shows it speeds learning because a student can experience many more words,

Is it hard to use? If you have good dexterity, it's easy to use.
Here's a simple test. If you can highlight a line of text in a newspaper
using a highlighter pen, you will be able to use the pen. If not, this pen
will not be suitable for you. Does it really read to you? After you
complete scanning a line or word, the pen recognizes the characters and
looks up the words in its internal dictionary. It then can pronounce them
in sequence. How accurate is it? Generally 97% accurate - scanning
accuracy generally increases with practice. Can I only scan text in?
No, you can also input words using the pen's own touchscreen keyboard, so
you can also hear pronunciations & definitions of words you see that
are not on a printed page.
