If you think you’ve heard and seen everything, you may be surprised when you stop by the next Tek Talk training session sponsored by the Accessible World. Here is why.
Did you know there is now a portable device that recognizes flat and solid objects through the eyes of a digital camera! Did you know there is a hand-held device that is a real computer with Windows XP and 60GB Hard Disk, slightly bigger than a palm, able to recognize objects in less than ten seconds? Did you know a device exists that can read books, magazines and newspapers of any size and complexity up to two complete pages at a time, text on boxes, bottles, cans, and medicines, as well as texts found on TVs and LCD displays? Whatever the camera frames, the device reads and can automatically adjust perspective, skew and shape of any object. It can correct the framing of the picture through voice messages such as “move the camera to the right”, “move the camera backwards” and (in the new version “turn the object 45 degrees to the right). It even has editing features, voice recognition (command and dictation) and voice recording, MP3 features, handwriting modules, bluetooth, wifi and much more. And because it has been developed specifically for the blind, visual impaired and dyslexics, it is completely accessible. Its name, you ask? SiRecognizer UMPC.
Don’t miss the demonstration of this unique product and Larry Gassman’s interview with Marco Gregnanin, C.E.O. ITEX, Rome, Italy To ask questions following the formal presentation.
