TEHRAN, Dec. 26 (ISNA)-Iranian inventor Ramin Sedighi made a small device that turns silent books into speaking ones.
The gadget is a useful computer system that pronounces, translates and explains pictures and words of a book located on it when its electronic pen touches them.
The device can provide a very effective method for teaching foreign languages to children between 4- 16 and will be available in early 2008.
It contains a USB port, audio output, electronic pen, 512 megabyte memory for storing 15 books and a SD card which can store 60 books as its flash memory.
It works with electricity or battery, is as big as a 13-inch laptop and is light enough to be portable.
