Intel Corp.'s Digital Health Group has introduced a handheld product to convert printed text to digital text, then read it aloud to the user.

The Intel Reader is designed for persons with dyslexia, other learning disabilities or impaired vision, according to the Santa Clara, Calif.-based vendor. The reader includes a high-resolution camera to point and shoot text, and a processor to convert and read the text.

The reader can be used with a Portable Capture Station that eases capturing large amounts of data from a chapter or entire book. More information is available at
