The ReadEasy Move Has Arrived

ReadEasy Move is an easy to use all-in-one portable device that reads to you.

ReadEasy Move will read practically any printed text out loud within seconds, 
in a clear human sounding voice.

Simply line up your document or book against the right hand edge of ReadEasy 
Move's case, press the "Capture" button and within a few seconds your print 
material is being read out loud to you.

Who is the ReadEasy Move For?
ReadEasy Move is for anyone who needs quick, easy and accurate access to 
printed material.

ReadEasy Move has an intuitive and tactile design that makes it an ideal 
solution for people with all levels of vision from low vision to total 

The one button operation of the ReadEasy Move makes it suitable for people of 
all ages whether you are 4 or 104!

ReadEasy Move could be the perfect reading system for you if:

  a.. You find it difficult to read with a magnifying glass. 
  b.. You would like to be more independent and be able to read your own 
documents (mail, newspapers, bills, etc.). 
  c.. You have a learning disability such as dyslexia and benefit from 
listening to text read to you out loud. 
  d.. You find reading with a video magnifier (CCTV) too difficult because you 
can't fit enough characters on the screen to read at your desired pace. 
  e.. You find the constant movement of text on a video magnifier's screen 
makes your eyes fatigued or gives you a nauseous feeling. 
  f.. You already have a reading machine but wish it was faster, more accurate 
and had more features. 
  g.. You have a degenerative eye condition and would like a system that is 
suitable both now and for the future.

ReadEasy Move features many benefits over other scanner and digital capture 
reading machines including:
