The Plustek OpticBook 3600 is a solid scanner which is easy to use and has a lip for guiding the placement of a book with no need to remove the pages. The shadow elimination results in less distortion of print. The text to speech voices are male and female (American and British). When connected to a computer the text output can be displayed onscreen whilst being read, with a choice of fonts and background/foreground colour schemes. Text files can saved to a hard drive as they stand, or as MP3 and WAV format.

The scanning area is A4 size. There is a jack for USB connection and when connected to a computer it works alongside screen reader output with short cut keys that are available from the instruction guide on the web from Plustek.
