The Optelec ClearReader+ is a completely new aid with a unique function: the automatic conversion of printed text into audible speech. Thanks to its appropriate design and logical functioning it has been immediately accepted by the mostly elderly user group. Users place their printed matter under the folding camera arm and after pressing the scan button, the camera takes a photo of the text and the Optelec ClearReader+ automatically reads out the text. The shape and color of the control buttons make them easy to distinguish and use by the visually impaired and the blind. The device is battery-operated and, thanks to the handle, very portable.
