With its large 10” screen, customizable features and intuitive operation, the Compact 10 HD offers all benefits of a desktop video magnifier, but in a much smaller, foldable, and portable design. With the Compact 10 HD Speech, users can even listen to full-page text as it is read aloud!
(Barendrecht, the Netherlands – October 31, 2019) Optelec today introduced not just one, but two new products: the Compact 10 HD and the Compact 10 HD Speech. They are the ideal solution to magnify and read newspapers, letters, and magazines. But that’s not all. Their unique swing-out arm opens a whole new range of possibilities. With the arm unfolded, users can easily look at photos, view medicine packaging, and even read round cans, without being restricted in their movements. The arm also allows users to write their signature and finish crossword puzzles.
The Optelec Compact 10 HD Speech offers additional Text-to-Speech functionalities. This allows users to capture a document and let the Compact 10 HD Speech read the captured text to them - whether it’s a short piece of text or a full-page magazine article. The convenient indicator at the base of the Compact 10 HD Speech shows exactly where to place the document. Just place the document, take a snapshot, and relax while Compact 10 HD Speech reads the document aloud.
The Compact 10 HD and the Compact 10 HD Speech instantly power on, just like any smartphone. Thanks to this incredibly short start-up time, users will not waste any time and can start reading immediately. The Compact 10 HD and the Compact 10 HD Speech have a large, High Definition 10” touch screen. This allows users to fit more text on the screen for maximum overview. With more words on the screen simultaneously, reading becomes easier, and users will have a better understanding of the text – even in high magnification.
The Compact 10 HD and the Compact 10 HD Speech are the latest additions to the Optelec Compact HD family of handheld video magnifiers.
