    Is there a PEN / SCANNER / READER gizmo on the market for SEN kids ?

    Something they can plug headphones in to and scan the text in a book and have it read out to them?

    Anyone got one? Used one? Seen one?

    Read and Write can do this. Have a look here Although this is software, not sure if you mean a standalone device?
