To use the C-Pen, simply pass the nib across a word and it instantly displays the definition and reads it aloud. It is also a scanner that captures lines of text that can be uploaded to a PC or Mac. This makes it ideal for students, teachers and professionals who need to capture essential information. The C-Pen also features a in-built Collins English Dictionary (30th Anniversary Edition Tenth edition) for those needing extra assistance with word use and definitions.
The pen is half the size and weight of other portable pen scanners on the market. This means it can be suitable for children (age 6+) or adults who need a lightweight scanning option.
