id Mate Quest Bar Code Reader
i.d. mate Quest is a portable “all-in-one” talking bar code scanner that aids visually or print impaired individuals with the identification of items via the product’s bar code or UPC. Using text-to-speech and digital voice recording technologies, it allows users to access an on-board database of product descriptions, along with a tailored set of recorded voice messages. With i.d. mate Quest, the user can quickly add additional voice recorded information to existing products or to items not found in the database. Additional bar code labels are available to label any product or item that does not already have a bar code. Adhesive, tag, and clothing labels can be placed on nearly anything. Simply scan the bar code and add a voice recording.
And with i.d. mate Quest, you now have additional modes of identification and information access with wireless internet connectivity and an on-board camera. This provides for multiple features such as an extended database, pricing, currency identification, Skype video conferencing, and object recognition.
