Pen Scanner

Iris Pen
Pen scanners have been around for a number of years now, however, the current technology has had a positive impact on the accuracy of the pen scanners and they have improved tremendously. The pen scanner is used the same way you use a marker highlighter. Simply take the pen scanner across the text. The pen scanner will let you scan, store and transfer your printed text as well as smaller images to your computer. It's ideal for taking notes or scanning text for students that use a text reader. Many of the newer pen scanners also have synthetic voice and read the scanned text. Many teachers claim that the use of the scanner pens aids children with dyslexia.
The student can benefit tremendously from the use of scanner pens for test taking, note taking, greater access to materials, auditory support and overall productivity.
