Aside from C-Pen Keyboard functionality, the Connect Desktop app features Text Reader and Scan to File functions. Text can be set to be read out automatically or only when prompted to.

Scanned text can also be saved to text files and retrieved at a later point in time and re-listened to. A nice feature to support learning.
