For those of you looking for technology to help, look no further than The Reading Pen.  It's a portable learning tool designed for students of a second-language as well as for children and adults with reading difficulties (such as dyslexia). The perfect solution for increasing reading autonomy and fluency, and enhancing text comprehension.

You can easily scan text or insert it using the touch screen and virtual keyboard, hear it spoken aloud and obtain definition, translation, spelling, syllabication and correct pronunciation within seconds. All looked-up words can be transferred to the PC for further practice. Text can also be uploaded from the PC onto this fully mobile, lightweight Pen, and can be read aloud wherever you are.

You can find the details at http://www.wizcomtech.com/eng/catalog/platforms/01/default.asp?pCat=8&PlatformID=22.  Prices are between $200 and $400, but well worth the money.
