EYE-PAL The Eye-Pal by ABISee Inc scans printed material and instantly converts text to speech or sends the information to a Braille Display for the Blind and Deaf-Blind. Faster than flatbed scanners, the Eye-Pal takes only 3-7 seconds from the keystroke to speech or Braille output.

I-ZOOM i-Zoom is screen magnification / reader software with many of the features of ZoomText. Half the cost of ZoomText but still somewhat expensive. Check out Desktop Zoom as a free alternative. Verify if they work with e-mail and with Word.
