HIMS Blaze ET DAISY Book Player with OCR


The Blaze ET features a DAISY book reader and portable OCR in one convenient device. Use it to capture and read aloud a menu, magazine article, library book, and more – all at the touch of a single button. There’s no worries about focusing thanks to the built-in auto-focus camera ensures a high-quality image for accurate OCR and text-to-speech.

The Blaze ET has easy to find buttons to move between all the different functions: music, radio, books, OCR and recording. Get single touch access to each of these popular features! A familiar numeric keypad allows for more advanced features such as marking and navigating files, and easy to access controls on the side of the unit allow users to adjust pitch, rate and volume on the fly.

You can use the Blaze ET to read and play a large variety of files, including DAISY, TXT, BRL, MP3, MP4, and more! Listen to the internet radio as you go, and record in high-quality audio from the internal microphone or using an external microphone or stereo line-in.
