An Explanation of the Colorino

Article excerpt from the field, by Donna J. Jodhan

Originally published in Fred's Head From APH


When I had sufficient vision, I used to depend heavily on colors to help me identify things. I can remember when I was growing up that the yellow cup was mine while the blue and red ones belonged to my brothers. Colors helped everyone in the house easily differentiate toys, towels, toothbrushes, clothes, even certain foods and eventually similar vehicles.


Today, due to a visual impairment, I can no longer use colors to help me identify things. Fortunately, there are talking color detectors that can help those with visual impairments overcome the challenges presented by our color-coded world. One such product is the Colorino, from APH .


The Colorino is an accessible, portable device that requires two AAA batteries (included) and comes with instructions available in braille, large print, and audio formats. With the push of a button, the Colorino will clearly and accurately announce the color of anything you place in front of it. Matching clothes or discerning documents and goods from each other has never been easier. The Colorino can be helpful both in and out of the home. For ease of transport, the Colorino comes with a protective carrying case that allows you take the talking color identifier anywhere you may happen to need it.
