Plustek Book Reader V100 Scanner Product Details
Plustek Book Reader V100 Scanner
The Plustek Book Reader is a unique combination of a scanner, text to speech program, and text magnification software. Using the included scanner, at the touch of one button, your book is scanned using highly accurate software, and then read back to you through your own computer. The text to speech software provides highly lifelike speech output to make your listening experience more enjoyable. Reader speed can be controlled using simple hot keys. Once the scanned material is on your computer, you can use the text management tools to magnify the text or provide color contrast for improved reading directly on your computer. Multiple pages can be scanned at one time and saved as one document. Scanned documents can be stored as text or Word documents, or even as MP3 or WAV files that you can transfer to a portable listener and take with you.
- Natural Voice
Provides exceptional natural-sounding (NOT robotic) voice to make your book reading experience more enjoyable.
- Magnifying Tool
The user-friendly magnifying tool can be used independently from the Book Reader and it gives you the flexibility to enlarge any box on the screen at any time. Also, the Book Reader is integrated with a "See & Speak" function that will pronounce any word pointed at by the mouse cursor.
- PDF Available
Only a one-step process to create or save a file in PDF format, you can even read PDF documents from the internet.
- Audio Filing
Scanned documents can be saved in MP3 or WAV format. With the assistance of portable audio devices, you can enjoy book reading anytime and anywhere.
- Color Contrast
The color contrast function increases the visual effectiveness and helps those with color blindness by using certain color combinations. This allows an easier and more pleasant reading experience.
- Zoom Text
This function provides the option for readers to enlarge texts in the documents. Hot keys
With a few hot keys, functions such as voice volume, forward/backward, reading speed, color contrast, word spelling are just one click away.
- Repeating Function

The word spelling function can enhance learning effectiveness and pronunciation accuracy.
- Text Editable
A useful and practical tool to rewrite or modify the scanned documents.
- File Format
Scanned result will automatically be saved as text, rtf and pdf format on the hard drive for future reference. MP3 and WAV format options are also available.
- Unique hardware design
Plustek's patent pending SEE™ (Shadow Elimination Element) Technology includes a specially designed edge and lamp. This technology allows "zero edge" scanning (or book edge scanning design) which means the scanning module can scan right up to the edge of the scanner where the book spine is placed. The book can therefore be scanned with the pages completely flat on the glass to avoid the book spine shadow and distorted lines of text which occur when the books are scanned on a traditional flatbed scanner. Plustek has already received a patent on its specially designed lamp with curved ends. With this patented function, you won't have to worry about keeping the integrity of any text or image again.
