Photo of a man using his Aladdin Classic to write a check. The Aladdin Classic Video Magnifier has come to represent independence and the best value in the industry to thousands of users. It displays your printed materials in high-contrast black text on white or white text on black. The white text on black (negative image) is ideal for reading text because there is less glare.

Four simple controls are all it takes to use this device: an On/Off switch, a Magnification Lever, a Picture Control Selector, and a Manual Focus Knob.


The Aladdin Classic features a large, 15.6" x 16.4" (39.6cm wide x 41.7cm deep), smooth non-glare platform, which permits reading heavy books. The viewing area of this platform permits reading a full sheet of paper without repositioning. In addition, a large, easy-to-operate lever allows the reader to partially or totally lock the position of the reading table. This feature makes it easier to read horizontal lines and to write. The table also features adjustable drag and margin stops.
