It provides users several major benefits including:

  • Increased productivity
    Due to its design, it enables full control of the Readit software even if the application is minimised or out of focus. This means advanced background capturing and reading tasks are possible. For example, you can capture and begin listening to and seeing a document whilst you're writing notes on it in Microsoft Word, all without leaving Microsoft Word!
  • Enhanced ease of use
    Although Readit's keyboard controls are very straightforward, some users may not wish to learn additional keyboard shortcuts. Having the dedicated keypad provides direct access to all of the most commonly used features.
  • Compact footprint: Occupying just 76 mm x 171mm, (3.0 x 6.7 inches) the Readit Keypad will fit on the busiest of desks without difficulty.
  • Lightweight: Readit Keypad weighs just 185 grams (0.4 lbs) making it easy to take with you wherever you go.
