Thursday, November 12, 2009

Intel has come up with innovational gadget that is worthfull for the people who are visually challenged or reading-related disabilities. Earlier Amazon Kindle was a gadget which stormed into the market as a best Ebook reader. But now Intel has taken this to new level.

The New intel reader has an digital camera combined with an Intel Atom processor, the Intel Reader allows users to photograph printed text and then listen to the words read aloud by a computer-generated voice.

This has been developed by Intel’s Digital Health Group (the original concept came from an Intel researcher with dyslexia), the new reader costs a steep $1,500.

Intel on its website says that, Intel Corporation has announced the Intel® Reader, a mobile handheld device designed to increase independence for people who have trouble reading standard print. The Intel Reader can assist the estimated 55 million people in the U.S. who have dyslexia or other specific learning disabilities, or have vision problems such as low-vision or blindness, which makes reading printed words difficult or impossible. The Intel Reader, about the size of a paperback book, converts printed text to digital text, and then reads it aloud to the user. Its unique design combines a high-resolution camera with the power of an Intel® Atom™ processor, allowing users to point, shoot and listen to printed text.
