Enhanced Vision Introduces the Smart Reader

A Portable Text-to-Speech Reading Solution for the Blind and Visually Impaired

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- Enhanced Vision introduces the Smart Reader, a full-page OCR (text-to-speech) reading device to be used around the home, work or school. This highly anticipated product provides convenience and independence for people who are either blind or have low vision by offering accurate and efficient full page OCR technology. With a simple push of a button, users can have any printed text read back to them in a clear, natural-sounding customizable voice.

And like all other Enhanced Vision products, the Smart Reader is built for longevity; Users who have a degenerative eye condition will find the Smart Reader useful now, and in the future, knowing they can comfortably rely on full page text-to-speech to compensate for low vision or blindness.

Enhanced Vision's Smart Reader offers several advantages, including a compact, simple design, and an accurate, quick scanning camera, capable of reading complex page layouts. Smart Reader can read any printed text placed in front of it, such as books, mail, newspapers and receipts. And, in addition to being a full-page reader, this dual high resolution system comes with the convenient option to connect with a monitor or TV, allowing users to increase the text size, and read along at their own adjustable speed. For a true portable experience, attach Smart Reader to Enhanced Vision's 13.3" Portable Battery Operated Monitor and enjoy up to 3.5 hours of reading anywhere!

The main focus of vision assistive technology has always been on making life easier for the visually impaired. Taking into consideration what low vision consumers find most useful, Enhanced Vision is merging cutting-edge technology with unmatched quality, making the Smart Reader an impressive, affordable solution.
