Makes Reading Easy Again

Does reading your newspaper or favorite book become too tiresome with a video magnifier? Do you lose time searching through text? Now enjoy the Optelec ClearView+ Speech, a completely new approach for the integration of OCR and text-to-speech technology in a desktop video magnifier. Just sit back, relax, and listen to any printed documents as they are read aloud.

The ClearView+ Speech combines video magnification and accurate text-to-speech that makes it easy to select what you want to read. It allows you to enlarge materials to a more comfortable size or change the high contrast viewing modes with one master dial. To activate the Speech feature, just simply touch the screen and instantly enjoy listening to articles, letters and books with a natural sounding voice and full page overview.

The Optelec ClearView+ Speech is available as a complete system or as a separate module. Thanks to its compatibility, all existing ClearView+ models (G1 & G2) will be upgradable; meaning you too can enjoy the new Speech functionality if you're an existing ClearView+ user!
