Prodigi version 1.2: New spoken menus and audio feedback!

New spoken menus and audio feedback!

HumanWare is pleased to announce the immediate availability of ProdigiTM version 1.2, a free software update to the groundbreaking personal vision assistant. Among other great enhancements, Prodigi now reads the menu items out loud.

Users can listen to the optional spoken menus to ease use of all functions with natural audio feedback while following the magnified interface on screen. This new version also provides new video support on USB, integrated training videos, more visual and audio status information and many other enhancements.

"The new audio feedback feature makes Prodigi even easier to use. When browsing to modify a setting, or reading a document, hearing the spoken menu or status just confirms where I am, and what is displayed on the screen. This feature is reassuring, natural and non-intrusive!" says Samuel Adler, Low Vision Product Manager at HumanWare.

A breakthrough for people with vision loss

Prodigi is the world's most advanced, all-digital personal vision assistant for people with low vision conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and other eye conditions. For a lower price than traditional CCTVs, Prodigi delivers features that people with low vision want and need: unique Diamond Edge TextTM technology for crisp, clear reading at any magnification, and simple to use Touch and TapTM controls that put everything at your fingertips without having to use an X/Y table.

Prodigi allows you to magnify, read, and listen to whatever you want, save and retrieve family photos and important documents... With Prodigi, enjoy a whole new quality of life! While other bulky CCTV systems with speech are more expensive and take a long time before you can start to read, Prodigi is sleek, lightweight, and reads your documents out loud in seconds. Just plug it in and get started!

Read better in three simple steps

Prodigi makes reading as easy as 1-2-3!

With the simple user interface, just turn on Prodigi and getting started is as easy as 1-2-3:

1. Place what you want to see on the viewing surface.

2. Press a single button and Prodigi will magnify, display and even speak the text for you.

3. Read your document in comfort.

Jonathan Perino from Victoria State, Australia, wrote us to say, “My decision to purchase Prodigi is one of the best investments in myself that I have made to date. Prodigi delivers superior text sharpness that reduces eye fatigue so I can read for hours or have text or letters read to me.

Thomas E. Petersen from Texas USA, wrote "Prodigi is such a blessing. I wouldn’t give it up. I have read 2 books in the first couple of weeks I had it, and these books are over 500 pages long. I always use the Diamond Edge Text mode to read and follow along with the speech function. The Diamond Edge Text is so crisp and clean on the screen, my eyes don’t get tired."

From now, all Prodigi units will be shipped with version 1.2 installed. Existing owners can upgrade their units by following the instructions on the Prodigi support page.

Prodigi is available in three models: the Duo, a desktop unit with the detachable Tablet; the portable Tablet magnifier by itself, and a Desktop-only model.

HumanWare offers 15% off all Prodigi models on HumanWare online store for a limited time.
