The New Livescribe Aegir Smartpen
The Aegir Smartpen: How It Works
The stylish Aegir Smartpen comes with an ink cartridge, a lined notepad, quick start guide, and micro-USB charging cable. Paired with the Livescribe+ mobile app, notes become much more useful when you can organise, tag, search and convert to text using the Aegir Smartpen.
The smartpen itself is comparable in size and weight to a standard ballpoint. It glides smoothly and has a comfortable, easy-to-grip ergonomical design. As it’s so light and easy to use, there is no need to adjust your writing style and it takes little time to get used to the pen.
The Aegir has a capacity to load up to 1,200 A4 pages of data and the battery lasts for an impressive 14 hours. The software is exceptionally capable at reading handwriting and can recognise 22 different languages. With an expert combination of functionality and aesthetic appeal, the Aegir Smartpen is versatile, adaptable and a pleasure to use.
Using the Aegir Smartpen
Transferring written notes and audio recordings to digital devices is fast and simple when you have a fully-paired connection. Recorded notes are accurately transcribed and made ready-to-share across your cloud services from the Livescribe+ app. Furthermore, tapping on the convenient play-back symbols on the Livescribe paper allows you to slow down or speed up the audio recording, control the volume and even bookmark key information.
How the Aegir Smartpen can help Employees
The Aegir Smartpen is an invaluable asset for employees with a wide range of disabilities, thus improving performance. Once equipped with the Aegir Smartpen, employees can work much faster and more efficiently, resulting in an increase in productivity.
The audio recording facility enables slow note-takers and those with chronic fatigue and neurodiverse conditions such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD, to take fewer written notes and spend more time listening and absorbing information. With cutting-edge technology and multifunctional innovation, the Aegir Smartpen is able to accommodate and enhance a diverse workforce.
