TAFE’s and community colleges across Australia use both the ReaderPen and the ExamReader. Many students that move into technical and further education have reading difficulties such as dyslexia and rely on assistive technology. The ReaderPen converts text to speech and allows the student to read independently, promoting confidence and improving comprehension. Our discreet and portable technology ensures users receive reading support without disrupting the class or asking for help from teaching staff.

The ReaderPen has great built-in features that makes using the pen very easy. Various settings allow the user to tailor the playback to meet their own personal needs. The built-in dictionaries provide easy-to-access definitions. Users are able to store scanned text to review later. Teachers are also able to assign individual learning objectives using the Voice Recorder function. They can even record student progress checks and transfer the files to their computer. In addition to English, the ReaderPen also reads Spanish and French.
