Who is Readit for?
Readit is for any visually impaired or blind computer
user (not advanced!), who wants near instant, easy and accurate access to
printed or electronic format documents.
It has been specifically designed for the requirements of
students, business professionals and anyone on the move with a laptop PC.
However, it also makes an ideal desktop solution that can
easily be moved between locations (e.g. home and work).
Its pull out positioning guide also allows users with no
vision at all to perfectly place and capture their documents.
Readit could be the ideal system for you if you:
- Are looking for something light weight and
portable to enable you to read documents with the
added ability to store them on your computer once captured.
- Are used to using a standard magnifying system but
find the constant movement of text on the screen and the
continual repositioning of your documents make you tired, nauseous
or just frustrated.
- Would like to be more independent
and read your own documents.
- Have a learning disability.
- Find reading with a video magnifier too
difficult because you can't fit enough characters on the screen to
read at your desired speed.
- Have a deteriorative eye condition
and would like a system that is suitable both now and for the
What are Readit benefits?
Readit features many benefits over standard video
magnifiers and digital capture systems including:
- Users Read Faster: This is Readit number one benefit. With digital capture and OCR of A4 documents, the
spoken and reformatted large print text can be read over twice as fast as
traditionally enlarged text from standard video magnifiers. It also allows
you to read for longer periods with much less eye strain.
- Read back of your documents: Users
get the benefit of both automatic scrolling AND speech output of their
document if they wish, further helping to increase reading speed and
- Fast multi-page capture: 30 pages
per minute capture means you can capture and store entire text books or long
documents in minutes, not hours. Once they're captured, you never need to
carry them with you again! Readit even remembers your position in each
document when you re-open it!
- Ease of use: Readit is so easy
to use. Just place your documents, press "Enter" and your document is being
displayed to you and read aloud seconds later.
- Incredible accuracy: Readit uses the latest camera and recognition technology to ensure it is as
accurate as possible, even on complicated documents newspaper layouts or
tins of food.
- Glossy document capture: Many camera
systems have difficulty with glossy documents but this is not the case for
the Readit! Although it has integrated lighting, the camera and
software have been optimised to capture without the lights being required,
meaning even glossy magazines can be captured without difficulty.
- Licenses for 3 installs: Install the
Readit software on up to 3 machines with every purchase, allowing the user
to read in multiple locations.
- No X/Y table required: Readit virtual X/Y table with word wrapping means once you've captured a document,
you'll never again accidentally miss a line when reading.
