I purchased this device for someone who has a reading disability. Their comprehension and retention is much better when something has been first read to them. After the first reading, they often can re-read text without difficulty.
What isn't immediately obvious from the product description/technical specifications is that you can only scan one line of text at a time. Therefore, if you're needing an entire page or paragraph read, you'll have to pause after each line and listen to that line being read before moving to the next line. This makes it a very slow and tedious process. I returned it because of this limitation.
The reading voice is a standard computer type voice. Nothing earth shattering but, once you get used to the voice, you can hear the words fairly easily. For me, this is acceptable since it pretty much represents the current technology capabilities of most all retail devices that read "text".
With regular frequency, I did find that a scanned line got completely messed up and had to be re-scanned. You have to be very steady and smooth when scanning a line.
We didn't look much into the other capabilities (i.e. translation, games, dictionary, etc...) since that wasn't the primary purpose for buying the device.
It didn't have any problems with different font sizes/styles.
I definitely could see where the pen could be of great use to someone with greater needs.
IMPORTANT NOTE: No problems with returning the ReadingPen and folks at J&R (vendor) were very helpful with the return.
i thank the inventors for giving my grand daughter a chance at a normal life
