Cicero Text Reader will turn your computer and scanner into a reading machine, enabling you to read printed material independently and in privacy. Cicero effectively takes your computer and scanner and turns them into a reading machine for people with a visual impairment. Printed text documents are placed on the scanner and can then be translated into speech, Braille or simply held as a text document which can be adjusted, saved, edited and printed out.
Whether at home or in the work environment, this means that your privacy does not have to be compromised: you can read letters however and whenever you choose without relying on other people. Independence is maintained and working practices remain unaffected.
Cicero works with Microsoft Windows 98, Me, NT 4.0, 2000 & XP, and can be installed on laptops and home PCs. The only special equipment needed is a Windows soundcard and a twain compatible scanner.
