19 Now with Full Color Scanning and Talking Word Prediction If you find reading difficult, Scan and Read Pro will make reading easy and enjoyable. Scan and Read Pro changes printed text into understandable sound. The program helps you in reading and comprehension by highlighting each word as it's read aloud. Scan and Read Pro's voice can also be turned off if you prefer to focus on the visual input only. Scan & Read Pro offers some unique and useful features such as supporting up to 12 different languages, advanced settings making customization easy, and support for automatic document feeders available on high-end scanners. Most voice synthesizers will read parts of words producing a somewhat choppy reading due to the fact that when a word is broken or hyphened across multiple lines, it does not produce continuous speech as it reads each word segment separately. Scan & Read Pro has a special technique for de-hyphenating words so that any speech syntheses will produce smooth vocalization. The E-Text Reader is designed to be a reading tool. You can use it for opening up and reading existing documents in your computer or you can cut and paste from any program on your computer. You can even insert pictures into the text. It is an “easy to use” reader that gives you the ability to change voices, read at any speed, and even allows you to make notes into the document you are reading. The E-Text Reader is designed to help those who have trouble reading or comprehending the printed word. There are thousands of literature titles now available in electronic format. This is great, but if you have trouble reading, electronic formats will be just as difficult to read as hardcopy. To solve this problem, we developed the E-Text Reader. This reader will read (using digital voices) the electronic version of books (“E-Books, or E-Text”) to you. The E-Text Reader can read any document in Standard Text, MS Word, RTF (“Rich Text Format”) and HTML formats. Main Menu

67 www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/tech/tech14.shtm – The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, is urging kids to add one more lesson to the list: Don’t post information about yourself online that you don’t want the whole world to know. The Internet is the world’s biggest information exchange: many more people could see your information than you intend, including your parents, your teachers, your employer, the police — and strangers, some of whom could be dangerous. – Social networking sites have added a new factor to the “friends of friends” equation. By providing information about yourself and using blogs, chat rooms, email, or instant messaging, you can communicate, either within a limited community, or with the world at large. But while the sites can increase your circle of friends, they also can increase your exposure to people who have less-than-friendly intentions. You’ve heard the stories about people who were stalked by someone they met online, had their identity stolen, or had their computer hacked. www.EDPubs.ed.gov – Order Free U.S. Department Of Education Publications www.dol.gov/odep/pubs/publicat.htm A World In Which People With Disabilities Have Unlimited Employment Opportunities www.linkedin.com – Over 50 million professionals use LinkedIn to exchange information, ideas and opportunities – Stay informed about your contacts and industry – Find the people & knowledge you need to achieve your goals – Control your professional identity online Online Main Menu

It can run its own specific applications as well as those developed originally for the iPhone. Without modification, it will only run programs approved by Apple and distributed via its online store.iPod TouchiPhone [14]iOS 4modification online store Like iPhone and iPod Touch, the iPad is controlled by a multitouch display sensitive to up to eleven fingers [15] — a break from most previous tablet computers, which used a pressure-triggered stylus.
