The App that Replaces Handheld Magnifiers and CCTV’s
EyeSight by SightTech was developed to be the most intuitive magnification and color enhancement tool in iOS history.
Designed specifically to assist low vision users, this new app allows users to magnify any printed material up to 12X, simply by using a few hand gestures with their iOS device: In addition- users can toggle through 6 distinct color-contrast combinations to suit their individual preferences and visual enhancement needs.
When combined with the use of a HDMI TV screen and built-in iOS mirroring capabilities, EyeSight can magnify small text up to 100X or more.
Utilizing EyeSight makes one thing especially clear: antiquated, single-function, hand-held magnifiers and CCTV’s are finally a thing of the past!
The color enhancements available on the Eye Sight app:
- Normal (full color)
- Enhanced Positive
- Enhanced Negative
- Yellow on Blue
- Yellow on Black
- Blue on White
EyeSight works with common hand gestures within iOS 5 technology to deliver the easiest, most intuitive user interface available today.
It’s as simple as A, B, C…
- Simply use the reverse-pinch gesture in combination with the device’s camera to increase magnification.
- Use the single-finger-single-tap gesture to toggle through the different color settings.
- Use the two-finger-double-tap gesture to capture a screenshot of your image for emailing, note taking, and more.
To bring up the EyeSight settings menu at any time, just touch the icon located in the bottom right hand corner of the screen (when the home button is on the left).
What iDevices does the EyeSight App work best with?
The EyeSight App works best with the iPhone 5 and the 4th Generation iPad. It will also work with the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and the iPad 3. We do not recommend using EyeSight on an iPod Touch or earlier versions of iPhones and iPads.
What stand do you recommend using with your iPad?
The stand we originally suggested with the utilization of the EyeSight app is no longer in production. We are currently finding the best solution available and will keep you posted.
Is EyeSight VoiceOver accessible?
No; the current version of EyeSight uses gestures that mimic those found when using VoiceOver. We recommend turning off VoiceOver before launching the EyeSight app.
Why is my screen black?
The screen normally displays black when the camera is being impeded. Be sure that your finger or case is not covering the rear facing camera.
Does the EyeSight app support AirPlay mirroring?
Yes; you need to enable AirPlay mirroring on your iDevice. Please refer to the instructions on Apple’s website
How do I prevent the app from “crashing?”
All apps do occasionally crash. This is usually due to numerous apps running simultaneously. Please follow these instructions that will greatly limit your iDevice from being overworked:
I purchased the wrong app, can I get a refund?
Yes – however; Apple assesses and approves all refund decisions. Here is the link to refund app purchases made through iTunes or the App Store:
