C-Pen ReaderPen is a portable, pocket-sized scanning pen that reads text out aloud with a human-like digital voice. ReaderPen is particularly useful in promoting independent learning for students suffering from reading difficulties such as dyslexia. It features embedded first tier dictionaries for swift access to word translations/definitions, a function allowing storage of text captured from text books, and a voice memo function.
ReaderPen is Mac, PC and Linux compatible. There is no software required, just connect the pen up to a computer with a USB cable and it appears as an external hard drive.
- OCR Engine. ReaderPen features high accuracy OCR (optical character recognition) that enables you to capture and save quotes and other text of interest instantly. The text is saved in text files which is then easily transferred to your computer. Extremely handy if you are a student or a researcher or if you just want to save some text of interest. Simply use the pen to scan a word, a paragraph, or why not full pages.
- Text to speech. Use ReaderPen to read printed text for you! ReaderPen features a high quality naturally speaking British English voice. Use it to listen to pronunciations or to help you read in general. Why not really benefit from the OCR and capture larger amount of text which ReaderPen reads for you while you follow the text in the text book visually? More senses = better learning.
- Dictionary. Not sure about a word? Reader Pen contains high quality electronic dictionaries. Capture the word(s) and they are located in the dictionary for you.
