"I have used the ZLVSK kit successfully in over a dozen workshops and in accessibility audits, both to increase awareness and to assist with detection and remediation of accessibility issues in Web pages and documents. I will continue to share information on how people can get their own kit, both in our manuals and on our Web site." www.davidberman.com

I used your simulators recently when guest presenting in a class for special education teachers. They are great for conveying the vast dynamics of various vision conditions in a brief amount of time!" I have both purchased Dr. Zimmerman's kits for use in my own research and training activities as well as recommended Dr. Zimmerman to my clients for many years. I have found that his kits are very well made and that the usage of his kits allows designers and engineers to gain a better understanding of what it is like for people with visual disabilities to struggle with inaccessible technologies."

"I just wanted to say that these simulators are used in every sensitivity training I do in our community. I teach in 8 counties of PA from Erie to Clearfield county and the simulators have gone will me to nursing homes, customer's homes and are used at take your kid to work day at our office. The community appreciates the experience and expresses 'understanding' of low vision after using your kit. Our customers' families and the professionals who receive our outreach/sensitivity lecture are asked to read and walk with the simulators. Low vision devices are explored and they are taught sighted/human guide and/or intro to the cane to better understand blindness and low vision. We love these"!
