Below is a brief comparison - for details please visit our products page. Please be aware that functionality of models that requires a connection to a host (computer/tablet/mobile) very much rely on the functions of their companion app. Visit Software for more details about the apps.
The core technology that enables text to be scanned and recognised is similar in all models - recognition performance is thus comparable between them all.
Connect and TS1 rely on a connection to a host and a companion app on that host. Other models are stand-alone. Yet, some of the stand-alone models allow connected use.
ReadePen and ReaderPen Secure have embedded monolingual dictionaries supporting understanding and literacy.
LingoPen has embedded bi-lingual dictionaries useful for EAL and language learning.
Connect Desktop app has access to both monolingual and bi-lingual dictionaries via Connect Cloud (free trial/paid feature).
All models can be used to scan word into any third party digital dictionary.
The stand-alone models have built in speech capabilities while the connected models rely on speech capabilities of the host. To have text scanned with a connected device (e.g. Connect or TS1) read out aloud, speech software and voices *must* be preinstalled on the host/computer.
