Text reader launched by Intel

18th November 2009

Intel has launched a handheld mobile reader allowing people with learning disabilities and those with poor vision to photograph text and have it read aloud to them digitally.

Using a high resolution camera, the Intel Reader converts printed text into digital text and then reads it aloud while also showing it on a screen. The device, with 2GB of internal memory, can scan up to 600 pages and also convert text from emails and the internet via a USB port and transfer it to an MP3 player or mobile phone for future use.
