The C-Pen Exam Reader is a scanning device ideal for anyone who is learning English as a second language, or those who suffer from literacy difficulties such as dyslexia. The Exam Reader has been approved by The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) for use in exams. This means that students can independently take exams knowing that they can read and understand the questions. It is a small, portable and lightweight device and is half the size and weight than other portable pen scanners. Students can simply run the pen across printed exam questions and instantly hear this read aloud. The C-Pen Exam Reader features a naturally speaking British English text-to-speech engine which allows students to listen to pronunciations of words or to listen to paragraphs of text read aloud.
