue them together to form a rectangle. There are two templates available — one for glasses and the other for bare eye. Please choose the right template to use.

howto_02

Remember to choose the right template

Finding the Ideal Distance

After you’re done making the Finder, follow the simple instructions printed on the right hand side of the template to find the ideal distance for placing your Sensor Cam.

howto_07

Remember to place the Finder against your eye or glasses completely when using

See through the Finder and move forward or backward until the opening of the Finder fits perfectly with the screen. And STOP IT right there! You’ve found the ideal distance to place your Sensor Cam! And as soon as you place your Sensor Cam at that ideal distance, you should have no problem with the calibration process that follows.
