The SARA CE (Scanning And Reading Appliance, Camera Edition) is the next-generation self-contained scanning and reading appliance for the blind and those with low vision. Just place a printed page under the camera, and the SARA CE instantly starts reading it to you with RealSpeak human-sounding speech. No computer experience is needed. You don’t even need to push a button to read almost any printed material – books, magazines, mail, and more. The camera automatically senses when a new page is presented and snaps an image and begins reading whenever you turn a page.
Pause reading, move forward and backward, or hear a word spelled out. Change the reading speed and volume. Select a different voice. Scan and read in one of 18 languages. Change the scanning mode to capture bound books, and save them on the 160GB hard drive or a USB thumb drive. The SARA CE talks you through each step with audible menus. There is even built-in Help and an audible onboard user manual.
Connect a monitor to access the customizable low vision features. Increase the text size. Change text and background colors. Add more space between letters, and highlight words as they are spoken.
