Tek Talk is very pleased to welcome Freedom Scientific to discuss and
demonstrate the new SARA reading device along with the magic for our low
vision persons. Dusty Voorhees will be the Presenter and we welcome him.
Let us see what he has to say about the above products.
SARAT 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. The SARA CE is simple to use. Just place a
printed page under the camera, and the SARA CE instantly starts reading it
to you with RealSpeak SoloT 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. Now you can have lightning fast optical
character recognition (OCR), instant reading, low vision features, and
Braille reading, all in a single stand-alone system.
