To help a visually impaired individual to perform job duties or a visually impaired student to study effectively, an assistive technology solution typically includes a video magnifier for reading, a screen magnifier software application for writing, electronic communication and Internet access, a good task light and a portable hand held magnifier for spot reading.

For example, a college professor who is visually impaired can read texbooks with a video magnifier, write reports, grade paper, communicate through emails on the computer through screen magnifier application.
