C-Pen Reader

There are already several apps and resources available for individuals with dyslexia, ADHD, and other learning disabilities.  The C-Pen Reader Pen is a newer device designed to benefit any individuals who struggle with reading.  It is a standalone pen that scans words and speaks them aloud and is noted as a “major technological breakthrough for anyone learning English and is a lifesaver for those who suffer from reading difficulties such as dyslexia.”

The C-Pen Reader is a pocket-sized device that reads any text aloud in a naturally-speaking English voice.  It is noted to be half the size of other portable pen scanners, and because it is smaller and lighter, it can be used as a learning tool for children ages 6 and up!
