Intel Reader and Dyslexia

Dyslexic students around the country are using the Intel® Reader to help them with printed text and to help complete homework efficiently and with confidence. Students at California’s Esther B. Clark School had a chance to work with the Intel Reader independently and incorporate it into their classroom activities.

Check out Ben, a 15 year-old Clark student, as he demonstrates the Intel Reader and the Intel® Portable Capture Station. Our favorite part of this video comes at the 1:15 mark-- Ben talks about loving the pre-programmed sample of Alice in Wonderland so much that he checked the book out from the library. Ben is a great example of a student who has used the Intel Reader and discovered something rare for many with dyslexia: reading for pleasure.

But judge for yourself get a hold of an Intel Reader and try it for yourself. Let us know how you find it; good, bad or indifferent.
