C-Pen Reader Scanning Pen Dyslexic.com Review

cpenthumb

Scanning pens, such as the C-Pen Reader, are a popular form of assistive technology which help those with literacy difficulties access printed text. They are especially handy for those with dyslexia as they can read aloud text from books, labels and documents. This tackles literacy difficulties surrounding reading that many dyslexic children and adults face on a day to day basis.

There are many scanner pens which are also approved by The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) for use in exams. This means that students with literacy difficulties can independently take their exam knowing that they can read and understand each question. Other portable scanner pens include the Exam Pen Reader from C-PenIRIS Pen and the Wizcom Reading Pens. To find out more about any of these assistive technology products, please visit the Scanning Pens page on Dyslexic.com.

How does the C-Pen Reader work?

The C-Pen Reader is the latest scanner pen which was released by C-Pen in November 2015. C-Pen also created the 3.5 Bluetooth Portable Scanning Pen and the TS1 Digital Highlighter Pen. These products have now been discontinued, but the new C-Pen Reader is a great replacement.

It uses impressive optical character recognition (OCR)technology to read aloud printed text. With the integrated Collins 10th Edition English Dictionary, individual words can be highlighted and the definition read aloud. This is particularly helpful for dyslexic children and adults who struggle understanding complex words but prefer to hear words read aloud to them. The C-Pen Reader comes complete with a headphone jack so the handy tool can be made more discrete if you are listening to text in public places.

How does it differ from other scanning pens and digital highlighters on the market?

There are lots of different digital highlighters and scanner pens on the market, so what makes the C-Pen Reader any different? Well, it features a much clearer and more natural text-to-speech voice than most reading pens. This makes it a lot easier to understand the words and hear pronunciations. It is also much more accurate when scanning over a line of text. Some pens that read can struggle when moving at a faster pace; however the C-Pen Reader worked quite well.

The size of the C-Pen Reader scanning pen is fantastic. It is half the size of other reading pens and weighs just 50g. Measuring just 13.5cm long, it can be used by younger children from aged 6+ as well as younger children. Plus, its ergonomic design means that it’s very easy to hold and move along a page of text.

The C-Pen Reader is the first portable line scanner on the market that is both Mac and PC compatible. With no software needed, you simply need to connect the pen to your computer via the USB cable and it will appearas an external hard drive. You can scan pieces of text, store to the pens memory and transfer to your computer. This is an extremely useful feature if you are a university student or researcher. The C-Pen Reader also doubles up as a USB drive with 3GB of data space available.

A feature that is very useful is the Voice memo tool. The reading pen doubles up as a dictaphone and allows you to record audio and voice memos. These files are saved to the device and can be listened to or uploaded to your computer at any time.

This week, we launched the brand new C-Pen Reader and Exam Reader on Dyslexic.com! These scanning devices are small, portable and lightweight, and designed to support those with reading difficulties such as dyslexia, or those learning English as a second language.

The C-Pen Reader allows the user to simply run the pen across any printed text, whether that is from books, newspapers or printed labels. This text will then be read aloud from a naturally speaking British English text-to-speech engine, allowing pronunciations of words to be heard. This is useful for those who struggle reading large pieces of text as they can use the pen to read this aloud to them. The integrated electronic dictionary allows the user to scan a word and have the definition displayed and read aloud. The C-Pen Reader saves words that you have looked up previously, so the history is available for you. It also contains a highly accurate optical character recognition (OCR) engine which enables you to capture printed text and save this instantly. The text can be transferred to your PC or Mac and converted into editable text. Follow this link to find out more about the C-Pen Reader >> http://ian.lt/1SVqn4l

The C-Pen Exam Reader has been approved by The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) for use in exams. This allows students to independently take exams knowing that they can read and understand the questions and any additional text.
