We Thought of Almost Everything

We designed Snow 12 to make life easier. We added an analog stick to allow you to pan around a document without needing to move your reading material so much. The foldable stand lifts Snow 12 off the table for times when you'd prefer to place reading materials or objects like a medicine bottle or small item underneath. The stand also makes it much easier to see what you're writing.

Detachable & Foldable

Snow 12 can be used with or without the foldable stand.

When used outside of the foldable stand,Snow 12 functions like most other handheld video magnifiers. Being folded shut, Snow 12 is thinner than a notebook computer.

A carrying case big enough to hold the Snow 12 and foldable stand together, and a sleeve case bag to hold just the Snow 12 are included for times when you need to travel.

Superior Image Quality

Looking at family photos or enjoying illustrations and other images in recipes and magazines can be enjoyed even more with Snow 12. Our advanced color rendition results in images that look better than ever. We also added contrast customization so that you can make fonts thinner or thicker on demand. If you like to read text in a high contrast mode such as white on black, you will love how sharp the contrast is with Snow 12.

Comfortable Writing Space

Trying to hold the magnifier while signing a check? Make things easier with Snow 12. When used with the foldable stand, Snow 12 is elevated off the table leaving you ample room to write, just like what you find with larger desktop magnification systems. Resume your writing, doodling, signing and creating today!

You can even choose between male and female voices. Documents can be saved on Snow 12 for future reading and even exported to a Windows® PC.

More Than Listening to Books

Button or Touch Screen Control with Voice Prompts

When you need to change settings in Snow 12, you can browse through the menu of choices by tapping the on-screen button you want, or by stepping through them with physical buttons on Snow 12. Best of all, Snow 12 speaks to you as you move over on-screen buttons or select them. The ability to use buttons to control and configure Snow 12 is ideal even for the most severely visually impaired. The verbal feedback is helpful too, especially when using Snow 12 for the first time.
