No computer experience is necessary to operate this scanner/reader. Simply place a printed page under the camera, and the SARA CE instantly starts reading it to you with human-sounding speech. You don't even need to push a button - the camera automatically senses when a new page is presented. The SARA CE talks you through each step with audible menus. For your convenience, there is also built-in Help and an audible onboard user manual. You can connect a monitor to access the customizable low vision features -- increase the text size, change text and background colors, add space between letters, and highlight words as they are spoken. The SARA CE supports scanning and reading in 18 languages and additional dialects. You can save documents on the 160 GB hard drive or on your own USB thumb drive. Bonus: you can read any of the 222 classic novels that come already installed!
