American Rescue Plan Act

The American Rescue Plan Act is providing funds to schools and libraries across America to address learning loss and the academic needs of students.

Find out more on how we can partner with you to ensure all of your students have the tools they need to succeed!

What this means

Schools and libraries will have access to funds to purchase assistive technology. The funds will be allocated by state and those states will have access to the funds until 2023. Now is the opportunity to review your current environment and plan for addressing in-person learning, distance learning or a hybrid approach.


How can we help?

Optelec’s mission has always been to improve the quality of life for the visually impaired by developing simple and effective solutions. We believe that everyone should have the same access in education and employment. We have been helping students, teachers, and parents since 1975.

Optelec carries a wide range of hand-held and desktop video magnifiers designed to help you stay in touch with those around you. Our products help you lead an independent life by enabling you to fully participate in school or work and allowing you to continue to enjoy hobbies. We offer solutions that scan and read text aloud for people who find that reading has become too difficult due to eye strain.


Compact 10 with Speech:

With its large 10” screen, the Compact 10 HD Speech magnifies newspapers, letters, and magazines for viewing of text, pictures, and other details. Its purposely designed swing-out arm opens a whole new range of possibilities. It allows the Compact 10 HD Speech to capture full-page documents and then read them to you with one press on the touchscreen.


ClearView GO:

ClearView GO offers the same as a desktop video magnifier, but in a compact and foldable design. It is the ideal solution for people who need magnification at different locations such as classroom to classroom and then home. The ClearView GO has a convenient 3-in-1 rotatable camera that allows you to magnify text and objects up close, in the distance, and even to look at yourself.

ClearView C:

The Optelec ClearView C is a modern desktop video magnifier that is designed to improve your reading experience. The unique design provides you with more working space to read, enjoy craftwork, or write with comfort and ease without being restricted in movement. Thanks to its superior camera, the ClearView C offers sharp magnified images in full color and high contrast.
