Page turners

From ATWiki

Jump to: navigation, search


A page turner is a device that allows a person to read a book, document, manual etc. by turning the pages. These devices can be used in multiple positions including standing, sitting, and lying down. They allow the reader to peruse documents by turning pages forward or backward, continuously or one page at a time.

Required Assistance

Page Turners may require assistance with loading and mounting the document, positioning the operating control for the user, and occasionally clean the turning mechanism.[1]


Operation

Page turners can be operated (depending on the brand) with multi-switch, with a visual scanner, and/or any single switch.
