Your eyes may tire using this workbook, so rest often:
Work / Rest / Work / Rest
If you work just 10 – 15 minutes a day with this book, on and off, you will start to learn new visual habits.
You may also prefer to have a friend or family member read aloud the part of the text that provides learning information, and then view the text yourself only when visual exercises are presented.
Another option is to have your computer read the text to you. Nearly all computers have this option, which can be activated in the “Accessibility” section of your control panel. Other commercial programs are also available that read displayed text aloud. Some are simple-to-use and available for free without trial expiration dates. Check with a low vision rehabilitation specialist for more information.
