Description

This reading machine combines Openbook Software with the folding Pearl Camera bringing portability to scanning and reading. It can scan 20 pages per minute while reading, and offers a choice of voices. It connects to your PC via USB and comes with built-in LED lighting. The folding camera deploys in seconds to connect to your PC and snap a picture of your reading material. And with so many features for those with macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other causes of low vision, you can tailor the appearance of text on your screen- adjust the font style, size, character spacing, and color; view with split-screen and use Masking and Word Spotlighting to help you follow the text as it is read.

The Pearl and Openbook portable reading solution has automatic page capture. In automatic mode, the PEARL senses motion, so it knows to snap an image whenever you turn a page. Place your paperback novel sideways, and the PEARL will snap two pages at a time and maintain the pagination. For larger books, you can capture even pages first. Flip the book over to capture the odd pages. You can keep turning pages and capturing images while OpenBook reads.

Most of our products and some publications in large print (16 point and above) can be sent by freepost under the 'Articles for the Blind' scheme.

However, the Articles for the Blind scheme offers no guarantees of delivery or insurance for valuable items.

When we send your products, the package will include a 'dispatch note' with details of the contents. It is really important to check this against the actual contents of the package and alert us immediately (within 7 working days) of receiving the order about any discrepancies.
