Reading difficulties, like dyslexia, create barriers in the learning path of students. University students want to become more independent in all aspects of their lives, so it can be very frustrating if this independence isn’t reflected in their learning.
With the help of Scanning Pens, and their assistive technology, colleges and universities are providing the support students need to overcome their reading difficulties. Users of our text-to-speech aids are finding a new level of reading independence that they never had; they’re building confidence in themselves. They are able to develop strategies to surpass their expected outcomes while remaining included in their classes.
Our ReaderPens and ExamReaders are helping students rediscover literacy while we aim to help educators find effective new ways to unlock student’s potential.
Assisting in the classroom
Scanning Pens’ ReaderPen gives students that important boost of confidence as they study independently. They can build their vocabulary in classes by using the built-in dictionaries. Users can even store scanned text to review later and upload directly to their devices for sharing. Teachers are also able to assign individual learning objectives using the voice recorder function, or students can record their lectures. There are countless ways educators can use the ReaderPen to support their teaching.
Supporting students during exams
Universities are saving tens of thousands every semester with the help of the ExamReader. A great alternative to the human reader, the ExamReader allows educators to provide support to students in their exams without separating them from their peers. This text-to-speech scanner grants students independence when taking their exams, and their exam anxiety is significantly reduced which often improves their results.
