PAC Mate Omni

“I am a thirty-two-year-old teacher of the visually impaired and have been blind, but with a degree of useable vision, since birth. The PAC Mate™ is one of the best accessibility products that I have ever used. I asked many of my blind co-workers for their advice or opinions, and the PAC Mate was their overwhelming recommendation. The decision to get it has been one of the best that I could have ever made! ”
- Jaimie - Gaffney, South Carolina
