My fingertips are buzzing already with this “Fingertip screen reader” but why invent this when eBooks are TTS enabled anyway?

February 20, 2014

This so called “ring that scans and reads text” might prove to be a lovely way for me and others to return to reading paper books again, but I do wonder why the press release ignores the dawning of the text-to-speech enabled eBook? It does the same thing without having to concentrate on guiding a little camera along a line of text and keeping straight with buzzing fingertips!

For me being able to read all those bits of paper that are given to me by public services, the NHS, commercial services, would be far more valuable and liberating.
