OCR and Text to Speech

Use Blaze ET to OCR capture a menu, magazine article, library book, and more – all at the touch of a single button. The built-in auto-focus camera ensures a high-quality image for accurate OCR and text-to-speech.

Intuitive to Use

Easy to find buttons for music, radio, books, OCR and recording give single touch access to each of these popular features. A familiar numeric keypad allows for more advance marking and navigation of files, and easy access controls on the side of the unit allow users to adjust pitch, rate and volume on the fly.

The Blaze ET can read and play a large variety of files, including DAISY, TXT, BRL, MP3, MP4, and so many more. Listen to the radio as you go and record in high-quality audio from the internal microphone. It also works with an external microphone or stereo line-in.
