I’m trying to figure out what the best portable pen scanner to purchase. I want one that will basically replace my highlighter pen and transfer sentences into WORD. I would think these would be ideal for college students — which one is the best quality and easiest to use. Not seeking one that translate languages thought I suppose others would like to know which one of those pen scanners would be ideal for foreign travel, reading menus, etc.

  1. While I've not used a pen scanner, I've checked with some colleagues and the consensus is that the IrisPen Express 7 will do the trick for you. The I.R.I.S. company is in the business of OCR software so I would trust the accuracy of the pen. It works with most text editing software including Word.
