The WizCom SuperPen is a hand-held scanner and translator. The product embodies the functionalities of both WizCom's second-generation products, QuicktionaryII and QuickLink.
The Pen also now includes a "Trainer" - The trainer fits onto the end of the pen and assists with scanning for the first time.
Scan and Translate: The SuperPen comes with over 30 downloadable language dictionaries - absolutely free! These enable users to scan full lines of text, receive instantaneous word-by-word translation and hear scanned English words pronounced aloud. By changing dictionaries as needed, users easily become fluent anywhere in the world. Integrated Text-to-Speech technology enables users to pronounce new English words with confidence. These and other SuperPen Voice features have made this product the reading tool of choice for students and travellers alike.
Scan, Store and Transfer: This function enables users, on the go, to capture essential printed data anytime, anywhere. The product can store over 1,000 pages of printed text, to be transferred to a PC, PDA or any Windows application at leisure. Users working with their computer can scan printed text directly to an archive cursor point. Collected data can be transferred to any Windows based applications seamlessly.
