Assistive Technology Center

The Library has enhanced the Assistive Technology Center with a SARA CE unit (Scanning and Reading Appliance, Camera Edition) for the blind and those with low vision capability.  The unit can scan a printed page under a camera and instantly start reading it with RealSpeak human-sounding speech.  Users can select from various features: pause reading, move forward and backward, hear a word spelled out; change the reading speed and volume; select a different voice; or read in one of 18 languages.  Librarians are on hand to assist users learn how to use the SARA CE unit. The Assistive Technology Center is located on the 2nd floor of the Main Library (55 W. Third Avenue, San Mateo).  Funding support for this service enhancement was provided by the San Mateo Public Library Foundation.
