The device has an inconspicuously and handy body and is modern in its function so that illiterates are not ashamed to use the system in everyday life.
„abcDARIAN“ has a touch-sensitive, transparent and two-sided display. On the front side the user practices writing. On the back side the learn-software offers assistence. Furthermore, written text can be converted into spoken words. Wearing in-ear headphones one can listen to them while trying to read along.
