A Double X-Y Platform for Randsight-Type Instruments.
Genensky, S. M.; And Others
One of a series on the visual information transfer problems of the partially sighted, the report contains a detailed description of the double X-Y platform, a mechanical device used in conjunction with a closed circuit television system to permit users to read printed or handwritten materials and to take notes on or copy from the material. Also described are alternative approaches for handling visual information transfer problems and experiments (the results of which were inconclusive) with either single or double X-Y platforms. Appendixes contain instructions for using the double X-Y platform, a description of the platform's construction, and additional experimenter observations and comments. (LH)
