Summary: The unit has a flaw that is it will read in voice mmode 1 line at a time but if the sentence is longer you have to scan again and this reduces understanding. Especially for those who are vision impaired and are trying to understand the article.
Summary: I read all the reviews about this product carefully, and almost decided not to buy because of the reviews by those that complained of the functionality. I decided that I would try, and wow, I was impressed by the accuracy of this product.
Summary: I bought this pen scanner to scan numbers from my lottery tickets into a second chance drawing instead of having to type the 30 numbers required for each entry to enter the drawing. Unfortunately the lottery tickets are on a white and yellow background.
Summary: I read so many so-so (or horrible) reviews for scanner pens that I was hesitant to get one. But the Iris Pen works brilliantly. Write out of the box, within 20 minutes I was scanning from excerpts from books into Pages on my MacBook (OS X 10.5.8). This pen is fully Mac compatible.
Summary: I am a Medico working in a Government organisation. I bought this pen from Amazon on 12th of Jan 2011. Though the item reached me late, I am surprised by the ease of set up and the excellent result that it is giving afterwards. I am using 64 bit version of Windows 7 Home premium.
Summary: I had the old Iris Pen 2 and wanted and upgrade so this is that upgrade I want. The version 6 of the pen is not very different, in handling, and I find it does and excellent, realtime OCR translation job.
Summary: People have difficulty with this pen because they don't know how to use it. The manual and the online support is pretty useless. There is little to hunt out online in the way of any real help... so my suggestion is don't waste your time. I had a boat load of troubles...
