The Eye-Snap Reader is a complete reading system that captures an image of printed text using the included camera and reads it back to you. It's easy to use and offers outstanding sound quality along with the industry's highest megapixel camera, assuring superior accuracy. The Low Vision version gives the user the ability to view text magnified up to 18x with numerous text and background color options on the included 19-inch monitor.
The user simply places the printed document on the built-in table, and the Eye-Snap quickly (in approx. 4 seconds) captures an image of the text and begins to read it out loud. Voice volume is adjustable using a control wheel on the base of the unit and the user may choose a voice preference and reading speed to suit their individual preferences.
The Eye-Snap can accommodate document sizes up to a maximum of 12 in. x 17 in. and captures/reads two pages at a time of a hard cover or paperback book. It's a great tool for the blind and those with low vision to use to read bills, mail, magazines, as well as books and other multiple-page documents, and newspapers and other larger-format materials.
The included Keypad was designed to make operating the Eye-Scan easy. It features large tactile buttons that allow the user to: START scanning/capturing a document; PAUSE and later resume reading (ex. when the phone rings); MODE - Adjust to reading a document in column and or tabular (i.e. letter vs. phone bill). A combination of buttons also allows for speaking voice preference (male or female) and reading speed (slower or faster). The keypad plugs into the unit via a USB port, so it does not require batteries.
