The Oculus Quest 2 has some great potential benefits for those with low vision and even those who're legally blind. As one such person, I've sought various ways to attain accessibility, and I found that within VR headsets, I've better vision than without. This isn't an entirely new idea, as digital magnifiers are a common tool, but a less common one is Digital Glasses. Several companies make them, but they're very expensive and have a very narrow field through them. The passthrough functionality of the Quest 2 could give some great accessibility/mobility capabilities if zooming/magnification software were implemented into the core system. This would also aid in many who have troubles readying/navigating the basic menus that exist, as I do. Eitehr the ability to zoom existing windows or to create a Magnifier window within the Oculus Quest 2 display that you can manipulate the zoom amount and focus it around to view at menus, throughout your environment and more. This could prove useful on so many levels for so many users, not just the low vision and legally blind ones and give a less-expensive alternative to Digital Glasses, which cost anywhere from $2k to $5k in price. Windows 10 has a base magnification software, and Android has its own zooming software in the core system. Why not Oculus Quest 2?
