Product Description:

Eye-Pal converts print into speech and Braille for the deaf-blind.
Faster than a flatbed scanner and weighing in at just 1 lb., Eye-Pal is a portable USB scanner/reader that instantly converts printed material into speech, text files or refreshable Braille. Eye-Pal may be used with many popular Braille displays, and Eye-Pal may be purchased for use with a PC or Mac computer.

With Eye-Pal’s intelligent design & engineering, it doesn’t get much easier than this.
We designed simplicity and ease of use into all facets of this instant scanner. Eye-Pal has two lightweight legs that pivot into an L-shaped position from their compact carrying position. This securely supports the Eye-Pal, assuring that its scanning camera is always at the exact distance to obtain a crystal clear image. It also serves as a tactile guide for blind users to precisely position the material to be scanned. No camera focus adjustments are ever necessary.

The Eye-Pal works quickly to increase your productivity.
At home, at the office, and even in the dark, Eye-Pal allows you to quickly browse through piles of letters and organize them either as paper or computer files. With Eye-Pal, you can read bound books, newspapers, professional magazines and instructions on food packaging.
