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.


Power on

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.
