Today’s Assistive Technology Spotlight is the ReaderPen by C-Pen.

This extremely portable device gives you the ability to scan text and have the words read right back to you. The pen also doubles as a dictionary that allows you to define scanned words in an instant.

ReaderPen also features a voice recorder and allows you to store scanned text.

Everything is built-in and there is no need or requirement for an internet connection!
