'Talking Pen' launched at World Book Fair

India's first 'Talking Pen-Multimedia Print Reader (MPR)' was launched in Delhi by Aadarsh Pvt Ltd, one of the leading printing and publishing houses in Central India, at the World Book Fair, reports UNI.

It is a unique concept where the pen recites the written text. When the MPR pen is positioned over a book with MPR codes, it activates the pre-loaded audio files, so a reader is also able to hear the text they are reading.

This education tool will also cater to the special needs of the visually challenged population and people suffering from various levels of Dyslexia. It will also help in empowering volunteers responsible for public service education or vocational training with technological proficiency.
