Optelec ClearReader+ Basic Standalone Text-to-Speech Device

Optelec’s ClearReader+ Basic is a standalone scanner that reads aloud any printed text.  It allows you to read instantly, whether at home, at school, or at work.  Simply place your reading material below the camera, press a button, and in a few seconds, you’ll hear the text read aloud in your preferred voice and language.

Unlike text-to-speech software, it does not require a computer, nor does it require any computer skills to operate.

Text to speech device that is simple to use

We believe that adaptive technology should be easy-to-use, without unnecessary bells and whistles.  The ClearReader+ Basic hits the mark with its intuitive design and buttons that are easily operated and distinguished by touch.

Personalize the ClearReader to your preferences

Choose among 59 available high-quality, natural-sounding male and female voices, which can be matched to one of 31 different languages, depending on the language of your text.

Please note, the ClearReader+ Basic does not integrate a battery. If you are looking for a portable scan and read device to use anywhere in your home, click here to go to the product page of the ClearReader+.
