Synopsis: MagGlass is a user-friendly digital magnifying glass app with binocular-esque functionality designed for the visually impaired. My name is Stephane Lefebvre and I am a legally blind developer who has created an accessibility app tailored for individuals with vision impairments. My app, named MagGlass, serves as a digital magnifier.
