A South Korean company, Mouscan, is bringing out a handy little gizmo that scans text and then reads it aloud in any language. The Voiscan, which uses technology originally developed by Hewlett-Packard for its CapShare handheld scanning device way back in 1998, is quick and easy to use.All you do is wave the mobile-sized device over the text you want translating.

The gadget is expected to be aimed at travellers and the visually impaired when it is released sometime next year. [The Raw Feed and TECH CHRONICLES]
