£1,194.00 (inc VAT) £995.00 (ex VAT)
With its large 10-inch screen, customisable features and intuitive operation, the Compact 10 HD offers all the benefits of a desktop video magnifier, but in a much smaller, foldable, and portable design.
Magnify and read newspapers, letters, and magazines with the Compact 10 HD Speech. It’s easy to use and has a unique swing-out arm which effortlessly captures full-page documents and reads them to you. A tactile indicator at the foot of the device tells you exactly where to place the document you want to read. Once it’s in place, take a snapshot and relax while the Compact 10 HD Speech reads text to you.
With the arm unfolded, you can also easily look at photos, view medicine packaging, and read tinned food labels, without being restricted in your movements. The arm even allows you to write your signature and complete crossword puzzles.
The large, high definition 10-inch touchscreen allows you to display more text. With more words on the screen simultaneously, reading becomes easier and you will have a better understanding of the text – even in high magnification.
The Compact 10 HD Speech powers on instantly, making it quick and easy to read small text whenever you want. It has a built-in rechargeable battery which lasts up to 3.5 hours, and is supplied with a USB C charger cable, which you can plug into a mains USB charger plug (not supplied).
Switch easily between Easy and Advanced Mode. Use Easy Mode for increased ease-of-use: contrast and magnification only; Advanced Mode gives additional functions, including menu, clock, and extra options.

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