How does Scan-A-Word & SCAN-A-PAGE work?

For SCAN-A-WORD the student simply passes the wand scanner over the text being read. The words are then displayed on the computer monitor and spoken out loud in a clear natural sounding voice. Then with the click of a button you can highlight any words on the screen to hear them spoken through the speakers or headphones. Scan-A-Word recognized 100 characters per second and reads words, phrases, and whole pages.  It is ideal for students who need only small reading assistance for individual words or phrases out of books.  It is also portable and works with all notebook computers.

SCAN-A-PAGE operates the same way only it scans in a full page document. With our easy one button operation full pages of text are quickly scanned into your computer where you can hear them read back to you out loud.

Software: Our text to speech and writing assistance software comes in different models depending on your educational needs.  You can also utilize an animated character (option) that speaks the words that appear in a balloon above the character as the words are spoken.  Or with certain models the text will be highlighted in yellow as they are spoken. In addition, you're given the choice of predetermined voices ... young or old, male or female. You can also adjustment the volume, speed, and pitch of the voice.

Can BrightEye systems read any text and numbers out-loud?

Yes, BrightEye Systems specialized software can read out loud any text that is on your computer screen. Even the Internet, Email and other application. Many teachers create reading assignments that are either already on the computer or utilize the Internet. For example they could assign a list of words to look up at and ask the student to be able to read all the definitions. A student at home could hear their email read out loud or even a composition they just wrote in order to listen for possible errors in spelling or grammar.
