First use (DictionaryPen)
DictionaryPen is a self-contained product that works both stand-alone and connected to a computer.
It can be used to scan and store text, look up words definition in dictionaries, listen to word pronunciations, and record voice memos.
Additionally, it can double as USB disk and keyboard.
But before getting started, read and watch below.
Make sure the product is charged. Press the On/Off button for three seconds to power on ReaderPen (boot sequence takes about 10 seconds).
Select whether to use the product with left or right hand. Enter SettingsLeft/Right-Handed to select. Press OK to confirm and then Back to get back to Main menu.
Exam Lock (ReaderPen)
To enable use of ReaderPen in tests, it is possible to “lock down” some all but Texter Reader function. Doing this disables the accesss to dictionaries or any stored content (text and audio files).
Exam Lock is protected by a PIN code to prohibit the student to unlock during the test. The same PIN is used to unlock to normal mode.
ReaderPen and DictionaryPen both features a voice memo function (Recorder) allowing recording of e.g. audio to-do lists or thoughts about a specific subject discussed in class.
It is possible to set audio quality and format, and also possible to upload the audio files to a computer.
ReaderPen and DictionaryPen both support connection to a USB Host (i.e. Windows PC, MAC, Linux computer, etc.).
Three modes of connection is supported.
This mode connects the pen as a USB drive to the computer making it possible to copy files (e.g. text files, voice recordings or any other file) between the pen and the computer.
NOTE: files copied TO the pen can NOT be viewed on the pen.
This mode connects the pen as a USB keyboard to the computer enabling text to be scanned directly from paper to the computer (e.g. into a Word document). No software is required to be installed on the computer, but the scan language selected MUST be same as the keyboard language setting on the computer.
This mode disables all USB data and only charges the battery.
DictionaryPen features high-quality dictionaries from Harper Collins and Oxford, making it easy to swiftly look up the meaning of a word.
Subject to settings (check the video for details) it is possible to listen to the pronunciation of the scanned word.
The list of dictionaries are subject to firmware version but current firmware includes
Enter Dictionary mode, scan one or more words, listen to the selected being pronounced, and experience instant lookup in the pre-selected dictionary.
Scan to File (DictionaryPen)
Scan to File is a function allowing the user to capture notes, quotes, or excerpts from books and papers. The text is stored in txt files in the built-in memory and can be re-accessed at any time.
It is also possible to select single words and have them looked up in the embedded dictionaries.
Finally the files can be uploaded to a computer.
