Claro ScanPen Android Features
Claro ScanPen advances reading aloud support. It gives access to printed text materials and documents for all, in a wide range of languages.
- Take a photo of the text or select a photo of the text document from your camera roll.
- Highlight with your finger or stylus which section of text you want to hear spoken to you.
- Listen as Claro ScanPen instantly reads the text back to you using a human quality voice in a language of your choice.
With your finger (or stylus) you can highlight all of the text, word by word or line by line. Tap anywhere to stop the speech.
Claro ScanPen has no access to the internet or any reference material, so is perfect to use as a computer reader under exam and test conditions, helping students who cannot read text very well (e.g. students with dyslexia) to listen to the exam test paper questions and information. It can also be used for quickly converting class handout materials, printed presentations, instructions, books – in fact anything containing printed texts. Great for independent access and learning.
Claro ScanPen uses the latest premium Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology to convert your picture into text and uses Android system voices to read the text back to you.
A share button can also be enabled in advanced settings. This lets you export your image to other apps, email and other destinations.
