The services of the Galgóczi Erzsébet City Library
For the visually impaired
The Adult Readers’ Service of the Central Library provides ancillary devices with our visually impaired readers/users, which facilitate reading.
The PRISMA type reading machine installed at our library is capable of magnification in sizes 4 to 30. Image set-up and definition are adjustable. It can be used for reading and writing. The text to be read is presented on a large TV screen (51 cm in diameter). This machine is excellent for the reading of dictionaries, newspapers, encyclopaedias, or texts set in small font size. Our personnel will provide assistance to the use of this machine.
