Apple iPad helps 9-year-old with eye-sight problems read!
And if you’ve been thinking all along, that the iPad is just a tool for communication and entertainment, you’ve probably got it wrong! In a brilliant example of just how well the iPad could do as a life-support system too, 9-year-old Holly Bligh, a resident of Melbourne, Australia, has used her iPad to help her see and read better. Due to albinism, little Holly has had eye-sight problems, and has had to use magnifying glasses to read. Teachers in her school would increase font sizes to help her read out of her notes too! Now, all Holly needs to do, is use her iPad to increase text sizes, with a simple touch of her finger, making reading a lot easier. Also, reading from the iPad helps Holly read twice as long as opposed to using magnified printing material. And on getting wind of this, Steve Jobs was more than pleased, and also read the email sent to him by Bligh’s mother, to Apple’s top 100 leaders!
