The Connect 12 is like wearing a pair of glasses that goes everywhere with me. My favorite feature is the ability to scan printed material and read back to me with a clear distinct voice. It gives me independence in not having to depend on others to read to me. I consider this wonderful device to be my personal reader!

I like that the Connect 12 allows Diamond Edge which does not hurt my eyes and it is a portable device that can be used on the go no matter where or the time of day. It brings back quality of life, the freedom of reading and it allows me to achieve my full potential.

Its portability makes it a perfect solution for a middle school or high school student. Being able to go from class to class with a device that is lightweight is great with the access to both the whiteboard and his documents. The split screen feature is important to my student, especially for his math class.
