Page turners may be useful if you find it difficult to turn the pages of a book, magazine or newspaper.
Manual page turners are simply a stick, held in the hands or mouth, with a rubber tip used to turn pages by sliding them to the next side. Electric page turners are powered, fully automated devices which hold a book and turn the pages when switches are activated. Some models can be used with a range of switches including pressure activated, sound activated, suck or blow operation.
If you cannot manage reading with equipment such as magnifiers and page turners, an alternative maybe to listen to audio books or newspapers. These are available in various formats such as MP3, CD and cassette. Many audio books can also be played on DAISY players, designed to help make audio books accessible to individuals who are blind or have low vision.
Your local library may loan 'talking books', or there are free postal services available such as Calibre Audio Library. You could also subscribe to National Talking Newspapers and Magazines to obtain audio newspapers and magazines.
