Keeping it Simple!

We believe that no one should be prevented from reading.  So if you have a visual impairment and most technology feels too complicated, GuideReader is the product for you.

Everything about GuideReader is simple and easy to use. Browse for a new book with just fours keys. Listen and follow the simple step-by-step instructions read by human sounding voices. The menus can be as large as your need them, in colours of your choosing; so everything is always crystal clear and in focus. 

Unlike other mainstream technology, with GuideReader you'll never get lost.  Jump straight back to the home screen with the press of a single button.

Audio & large print - for every visual impairment

Need big print?  Go as large as your sight requires!  Unlike mainstream bookreaders, GuideReader doesn’t restrict how large you make the text in the book.  Pick a text font that works for you and read with word highlighting on or off. Or if your eyes tire easily, sit back, rest your eyes and listen to the audio.  

GuideReader is fully accessible, straight from the box. Designed with the unique requirements of readers with visual impairments, GuideReader has large print menus and icons that are high contrast and always easy to read.  The human voices are easy on the ear too, carefully guiding you, step by step.
