Read Aloud Video Magnfier Vocatex - I read aloud

The new designed Vocatex is a Full HD video magnifier that magnifies texts and photographs with razor-sharp clarity. Combined with the built-in readout function, the Vocatex even reads out all printed texts. Ideal for enjoyable reading or readout of newspapers and magazines. Reading is no longer an effort, but relaxing.

The Vocatex is the most user-friendly readout magnifier with large easy-feel buttons. The unit is superfast. The text is read out immediately. The intelligent readout function reads out texts without interruption due to the automatic movement detection. Thus Vocatex reads texts from letters, large newspaper pages or thick books without interruption.

With the Vocatex you yourself choose to have texts read out, to read them yourself or simultaneously to read along with it, and this always with the choice of a pleasant and easily understandable voice.

Each unit is personal and custom configured. Based on your field of vision we recommend a screen of 22”, 27”, 32” or even 40". The incorporation of specific functions for the hard of hearing, photophobia, tunnel vision, macular degeneration, etc, makes every unit unique and extremely user-friendly.

A computer connection by which the Vocatex screen becomes your computer screen or split screen via the new USB 3.0 connection, makes your computer even more accessible. The large high contrast screen is extremely suitable. In combination with magnification software and split screen you have a true multimedia centre.

The Vocatex is really easy thanks to „what you see is what you get“  - WYSIWYG.

Thanks to the intelligent readout function, Vocatex reads entire pages without irritating pauses and this simply by moving the reading table and the text. When moving the reading table the new text is incorporated and the Vocatex just continues reading. Reading a newspaper article has never been so easy. You start the Vocatex. While the voice reads the text, you move the text with it. The Vocatex automatically connects it and reads the text without pauses. You can thus read thick books or large newspaper pages without interruption.
