Desktop Video Magnifier with OCR and Speech
Topaz magnifier helping with bank statementThe TOPAZ OCR combines video magnification and text-to-speech features into a single desktop video magnifier. The high-definition camera produces a clear picture with sharp images and crisp text. This lets you use a lower magnification to maximize the amount of information displayed on the screen. It also reduces the need to move the XY table as much when reading text, looking at pictures, or working on crafts and other projects. The TOPAZ also includes an OCR camera.
