About The C-Pen Reader


The C-Pen Reader pen scanner is major technological breakthrough for anyone learning English or Spanish and is a life-saver for those who suffer from reading difficulties such as dyslexia. The C-Pen Reader is a totally portable, pocket-sized device that reads text out aloud with an English or Spanish human-like digital voice. 

The in-built dictionary puts the power of Collins English Dictionary (30th Anniversary Edition Tenth edition) and the Oxford Spanish>English>Spanish Dictionary in your hands. Simply pass the nib across a word and it instantly displays the definition and reads it aloud. It is also a scanner for capturing lines of text and uploading to a PC or Mac, making it ideal for students, teachers and professionals to capture essential information.

The pen is half the size of other portable pen scanners on the market and at 50g is half the weight.  Importantly this means it can be used by a younger generation of English & Spanish learners making this learning tool suitable for children (age 6+) and adults. This is the only portable line scanner on the market that is both Mac and PC compatible. There is no software required, just connect the pen up to a computer with a USB cable and it appears as an external hard drive. Other features include a built-in voice recorder with playback.

As well as promoting Independent Reading this pen features:

  • Hear words & lines of text read aloud
  • A Collins 10th Edition Dictionary
  • An Oxford Spanish>English>Spanish Dictionary
  • Scan, store & transfer to a PC or Mac (1GB of storage & downloads to a computer like using a USB key - no software required)

C-Pens are amazing! In the world of AT, this is a tool everyone needs. Within minutes’ students and teachers are using the pens to read worksheets, vocabulary words, bus schedules and even cake mix boxes. My students love the fact that the pen is small and doesn’t make them look different. Thanks for making such as great tool.
