You can use the IRISPen like a highlighter: slide it along any line of text to digitise it immediately! The scanned text can then be edited and translated into a variety of languages (more than 40 languages are recognised). Use the voice synthesis function to have the text read to you out loud. A very high-performance tool, especially useful in language learning or for language-impaired persons.

The IRISPen Air 7 digital pen can be of great help for tackling challenges like Assistive Technology in Special Education, Rehabilitation and Everyday Living. It can be used as a tool for inclusive education. Scan lines of printed text directly into digital text, which can be instantly translated and read out loud to you (thanks to the Text to Speech functionality).


You highlight, it types

Simply slide IRISPen™ Air over printed text or numbers from newspapers, magazines, invoices, faxes, letters or any other type of document, and the text will automatically be retyped in your computer. It doesn't matter if you use Word, Excel, or any other text editing application or web-based editor. Anywhere you can type, IRISPen™ Air can type too!

Scan any kind of document

IRISPen™ Air is made to scan text on any kind of paper document. You can use it to scan text lines in books, magazines, newspaper, letters, faxes or even documents in a binder. The digital highlighter can also be used in many situations including scanning books at the library, translating menus at the restaurant or scanning barcodes from a bank transfer slip.

Small, Wireless & easy to use

IRISPen™ Air is very compact and fits well in hand. It only weighs 9 oz. and it is about the same size as a traditional highlighter. You can easily store it in a purse or even a pencil box and carry it along wherever you go. To start scanning, simply synchronize the pen with your computer, tablet or smartphone using the Bluetooth connection. The provided software (for Mac® or Windows®) and applications (for IOS or Android® ) make it very easy to setup and use the pen in any situation.

You scan, it reads out loud and translates!

Let IRISPen™ Air do the reading for you! The digital highlighter features text-to-speech technology which turns any scanned text to audio for you to just relax and listen to.
