Benefit: Scanning and Reading
Age / Grade Level:
All ages

Standalone
Training Availability: Yes (click here for more details)

For those with low vision and little to no computer experience the SARA is the solution for reading small type. Right out of the box, you can place a book on the SARA, press a button to scan your reading material, and have it read back to you. Set the SARA to read continuously, or listen line by line or word by word. If you don't understand a word, have it spelled out. Pause when you need to, rewind, and fast forward. The tactile buttons are large, colorful, and easy to reach and identify.

The blind and deaf-blind have the additional option of built-in braille support. Just connect one of our portable braille displays — such as a Focus or PAC Mate™ Braille Display — to the USB port of the SARA, and any scanned document can be read in braille.
