The Eye-Pal SOLO camera based reading and magnifying device
Eye-Pal SOLO
Our Price: $1,849.00

The Eye-Pal SOLO is a camera-based reading and magnifying device. Accurate, fast and easy to use, SOLO has provided near instant access to print to thousands of seniors. This stand-alone device requires no special training and ready to be used right out of the box. Connect it to an external monitor or home TV to view pictures, magnified text or to write a check. Weighing in about 6.5 pounds it can travel with you anywhere. The Eye-Pal SOLO reads aloud almost anything printed; books, newspapers, magazines, mail, and cookbooks, quickly and easily. It’s so simple to use that anyone, from an 80 year old blind grandmother to her three year old granddaughter, can use it right out of the box. We developed the Eye-Pal SOLO to enable anyone who is blind or visually-challenged to easily "read" the content of any printed text by listening. Take SOLO out of the box, plug it in, place a document, book or newspaper on the base of the device and, within seconds, you will hear it read aloud. To read another document, simply replace the current document with a new one. The placement of the page does not matter, so you can turn your document in any direction. There are no manuals and no complicated controls; just simplicity, speed and accuracy. A 20 year old automatic coffee maker (without all electronics they install in the new ones) is as easy to use as our Eye-Pal SOLO. Do you have to pause while reading? Just wave your hand above the page. Eye-Pal SOLO is so precise and responsive that the reading will stop immediately. To resume reading, wave your hand again and Eye-Pal Solo will continue from the correct word. more info
