Ideal Digital Device

While the one version of the reader is a low cost, analog option, a digital version offers some advantages.

The “digital” design uses a lens and built-in digital sensor on the back of the device to capture the external or environmental text and translate it to enlarged text on the front digital display screen.

Similar to the “analog” version, the “digital” device also converts captured text to audio, with the option to project the audio through a speaker. Unlike the “analog” device, the “digital” version offers the option for the user to “read to self” via bluetooth.
Low-Cost Analog Device

The low cost “analog” option relies on a set of magnifying lenses to enlarge text. 

An opening on the side of the device allows the magnifying lenses to be swapped for varied strengths.

Like the “digital” option, the “analog” device contains digital sensors to “read“ the text. As the built-in back sensor processes the text, it converts the print to audio, which is projected via built-in speaker or through the headphone jack.
