Scan N Talk shatters the myth that a computer has to speak in monotonous dreary tones. After reading, files can be saved in text or sound or printed even on Braille embossers (optional).
"Scan N Talk and our other assistive technologies open a newfound 'information super highway' for the blind and visually impaired. For those with dyslexia, this multi-sensory approach utilizing images and sounds creates a connection to the brain, improving reading," states Doug Powles, President of Colligo Corp.

"Innovations of this nature that use readily available technology to improve access to the written word, provide knowledge, freedom and power. Without these basic rights, the ability to self advocate becomes very difficult, therefore hindering independence," said Dr. Dean Stenehjem, Superintendent of the Washington State School for the Blind.
