Freedom Scientific’s Popular SARA Adds Camera Edition

Instant Scanning and Reading with the SARA CE

(St. Petersburg, Florida – November 15, 2010) - Freedom Scientific today announced

the SARA CE (Scanning And Reading Appliance Camera Edition), the next-generation

self-contained scanning and reading appliance for the blind and those with low vision.

The SARA CE is simple to use. Just place a printed page under the camera, and the

SARA CE instantly starts reading with human-sounding speech. No computer experience

is needed. You don’t even need to push a button to read almost any printed material –

books, magazines, mail, and more. The camera automatically senses when a new page

is presented.

A built-in keypad with brightly colored tactile keys provides access to a wealth of

additional features. Pause reading, move forward and backward, or hear a word spelled

out. Change the reading speed and volume. Select a different voice. Scan and read in

one of 18 languages. Change the scanning mode to capture bound books, and save

them on the hard drive or a USB thumb drive. Read one of the 222 classic novels that

come already installed. The SARA CE talks you through each step with audible menus.

There is even built-in help and an audible onboard user manual.

Connect a monitor to access the customizable low vision features, and you can increase

the text size, change text and background colors, add more space between letters, and

highlight words as they are spoken.

“People have been using our scanner-based SARA model for years in a wide range of

public settings, such as libraries and classrooms, as well as in their homes,” says Dusty

Voorhees, Senior Product Manager at Freedom Scientific. “The new Camera Edition

brings these users enhanced productivity, with rapid OCR and greater ease of use, while

retaining the features they have come to appreciate.?

Special Introductory Price

The new SARA CE is priced at $2,395, with a two-year warranty. Freedom Scientific is

accepting orders now through March 31, 2011 at the special introductory price of $1,895.

Deliveries will start in December.
