Tf1e IRlspen~ Express 7 is a fun-featured text recogn,tiC: pen scanner. r. It works just like a high lighter! Simp'Y Slide the digital pen over printed information and the text wi" instantly appear on }lour computer screen. This is what you can expect when you slide your IRISPen Express 7 for the first time over the advertisement which made you buy this digital highlighter that types what you scan. Although I gave only two star, I expect that my new pen scanner is worth three or four stars when I learn to use it and even five stars when I learn to use it very well. IRISPen Express 7 clearly saves some time even now although a bit Soviet style for the time being. I had problems with the installation of my Pen Scanner and based on the messages I read in the Internet, I'm not the only one. Basically the installation of the software should be very easy. You simply insert the CD-ROM in your computer and the installation takes place almost automatically. After the installation of the software, you activate it with the ID number as you have done probably million times before. I sent a request for technical support to IRISLink but now one month later I'm still waiting for their reply. For this reason I turned to a small computer shop which has helped me before. When I went back the same afternoon to collect my laptop and scanner, they said that they had to invite an outside expert who had worked for two hours with the installation before he succeeded. This exercise costed me about 25% of what I had paid for the pen scanner.
