Intel has launched a new reader that is not aimed at the same markets that the typical eReaders are aimed at. The reader from Intel is aimed at people with reading based disabilities like dyslexia or low-vision and for the blind.

The device is about the size of a paperback book, converts printed text to digital text, and then reads the text aloud to the user. Intel claims that the device can help the 55 million users in the country with specific learning disabilities like dyslexia.

The reader has a high-resolution camera and is powered by an Intel Atom processor. The user aims the camera at the text to be read and snaps a picture of the page. The Intel Reader then does all conversion and reads the text to the user. Pricing and availability is unknown at this time.
