The Vocatex is the most user-friendly readout magnifier with large easy-feel buttons. The unit is superfast. The text is read out immediately. The intelligent readout function reads out texts without interruption due to the automatic movement detection. Thus Vocatex reads texts from letters, large newspaper pages or thick books without interruption.
With the Vocatex you yourself choose to have texts read out, to read them yourself or simultaneously to read along with it, and this always with the choice of a pleasant and easily understandable voice.
Each unit is personal and custom configured. Based on your field of vision we recommend a screen of 22”, 27”, 32” or even 40”. The incorporation of specific functions for the hard of hearing, photophobia, tunnel vision, macular degeneration, etc, makes every unit unique and extremely user-friendly.
A computer connection by which the Vocatex screen becomes your computer screen, makes your computer even more accessible. The large high contrast screen is extremely suitable. In combination with a screen magnifier and split screen you have a true multimedia centre.
I read myself
The Vocatex has a Full HD 1080p camera which delivers a high contrast and super clear image. The picture is extremely stable and steady, which provides an optimum reading experience. In addition to the higher picture quality, the magnifier has an extrawide viewing angle of 24 cm to read page-wide. Whether you now read, look at photos, write or put something together yourself, there is always an eye for detail and an overview on a large screen according to choice.
The magnifier has unique high contrast settings that make the text extra large and readable. Poorly printed texts present no problem with the background suppressor.
The Vocatex reads ALOUD – Text to Speech (TTS)
The Vocatex is a readout magnifier. The combination of screen magnifier and readout system makes reading pleasant. Having texts read out is a new way that feels natural. With the Vocatex you select the text on the screen yourself. A red rectangle around the word follows the text. So you know the reading position and you maintain the overview on the page.
Simple and relaxing
The readout function is a valuable asset for every visually impaired person. The days of constantly guessing letters and words and continually moving the reading platform are over. With Vocatex you select large text blocks on the screen and the readout starts with the push of a button.
Thanks to the intelligent readout function, Vocatex reads entire pages without irritating pauses and this simply by moving the reading table and the text. When moving the reading table the new text is incorporated and the Vocatex just continues reading. Reading a newspaper article has never been so easy. You start the Vocatex. While the voice reads the text, you move the text with it. The Vocatex automatically connects it and reads the text without pauses. You can thus read thick large newspaper pages without interruption.
The Vocatex is unique by preserving an overview. The unit always shows the real-time video picture and you have full control. The layout of titles, columns and photographs is always preserved. Due to the reading frame and the progress indicator you very clearly know what the unit is reading. The Vocatex is really easy thanks to „what you see is what you get“ – WYSIWYG.
Languages and voices
The Vocatex has a wide range of high-quality voices. A choice of male or female voices makes listening really pleasant. You will certainly find the right voice. The Vocatex reads out in multiple languages, including Arabic and Hebrew.
Read along with the news ticker
The new news ticker enables you to read text with speech support. While the Vocatex reads out you see the words enlarged on the screen. This automatic reader is so optimised that you only look at one point on the screen where the words pass by. You no longer have to move your eyes, all words always come within your field of vision. This automatic reader makes reading super simple for the visually impaired with a narrow field of vision. The text is optimized with the Tiresias font, specially developped for visually impaired readers by the RNIB.
Your field of vision determines the size of the screen
A screen recommendation always begins with your field of vision. After all your field of vision determines the size of the screen. We aim to utilise all your remaining vision. With the right screen you read more comfortably, faster and you have more of an overview. The Vocatex gives you a choice of screens of 22”, 27”, 32” and even 40”.
The visually impaired with macular degeneration predominantly have a wide field of view and it is best for them to choose a large screen of 32” or even 40”. People with a narrow field of vision such as Retinitis Pigmentosa can choose both a large and a small screen.
