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 the most popular Braille displays from Freedom Scientific, Optelec, and Handytech. Eye-Pal may be purchased for use with a PC or Mac 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. Text can be saved as a text file for future editing. With the press of a single key, Eye-Pal will describe a page layout as a sighted person sees it. You can instantly read text placed under the camera using a Braille program. Eye-Pal’s patented motion detector can scan up to 20 pages per minute in a bound book. Just turn a page in your book and wait for the shutter sound.
