This is very clever technology. Take a photo of a piece of text with your mobile phone, then have it read out loud to you. If you're not sure what a word means, just pause when the yellow scanning highlighter gets to it, then click on an icon to have the dictionary definition pop up and read out.
It’s very useful for people who may struggle with text - whether due to a learning difficulty such as dyslexia, sight problems or perhaps being new to English. It is a tool designed to sit in your pocket, ready to be pulled out when you get stuck, whether reading a menu, a paragraph from a newspaper, a set of instructions or text on a web page or email.
