Great gadget for Dyslexics!!!
on 16 May 2016
I brought the C-Pen Reader for my dyslexic son to use during his first year at secondary school. He was a little unsure at first weather or not to take it into a classroom environment where he'd be using it surrounded by his peers. However, once he'd worked out how easy the controls are to use and how discreet it is, it's now a permanent and essential piece of equipment in his school bag.
As the other reviewers have stated, it will read single words along with full sentences and if forgotten, it'll hold previous scanned words in its memory. It comes with a protective case and headphones, although if he wishes not to use them, he can adjust the sound of the 'female voice/reader' so not to interfere with lessons. It is very comfortable to hold and the colour allows it to camouflage itself amongst other essentials and it will fit neatly into a pencil case. I've also looked on-line and seen that he could download other languages to its memory (although please check with the website first as how easy this is I don't know as his is still in English).
The only downsize for me was the price when I was considering buying it but now after taking the plunge and seeing how it's helped him transition from primary school, it's well worth every penny I paid. The purchase has given him piece of mind and he now has his C-Pen to rely upon instead of the awkward embarrassment or time consuming technic of stopping to ask friends or teachers what the text in books or work sheets say.
