C-ing without limitations
Optelec developed the ClearView-C to eliminate all of the difficulties experienced when using desktop video magnifiers. After extensive consumer research, the ClearView-C was designed with the unqiue C-shaped arm placed on the left side, providing more space for documents and greater freedom of movement beneath the camera.

The ClearView-C Speech instantly converts any printed document into speech. Simply place a magazine or letter beneath the camera, swipe the screen to activate the speech feature and enjoy listening in a natural sounding voice of your choice. With the ClearView-C Speech, you can comfortably access information instantly - even lengthy documents.
