EYE-PAL Text to Speech Reader
Eye-Pal Text to Speech Reader Converts print into speech and Braille
Faster than a flatbed scanner and weighing in at just one pound, the Eye-Pal Text to Speech Reader is a portable USB scanner/reader that instantly converts printed material into speech, txt or MP3 files or refreshable Braille. The Eye-Pal may be used with Braille displays from Freedom Scientific, Optelec, and Handytech. The Eye-Pal may be purchased for use with a PC or Mac computer.
Best of both worlds. Eye-Pal is now compatible with Kurweil K1000.
With the Eye-Pal’s intelligent design & engineering, it doesn’t get much easier
We designed simplicity and ease of use into all facets of this instant scanner. The Eye-Pal has two lightweight legs that pivot into an L-shaped position from their compact carrying position. This securely supports the Eye-Pal, assuring that its scanning camera is always at the exact distance to obtain a crystal-clear image. It also serves as a tactile guide for users who are blind to precisely position the material to be scanned. No camera focus adjustments are ever necessary.
The Eye-Pal Text to Speech Reader works quickly to increase your productivity
At home, at the office, and even in the dark, the Eye-Pal allows you to quickly browse through piles of letters and organize them either as paper or computer files. With the Eye-Pal, you can read bound books, newspapers, professional magazines and instructions on food packaging.
Text can be saved as a txt file for future editing. With the press of a single key, the Eye-Pal will describe a page layout as a sighted person sees it. You can instantly read text placed under the camera using a Braille program.
The Eye-Pal’s patented motion detector can scan up to 20 pages per minute in a bound book. Just turn a page in your book and wait for the shutter sound. Turn the page again. It’s that easy. With a single keystroke, you can easily start and stop scanning or reading or get the description of the page layout spoken as a sighted reader sees it.
Save an MP3 file and carry it with you by uploading it onto your iPod, or flash drive or burning it onto a CD.
Less is more. The Eye-Pal’s intelligent design aligns your text.
