The Company
Since 1975, Optelec has been developing simple and effective solutions for the
visually impaired for personal, work and educational use. It all started when Mr.
F.J. Tieman developed the first video magnifier for a customer who could no longer
see and read with glasses. Over the years, Optelec opened offices throughout
the world and developed many new product lines. Optelec’s current portfolio
includes a variety of easy-to-use desktop, portable and laptop video magnifiers,
text-to-speech devices and braille products. With these products, users can
improve their quality of life and regain their independence and mobility.
Corporate Philosophy
“ Improving the quality
of life for the
visually impaired, reaching out
with simple and effective solutions.”
Electronic video magnifiers help users to read
letters, sort out mails, manage financial transactions,
prepare meals, perform hobbies and more;
the possibilities are endless. Desktop video
magnifiers can be used at home and work, while
portable video magnifiers can be used on the go.
Optelec’s mission is simple: “Improving the quality of life of visually impaired
and dyslexic people – reaching out with simple and effective solutions.” Our
aim is to help anyone with a visual impairment, whether it is blindness, any
degree of vision impairment or dyslexia, with simple to use and intuitive
products. These products are designed to help you lead an independent and
full life: to allow you to stay in touch with those around you, to enable you to
continue school or work and to help you with your hobbies.
For people who find reading tiring, there are solutions
that read text aloud. The Optelec text-to-speech
devices scan and read any printed document using
a naturally sounding voice. Many reading voices and
languages are available, allowing users to select
their preferred settings.
When medical treatments are fully exhausted, there are still many assistive
products available that can help. These are the products that Optelec offers with the hope of making a difference and improving the life of someone with a
visual impairment. Because at Optelec we truly believe that
There are several braille devices that can be easily
connected to any PC, tablet or phone. This gives the
user the possibility to be independent and flexible
in the home and work environment. Portable braille
products can be connected to a smart phone and
can be used anywhere, anytime.
