Dolphin Pen magnifying laptops


SuperNova 16 launches today and introduces a brand new USB option.  Now with the new "Guest Mode", SuperNova 16 on a USB delivers instant accessibility on the go.  With Guest Mode there's no drivers, no installation and most importantly, no hassle! Plug your SuperNova USB into any Windows PC and experience instant magnification, speech and braille, as well as your personal SuperNova settings.

Guest Mode icon Guest Mode:

  • A graphic of the dimensions of the SuperNova Pen Instant, hassle free access
  • No installation, driver, activation or authorisation required
  • Offers HD Magnification, colours, highlights, speech, Braille & more
  • Ideal for visiting clients, friends or the library
  • No need for Administrator password; use with any Guest Account
  • Compatible with Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 PCs

Full Access icon Full Access:

If you're a regular visitor or staying longer? Install a Dolphin driver to the PC for ‘Full Access’ to SuperNova, including:

  • Scan & Read
  • Touchscreen magnification
  • Logon Screen support
  • Support for Windows security dialogs.

Unlike other Pen solutions, SuperNova on a USB:

  • is a full working licence, not a 30 day trial
  • can be run without administrator rights
  • does NOT install from the Pen to the PC
  • is not just an authorisation dongle
  • operates and behaves identically on Windows 7, 8.1 & 10 PCs.

Note: The first time you use the SuperNova USB on a new PC, you will need to find and run SuperNova’s “Go” program in Windows Explorer. The second time, SuperNova will run automatically.
