How does C-Pen products compare?
Below is a brief comparison – for details please visit our products page.
Please be aware that functionality of models that requires a connection to a host (computer/tablet/mobile) very much rely on the functions of their companion app. Visit Software for more details about the apps.
The core technology that enables text to be scanned and recognised is similar in all models – recognition performance is thus comparable between them all.
Connect and TS1 rely on a connection to a host and a companion app on that host. Other models are stand-alone. Yet, some of the stand-alone models allow connected use.
The stand-alone models have built in speech capabilities while the connected models rely on speech capabilities of the host. To have text scanned with a connected device (e.g. Connect or TS1) read out aloud, speech software and voices *must* be preinstalled on the host/computer.
