At the church I attend, they (we) use a ceiling mounted projector to project the words to the songs as well as sermon "highlites", onto a screen.
This is all well and good, but it has it's draw backs as well.
One of those draw backs is known as reflective glare.
This makes it nearly impossible for those with bad eyesight to read what's being displayed on the screen. So when it comes to the song service, they simply don't sing along as they are not able to se the words. And when it comes to the sermon "highlites" they can be seen looking at others notes.
So a couple of weeks ago, I had this idea.
What if a person were to build/create an electronic "song book" which these people could use?
It would receive either an IR or RF signal transmitted from the sound tech's; or it may be "uploaded" via a usb, before the service.
It would consist of both a brightness and contrast controls, which the user could adjust for their own comfort. Also it could also possibly have a selection of fonts, but that would REALLY take some doing.
I refer to these as "books" as they would open up just as a book would, but it would consist of one or two LCD screens; thereby helping those with problems with their eyesight, to be able to join in with the others.
So with this in mind, I would like to know if these "books" already exist, and if so, how much are they?
