PURPOSE: To enable an individual with low vision to call bingo games. The numbers on the existing bingo number disks were too small to be read by an individual with low vision. A set of disks were cut from thick plywood using a jigsaw. The disk were painted and large numbers were placed on the disks using Letraset. A bar was placed at the bottom of numbers that could be confused with other numbers that look the same from the top and the bottom. The disks were then sealed with matte varnish to keep the numbers from peeling off. Circles of vinyl were glued to the back of each disk to make it easier for the user to differentiate the front and the back and to keep the disks from sliding on the number board. DIMENSIONS: The disks are 10 millimeters thick. COLOR: The disks are yellow and the numbers are black. TITLE: Better Bingo. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Vol 21 no 4, Summer 2001: p. 16.
