GW Micro, Inc. Announces ReadEasy+!

GW Micro is proud to announce the ReadEasy+, a stand-alone digital capture reading system specifically designed for the blind and visually impaired.

The ReadEasy+ is compact, stylish, light-weight, and easy-to-use. The ReadEasy+ has an intuitive user interface consisting of only 6 buttons making it the ideal reading solution for blind or visually impaired people of all ages, whether they are 4 or 104.

“This system has been designed for high accuracy and speed, but simple for anyone to use,” said Dan Weirich, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for GW Micro.

According to Weirich, a blind or visually impaired person can read any printed text by simply placing the text next to the ReadEasy+ and pressing a button. The system takes a picture and then begins reading the text in a clear, human-sounding voice within a matter of seconds. The buttons located on the ReadEasy+ are tactile, making it easy to use for a visually impaired user with any level of vision.

ReadEasy+ customers can add a Keypad Feature Pack to enable more advanced functionality to the ReadEasy+, such as the ability to save files to a USB flash drive. Individuals with Low vision can obtain additional benefits from using the ReadEasy+ LV, which can connect to a computer monitor to magnify text in addition to reading it. Add the optional Touch Screen Feature Pack (touchscreen monitor sold separately) and instantly turn the ReadEasy+ LV into the first-ever reading system that supports multi-touch gestures much like those used on the iPhone and iPad! Low vision users can quickly move around a document, adjust magnification and start reading with the touch of their fingertips!

For customers who need access to documents in foreign languages, such as Spanish, French, German, Italian, and others; additional languages can be easily added to the ReadEasy+. The ReadEasy+ is the first stand-alone reading machine that can recognize and read multiple languages automatically (additional languages sold separately).

The ReadEasy+ and ReadEasy+ LV will begin shipping soon and customers can begin placing their orders today. Contact GW Micro or your local GW Micro dealer regarding sales within the U.S. for more information. You may call GW Micro at (260) 489-3671 or contact GW Micro via email at , or learn about the ReadEasy+ on the web at ReadEasy+ Information.
