Cell Phone that Reads for the Blind

September 7, 2008 12:26 PM | Gadgets | Technology | Comments (0)

knfb Reading Technology, Inc. have developed software that puts the functionality of a reading machine into a multifunction cell phone.

The Mobile Reader products, initially reported by us last January, can be activated and ready to use with the touch of a single button on the cell phone.

The user takes a photo of the print to be read and the character recognition software in conjunction with high quality text-to-speech will read the contents of the document aloud. At the same time, it can display the print on the phone’s built-in screen and highlight each word as it is spoken.

See the following videos of the Cell phone reading machine:

The Mobile Reader Product Line:

  • Reads most printed documents, from letters and memos to pages in a book
  • Reads address labels and package information and instructions

  • Displays each sentence visually and highlights each word as it is read
  • Stores thousands of pages using easily obtainable flash memory
  • Transfers text files to and from computers or Braille note takers
  • Adjusts reading speed to suit user’s preference.
In addition, with the use of a screen reader, the user can access the other functions of the phone device including making and receiving phone calls, personal information management such as contacts, calendar, etc. Also contains ability to run accessible GPS programs, access to Adobe PDF files, voice recorder, music player and much more.
