SARA (Scanning and Reading Appliance) is a speech output reading machine designed for use by individuals who are blind or have low vision. Using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, the SARA scans printed material, translates it into speech, and reads it aloud in a variety of user-selected voices. A user can pause, fast forward, rewind, or have words spelled out. It can also be connected to a computer monitor to display the text in large print. The device plays most audio formats, including Digital Accessible Information SYstem (DAISY)-formatted talking books and comes with a starter library of popular public domain books in DAISY format. The user can select from many interchangeable text and monitor background color combinations and adjust the style of type, size and spacing to make it easier to read.
