Intel rolls out an E-reader, aimed at those who find it hard to read
This cool e-reader by Intel knows its worth, especially since it is being directed at such a noble cause. The E-reader is directed towards whose with reading disabilities and dyslexics. This idea has been inspired by Ben Foss, who works as a researcher for the company and suffers from dyslexia. He requires text to be read to him. The reader is capable of digitizing printed text and reading it aloud to those who use it.
The audio files thus generated can be converted to MP3 format and sent across. However, there is an issue of speed that Intel are working on. A single page takes about 30 seconds to be processed. It will be priced at $1,499 and is available in the US.
