this session, we will explain the development process of our video
magnification system from the planning to the completion of development based
on the test results of the end users who are the low vision. And we will also
explain the detailed functions and performances of our new video magnification
system, especially our excellent user interface and our unique industrial
HIMS, had been developing Braille notetaker named Braille Sense for 6 years. Based
on such development experiences of hardware, software and deep understanding of
