“Reading is a simple pleasure that we often take for granted until vision loss makes it difficult,” said Daniel Roth, M.D., an associate clinical professor at Robert Wood Johnson School of Medicine who led the study. “Our findings show that at a relatively low cost, digital tablets can improve the lives of people with vision loss and help them reconnect with the larger world.”
Reading on my iPad is wonderful. I prefer digital to print, these days.
Although I'm already a fast reader (I took a speed reading course 20 years ago), the iPad Kindle's app lets me zoom though books.
What I like: the backlight. My eyes don't get tired.
What I don't like: nothing. What's not to like? With unlimited reading material I'm a happy little camper... :-)
