The C-Pen Reader pen scanner is a major technological breakthrough for anyone learning English, Spanish or French and is a life-saver for those who suffer from reading difficulties such as dyslexia. The C-Pen Reader is a totally portable, pocket-sized device that reads text aloud with an English, Spanish or French human-like digital voice.
The internal dictionary puts the power of the Collins English Dictionary (30th Anniversary Edition Tenth edition) or Oxford French and Spanish Dictionaries in your hands. Simply pass the nib across a word and it instantly displays the definition and reads it aloud. It is also a scanner for capturing lines of text and uploading to a PC or Mac, making it ideal for students, teachers and professionals to capture essential information.
The pen is half the size of other portable pen scanners on the market and at 50g is half the weight. Importantly this means it can be used by a younger generation of learners making this learning tool suitable for children (age 6+) and adults. This is the only portable line scanner on the market that is truly portable and requires no computer; however, when wanting to use with a computer is compatible with PC, Mac, Linux & Chromebooks. 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. Other features include a built-in voice recorder with playback.
