Poet Compact 2 - The genuinely easy to use reading machine

When designing the Poet Compact 2 we focused on its main function: reading. This slender all-in-one reading machine can read any kind of printed matter with just the press of a button. There is no need to study lengthy manuals and you do not need to have any prior knowledge of computers to operate the Poet Compact 2. The built-in stereo loudspeakers directed towards the listener ensure a sound that is loud and clear. The controls are self explanatory, in tactile shape and have sensible pressing feedback as well as touch tones. Try it yourself - you'll be convinced of how easy it is to operate.
