TS1 – Digital Highlighter

C-Pen TS1 is our latest “accessory type” text scanner device. It works connected to a computer (PC/MAC). When activated, a light turns on and highlights the text – text that instantly appears by the text cursor in the application active on the computer.

TS1 requires driver software to be installed on the computer. This software is known as C-Pen TS/X.

C-Pen TS/X includes an OCR engine and a Word-like editor (TS/X Editor).

It is also possible to plug in TTS voices into C-Pen TS/X allowing all text highlighted by TS1 to be read out loud. For available voices, visit C-PEN Shop.
