MCDL has several types of adaptive technology available to meet needs of our members:
CCTV is available in the Reference Department at the Medina Library to enlarge regular print materials onto a screen for easier viewing.
Microsoft Narrator is a program that is available on all public computers that will convert text to speech for the visually impaired.
Magnifier Kits may be checked out for 2 weeks and contain 5 different magnifiers ranging in strength from 2x to 14x along with check and envelope writing templates. This is an excellent way to find a resource that best suits your needs.
Meeting Rooms are all equipped with wireless listening devices.
The Talking Book Program of the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped provides a unique, digital player and books for blind, visually impaired and physically or reading-disabled individuals. Book cartridges arrive in your mail box, and you set them out for your letter carrier when you’re finished listening. Medina County District Library can help eligible county residents enroll in this free program. Call us at 330-722-2590 for more information.
