When designing the Poet Compact 2 we focused
on its main function: reading. This slender all in-one reading machine can read virtually
any kind of printed matter with just the press
of a button. There is no need to study lengthy
manuals to operate the Poet Compact 2. The
built-in stereo loudspeakers directed towards
the listener ensure a sound that is loud and
clear. The controls are self explanatory, in tactile
shape and have sensible pressing feedback as
well as touch tones. Try it yourself – you’ll be
convinced of how easy it is to operate.

The Poet Compact 2 is the basic model with just
2 buttons. To use, lift the lid, place your printed
text face down on the glass, and press the first
button. This commands the Poet to scan the
text for you and read it aloud using high quality
speech. The second button is the pause button
and stops and starts the speech immediately.
The control knobs are used to adjust the volume
and reading speed to your preference.
The Poet Compact 2+ has a front panel that offers
more controls and possibilities: access to menu
functions, speech settings, plug-ins, CD-drive for
listening to DAISY-books, etc
