Plustek Technology Inc., a manufacturer of consumer, professional, and office imaging devices, announced the BookReader. The Plustek BookReader will convert printed text into high quality speech with a lifelike voice, which can then be saved in MP3 format for future access. The BookReader comes with Optical Character Recognition (OCR), and Text to Speech (TTS) software, to copy and "read" the documents scanned into the BookReader. The user places a book or document on the screen and at the press of a button, the book is scanned for reading pleasure. The BookReader also comes with bundled software.
