Full Product Description
Weighing just over 600 grams and about the size of a paperback book, the Intel Reader provides all the power of a bulky PC plus scanner in a convenient size for school, home or on the move. The Intel Reader fits easily into a schoolbag or backpack and has a sturdy magnesium case and generous battery life of up to 4 hours continuous use.
In the classroom, teachers can continue to use existing worksheets and other printed material. Students can use the Intel Reader to access course material and lesson content as it is handed out. They simply point, shoot, and quickly listen to handouts, tests and books, and the earphones allow private listening, clearly and discreetly, without disturbing others.
The Intel Reader can read back text in a variety of voices and speeds. During play back, the text is highlighted as it is read aloud, and users can have the Intel Reader pause and spell out highlighted words. It all helps students become independent learners.
The Intel Reader helps students organize and access their captured documents efficiently so they can accomplish tasks faster. With over 2GB of storage space, pupils can store up to 600 pages of captured text or over 500,000 pages of text only documents. The library feature lets students bookmark favourite documents for fast access. They can navigate within a document by word, sentence, or by page, and they can go to a specific page or jump to the beginning or the end.
The Intel Reader can store and play back a wide choice of content as well as captured text. It will play most content, including DAISY books and even text transferred from a PC, as well as MP3 or WAV music files. It can also generate audio versions of printed materials, as MP3s, that can be played on most digital music players or computers. A USB connection makes it easy to transfer files to or from a PC.
Intel® Portable Capture Station
An optional accessory, the Intel® Portable Capture Station is a sturdy stand that holds the camera in position to enable quick and convenient capture of large amounts of text. A transparent film holds books flat and the large, easy to find capture button on the base helps users quickly capture lots of pages. The stand folds into a convenient briefcase size with built-in carry handle. The Intel Reader will function without the Intel Portable Capture Station.
