The student scans the printed text with the tip of the C-Pen Reader. The C-Pen’s in-built camera and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) system convert the text into speech, thereby enabling the student to hear aloud the printed material in a human-like digital voice.

Students can hear the spoken text either through the C-Pen Reader’s speaker or by connecting headphones into the device.

Following are the main features of C-Pen Reader:
