The LyriQ Assistive Text-to-Speech Reader is an AUTOMATIC SCAN text-to-speech reader, which means the user does not have to press any buttons for simple and immediate text-to-speech conversion.
The LyriQ also has an incredible fifteen (15) hour rechargeable battery, weighs only 3lbs, and folds flat for easy portability.
The LyriQ is designed to assist people living with blindness or vision impairments by scanning printed documents and read them out loud.
It is spectacularly fast, extremely accurate, and very easy to use. With the LyriQ Assistive Text-to-Speech Reader, you can read a book, an envelope, the letter that came in it, a prescription label, and anything else.
Place the document on the device’s base surface: the LyriQ will immediately scan it and start reading the contents out loud: no waiting, pressing buttons or any other ways of getting frustrated. The interactive and responsive LyriQ takes a couple of seconds to start the text to speech.

“I purchased a LyriQ a few weeks ago. And I’m just calling to say how pleased I am with it. It’s so good. I have just have to say how wonderful it is. It never fails to read what I need it to read. So it’s very good. I can read my own mail and do my own things.” – Olivia
