What Are Adaptive Devices for People With Visual Impairments?

When someone with a visual impairment uses adaptive devices, they need a product that they can find using their senses. Adaptive communication devices designed for people with visual impairments have features such as high-contrast, flashing lights or unique textures so the user can locate and use them. The user can then take advantage of the device’s main purpose, such as switch activation, communication or having fun.

How Do Devices for Visual Impairments Help Individuals Use Them?

Adapted devices for people with visual impairments can activate one of these senses for easier use:

  • Sight: People with low vision may be able to use an adaptive device if it has high enough contrast or lighting for them to see it. These products use high-contrast colors or bright lights to make it easier for someone with low vision to see them.
  • Touch: A distinct texture can help someone with a visual impairment tell a device apart from other objects. Some devices with tactile features vibrate to let the user know when they activate it.
  • Sound: Other adaptive devices rely on sound to communicate with the user. They can help someone learn how to locate objects using their hearing or make a sound when the user activates them.
