The Simon Reading Machine is a simple, all in one reading machine.  Its ease of use and straightforward functionality make it very appealing to all users.   As easy to use as a photocopier, the Simon can read back up to 3 pages per minute.  This reading device is highly effective, reliable and usable in any space. 

Simon needs only two main commands: start and stop.   Simon's high quality voice uses only three controls: volume, speed and pitch. The extra large scanning area makes it possible to scan 2 pages of a large book at the same time. The Simon Book Reading Machine is the perfect addition to any home, school or office. 

NOTE: This version can be ordered in Spanish, French or German. Please specify the language when submitting your order. For the English version of the Simon, see our product number 601004.
