Bringing Portability to Scanning and Reading
The PEARL™ brings blind and low vision users instant portable access to
printed material with an array of human-sounding voices. The folding camera
deploys in seconds to connect to your PC and snap a picture of your reading
Customize your viewing:
With so many features for those with macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other causes of low vision, you can tailor the appearance of
text on your screen (font style, size, character spacing, and color), view with
split-screen and compare your original document and OCR conversion results, use
Masking and Word Spotlighting to help you follow text as it is read, and more.
Lightning Fast OCR:
The PEARL expands the features of OpenBook 9.0 to provide instant OCR.
Press a keystroke to snap a picture, and hear your book read back to you with
Eloquence or one of the human-sounding voices from RealSpeak Solo Direct®. You
control the reading rate and voice.
Automatic Page Capture
In automatic mode, the PEARL senses motion, so it knows to snap an image
whenever you turn a page. Place your paperback novel sideways, and the PEARL
will snap two pages at a time and maintain the pagination. For larger books, you
can capture even pages first. Flip the book over to capture the odd pages. You
can keep turning pages and capturing images while OpenBook reads.
Read All Kinds of Documents
Use the PEARL to read books, newspapers, magazines, and bills. OpenBook
identifies columns and places them in logical reading order. Change the language
setting to read foreign language documents with native speaker voices.
Use as a video
Use the PEARL to show a live video image on your PC. Magnify your document
and navigate with the virtual XY table from the keyboard.
The PEARL works in most room lighting. If the room is dark, simply turn on
the built-in LED lighting. You can even write under the camera in a magnified
Reformat Text for Easier Reading
Once your page has been captured, you have multiple options for viewing the
information. You can display the text so that it wraps on the screen, enlarge
the font, change the font style, and change the foreground and background
colors. Have the individual words spotlighted as they are spoken.
