Portable or Handheld Readers

A portable handheld reader combines a digital camera, optical character recognition software, and text-to-speech technology. The reader takes a picture of printed text on paper---such as a memo, receipt, or restaurant menu. The text is then converted to speech. This means that the device uses a synthesized voice to speak the information. The reader includes a headphone jack for privacy.
