Poet Compact 2+ The 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. The controls are self explanatory, in tactile shape and have sensible pressing feedback as well as touch tones. With only 3 buttons and a menu keypad you have full control over the functionality.

Der Poet Compact 2+ liest Ihnen gedruckte Texte vor.Bei Bedarf können Sie das Vorlesen stoppen.Über das intuitive Bedien Tastenfeld bewegen Sie sich durch das Menü.Die gedruckte Textvorlage wird auf den Scanner gelegt.
