The C-Pen Exam Reader has been approved by The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) for use in exams. With this development, students who have reading difficulties such as dyslexia or English as a second language (ESL) can independently take exams knowing that they can read and understand the questions. The Exam Reader is major technological breakthrough for anyone wanting assistance in reading exam questions. The pen is a totally portable, pocket-sized device that reads text out aloud with an English human-like digital voice, with headphones meaning that students can still sit their exams in the main exam hall.

The C-Pen Exam Reader is half the size, half the weight and much faster than previous generations of reader pens. Importantly it also has a very clear digital voice making it easy to understand. Under the JCQ regulations there is no need to apply for access arrangements, however the pen must be part of a student’s normal way of working.

“The C-Pen Exam Reader is a giant leap forward for allowing students to take exams without the need to be in a separate room with a human reader,” said Jack Churchill, sales director of Scanning Pens Ltd. “This kind of technology is really helping to increase reading ages, increase confidence and as a result is changing people’s lives.”
The C-Pen Exam Reader will be officially launched at the TES Special Needs London Exhibition: 9th - 10th October 2015, Business Design Centre, London. A free 30 day trial is available for schools.
