Easy-Read Pen is one product of E-reading pens, a pen-shaped book reader onto which audio from specific books can be downloaded. It reads aloud corresponding Chinese and/or English words, phrases, paragraphs, or dialogues when scanned across compatible images or texts of paper books, a new technique of Point and Read.
Using the latest recognition technology to recognize words, E-reading pen is an easy and handy tool for children and parents who want to learn Chinese as a second language, or anyone who wants to improve his vocabulary or read more than text books in Chinese and/or English.
Users can use E-reading pen independently to learn Chinese pronunciation and intonations, recognize individual characters and later develop a sense of full reading.
They can take the pen and books anywhere with them and learn on the go.
E-reading pen offers an alternative to either traditional audiobooks (e.g. CD, VCD, DVD, MP3 and etc) or live person reading aloud. It helps children learn Chinese on an interactive level, making for a more interesting and enjoyable learning experience. Please see E-reading pen: an interactive tool to learn Chinese for more details.
