VisionAid International Readit 19 inch - Discontinued
Readit - the World's most sophisticated low vision desktop reading solution
Revolutionary is a word used too often; however, the Readit is indisputably the most advanced desktop auto reader available.
With Readit you can:
- View and enlarge your documents and distant objects using its dedicated CCTV camera.
- Read up to 3x faster, and for much longer periods of time
- Photograph your documents up to A3 in size
- Accurate to 6pt text (newspaper average is 10pt)
- Automatically scroll and read your documents
- Store your documents
- Export for editing in Microsoft Word or listen to on your MP3 player
- Simply exit Readit's software and you have a high specification PC to use!
So why is the Readit so much better than a standard electronic magnifier?
The main reason is that the Readit makes reading so much faster and less tiring.
With Readit's advanced automatic text scrolling, you no longer have to move the page around under the camera manually. You can choose to have your document displayed to you in the way that suits your reading style. What's more, you can have Readit actually read your document to you as it scrolls, in any one of four included life-like voices.
Enhanced reading modes
This unique patented viewing mode allows you to retain your document layout and full colour images whilst fully enhancing the text. You can simply click on a word to start Readit reading your document to you from that point.
This view stretches all of your document's text into a single line meaning you can just set the speed of scolling and reading, sit back, and read your document.
This view centers one word on each line so you can just set the speed of scolling and reading, sit back, and read your document.
This view fits as many words as it can onto each line and then lets you scroll and read them vertically.
Readit's other incredible features include:
A3 capture size
Redit PC is the first and only machine that allows you to read the whole page of a tabloid newspaper again! Anyone who has tried reading a newspaper in a scanner based reading machine will know how awkward this can be.
Large book and round surface capturing
Thanks to its advanced software, Readit automatically straightens the spines of books for you - something which scanner based reading machines cannot. Incredibly it can also read labels on tins of food and even some prescription medicine bottles!
Glossy document capture
Thanks to Readit's advanced software, even documents inside plastic folder wallets or glossy magazines are recognised as if they were a matt surface.
High speed capture
Capture 20 pages per minute and begin reading as soon as the first has finished processing. Typical pages take just 25 seconds on a normal computer. This compares to just 3 pages per mintue for the fastest scanner based reading machine, the ReadEasy.
Unlimited document storage
Readit's only limit on the number and size of your documents is the amount of hard disk space you have. Each page occupies approximately 5 MB.
Every Readit comes with not one, but four human sounding voices as standard (two UK accent and two US accent). The are from AT&T and are renowned for being the best voices currently available.
Custom designed keypad
Although Readit can be controlled entirely from a standard keyboard, every Readit includs a high contrast, tactile USB keypad which means you don't have to memorise any keystrokes and makes operating the Readit very intuitive.
Height and tilt adjustable monitor up to 24 inches in size
To ensure that Readit's screen is at the perfect ergonimic position for every user, it is fully height and tilt adjustable.
Multiple help modes
Readit's help modes let even the most technophic users teach themselves how to use the system in a matter of minutes, with on screen and speech output help when required.
Export your documents
Once you have captured a document you can export it as an RTF document (with pictures and formatting), a plain text document (ideal for making enlarged copies of text) and even an MP3 to listen to!
Readit is available in most European languages. Please contact us for details.
