Adult illiteracy comes with social stigmas that prevent many people from trying to learn how to read. The abcDARIAN is designed to discreetly help them achieve their goals. The two-sided, touch enabled device is transparent. You skim over written matter and it phonetically reads it out into an earpiece. It comes with a stylus but the most unique feature is the ability to slowdown speech feedback, just in case it’s reading too fast.
