Digital pen scanners provide many advantages to individuals from various walks of life.
A digital scanner pen scans text and transfers it to a device or computer with a technology called optical character recognition (OCR). Pen scanners can be exceptionally helpful to those students who must take an abundance of notes or read volumes of text. This pen that scans text to the computer has the ability to scan, store, and transfer chosen passages, numbers, small images, and even hand-written script. Some of these technological advancements have the ability to translate text into different languages. For those who are learning a second language or are traveling abroad, this feature can be invaluable.
Who Can Benefit from a Pen Scanner
A number of pen scanners have the ability to read text back to the user. This feature can be a priceless tool for individuals with learning disabilities, like dyslexia, those who are visually impaired and developing readers. In fact, it has been found that vocabulary pronunciation and range, as well as reading comprehension, can be improved with the use of a pen scanner.
There are numerous advantages to having a pen that directly scans text to a computer. Some of these advantages include:
- Digital scanner pens read scanned text out loud through the included speaker or for added privacy a microphone can be used. For those who require reading assistance, their independence increases when using a pen reader.
- Once a word is scanned by the pen, the built-in dictionary searches and speaks the word and definition out loud. Users also have the ability to search for idioms, synonyms, and syllabic word definitions.
- Words, sentences, as well as paragraphs, can be displayed on the LCD screen of the pen or computer screen. This user can then have the scanned text spoken in either the original or a translated language.
- Pens that can read and scan text have the ability to store that text for later playback. This playback varies with each pen. Most have USB connectivity to easily transfer text to a computer or other device.
