EVidMag – an open-source Electronic Video Magnifier for people with impaired vision

I’m doing some work to develop a low-cost desktop Electronic Video Magnifier system to allow people with impaired vision to view hardcopy documents on a computer monitor, with functions to adjust brightness and contrast, change colour scheme, zoom in and out etc.  Commercial desktop EVMs are available, but cost in the thousands of pounds/dollars.  This system will use an £80 USB document camera, a user’s existing PC and monitor (or e.g. a Raspberry Pi and a TV) and free open-source software.

Would be useful to know if this is of interest to anyone…
