Best place to look for large print books and low vision aides?

Hi there! I am lokoing for some low vision aides such as a digital or talking meat thermometer (possibly a candy thermometer too, as I LOVE to cook) and also some large print books. Does anyone know of good sites to go for these? I have tried MaxiAides, but they are soooo slow, and sometimes I don't even get my order. Anyway, suggestions?? Thanks!

Re:Best place to look for large print books and low vision aides?



I think the best place for both books and low vision aides are at amazon. I get books the all the time, it's quick, easy and convenient. I get things there all the time.

Re:Best place to look for large print books and low vision aides?



Not sure why you have problems with MaxiAides, perhaps you have a older model? When did you get it? I got mine about half a year ago and it's working well so far.

Re:Best place to look for large print books and low vision aides?



As someone whose eyesight is getting progressively worse, this is a useful site. I also think digital devices like the Kindle and the iPad w/ their large font size options will help people like me too. So, that may mitigate large print books somewhat.

Thank you.
