C-Pen Reader Pen Review
I have just purchased this pen for my 9 and 11 year old dyslexic boys. The c-pen reader is a great piece of technology that helps anyone with reading difficulties. It’s a small modern, portable pocket size device that reads text out loud. It has a built in dictionary which is great for when you come across a word that you don’t know the meaning of. You just scan the word and it displays the definition and reads it out loud. You can also scan lines of text and up load to a PC or Mac. The C-pen has a left or right handed capacity and has a voice recorder.
I have found its given my boys a sense of confidence around their reading. It has opened up a more diverse reading range which they can now independently access and enjoy reading books of interest. Without the restriction of books that are at their reading level, which let’s face it, it can so often be quite boring when you are dyslexic.

My older son told me the other day that you can replay the text you scan, in segments, in the whole, which is great for those students that benefit from hearing things more than once.
In the classroom it is helping my boys to be more independent and giving them the freedom to access information in the way they need to. When using the C-pen they are able to see and hear words spelt and read correctly which only enhances their reading and spelling.
Over all I am very happy with the c-pens. Being able to watch my boys become more independent, have higher self esteem and be excited about reading is wonderful. In my opinion well worth the investment. I only wish I knew about the C-pen earlier.
