The Vocatex Plus is a high definition (HD) desktop video magnifier that can be used to view and magnify your books, newspapers, magazines, letters and colour photographs with high quality magnification and in high contrast. In addition, the Vocatex Plus is also a reading machine that will read text displayed in the live magnified image aloud in crystal clear human sounding speech.
With the press of a single button this standalone machine starts reading the passage of text that is positioned under the column selector (this is a vertical line that runs down the middle of the screen). A customisable reading frame tracks each word as it is read aloud providing an engaging reading experience whereby the user can follow the words that are being read outloud. However, if you prefer you can just sit back, relax your eyes and let the Vocatex Plus read to you.
The intelligent reading functions offered by the Vocatex Plus, you can now read entire pages of text without any interruption by simply changing the position of your text under the camera. Reading an article in a newspaper has become really easy!
Press the read button on the Vocatex Plus to start reading and then continue to move the article under the camera as you progress through the text. On the bottom of the screen, a progress indicator will be displayed that shows you how far along you are in the text and can help you identify when it is time to move to the next passage or column of text. The Vocatex Plus will automatically recognise new text and continue reading without pausing.
