ReadEasy Evolve ECO is a new advanced standalone reading machine capable of capturing A4 (letter) sized documents by Visionaid International Ltd.

Based on its predecessor the ReadEasy Evolve, the ReadEasy Evolve ECO boasts some exciting new features!

With the push of a single button the ReadEasy Evolve ECO photographs printed text and within seconds, begins reading it out loud. Its 13MP camera provides a high quality image, while IntelliCapture software prevents image capture when the document is in motion. These work together to ensure the text on your captured document is crisp and clear, offering accurate text to speech. Letters, bank statements, books, recipes, product packaging and more are all read with ease.

With improved document cropping software you can be sure that the ReadEasy Evolve ECO will disregard any background interference, such as wooden or patterned surfaces where your document is placed. Its focus stays on the captured document.

It is more energy efficient than its predecessor; only using a quarter of the power. 

Coming soon is a battery option. This will make the ECO more portable than ever before meaning you can use your device anywhere. 

If you would like to capture larger, up to A3 sized documents, then the ReadEasy Evolve MAX is the best solution.

I just love it - it has given me independence and choice of when I want to read.

My wife has had one of these readers (ReadEasy Evolve) for more than three years. It's used every day, several times a day, and it's never missed a beat. It works so well, I haven't bothered to update the software. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. My wife's life would be immeasurably poorer without it and both she and I would like to say a big Thank You. My wife went temporarily blind 40 years ago and we looked at the Kurzweil reader, not for long, because it was about £25,000, more than six times my annual salary at the time. We are both long retired, but the cost of the REE is only a small fraction of our annual income. Keep up the good work!

I live alone and the ReadEasy has been a life-saver. There have been times when it was used for up to 10 hours per day. Very pleased with the range of voices and the ability to read newspapers, particularly like that it caters for hearing and visual impairments.

Usefulness is much improved with the addition of the feature pack and monitor to be able to see by enlarging.
