Quicktionary Reading Pen 2

- About Quicktionary - Product Lines - Technical Data - Home -

The new Quicktionary II Reading Pen is a revolutionary hand-held, pen shaped, high resolution scanner with advanced text-to-speech-technology. It functions as an educational tool, providing "assistive technology" to people with reading difficulties and students of English-As-A-Second Language. Unlike PC-based high-tech reading aides, Quicktionary II ReadingPen is completely portable and enables user to see and hear the scanned text.

Scanned words are displayed in large font and are clearly pronounced - automatically or at the click of a button using Lernout & Hauspie, advanced "Text-to-Speech" technology. The built-in loudspeaker and earphone jack enable external and private listening. With the aid of an easy-to-read menu, the user can control volume, pitch and speed at which the word will be read aloud. The definition and syllabic breakdown of the word can be viewed at the push of a button.

The Quicktionary II ReadingPen contains over 200,000 definitions from the American Heritage College Dictionary Third Edition, and recognizes over 400,000 words, including inflected nouns and verbs. It provides idioms, etymology, phonetic representation (utilizing the International Pronunciation Alphabet), parts of speech, alternative spellings and examples of usage.

In addition to its ability to scan inverted and hyphenated text, the Reading Pen remembers the last 75 words scanned and can recall, pronounce and define them again. The product also is adjustable for left or right-handed users. It uses and comes complete with two "AAA" batteries, a user manual, quick reference, earphone, card carrying case (plastic) with opticard.
