One item that we've found to be helpful for low-vision users is the Enhanced Vision DaVinci HD/OCR Desktop Magnifier<https://www.enhancedvision.com/low-vision-product-line/davinci-all-in-one-hd-video-magnifier-with-text-to-speech.html>. We've used it extensively in classroom settings in the last few years and with a price tag of $2,995 it could help put a small dent in your budget :)

Subject: [Athen] Smartboards 3D Printers and high priced items

We have a wonderful donor who has helped us stock our AT lab with our current software and hardware over the past two years. We have tried to be frugal and still have another $15,000 to spend. The donor wants to see her money spent so we are trying to decide what we might buy that fulfills the following criteria (a) is useful to our students and won't be obsolete quickly (b) if not directly useful to students, then useful in increasing awareness in staff and faculty (c) is somewhat showy and/or state-of-the-art so that the donor can be proud.

We currently have the following: Read & Write Gold, JAWS, Zoomtext, Dragon, large dual monitors, adjustable tables, task lights, ergonomic chairs, new high-speed scanner, ABBYY, Duxbury, Math Type, a thermoform printer and a Braille printer, Livescribe pens, various tactile tools for the blind including a calculator. Does anyone have any recent large purchases that have made in impact?
