Some say the Kindle is good, but what if you can’t read? Then the Kindle isn’t too effective, and so an Iranian inventor named Ramin Sedighi has reportedly created a talking e-book. If his talking e-book works well, it could be a serious threat to Amazon’s Kindle, which so far is very popular.
Basically, it works by moving the stylus over words and the device will then pronounce out the words. The only question i have is how fast the system can keep up. As long as it can work at a reasonable pace, it should be pretty appealing to many. Another interesting feature is that it can somehow explain pictures. No word on how this works, whether it has some picture recognition software, or uses embedded data. It is set to come with a USB port, audio out, stylus, 512MB of memory, and SD memory expansion. It is said to be laptop sized and it is aimed to be useful for 4-16 year olds.
Unfortunately, no word on the manufacturer or pricing, but is said to be available sometime next year.
