Introducing the all-new, upgraded PenFriend 2 Voice Labeling System! This best-selling, low cost, audio labeler for the blind and visually impaired lets you label anything and everything with discreet audio labels all in your own voice. Easily record and re-record information using this versatile, pocket-sized, easy-to-use labeling system. You can instantly play back the recordings anywhere simply using the PenFriend 2 – no computer required.

The upgraded PenFriend 2 is slimmer in design that the original model and has four simple yellow tactile operating buttons that contrast against the black casing of the device. These buttons are designed to make it easier for the blind or visually impaired user to locate and use. 

Another new feature is an easy to use on/off recording function that prevents you from having to hold the record button when recording. 

Use to label food/freezer items, film/music collections or household objects. Organize letters and other paperwork. Record shopping lists or leave audio messages, or use it as a portable note-taker at the office or classroom – just record your message and keep track of it by placing the allocated label in a small notebook.

Comes with 4GB internal memory, 127 colored labels, 3 magnetic badges (great for using on tins), neck lanyard and 2 AAA batteries. Also includes free ‘PenFriend sticker management software’ which works with JAWS screen reader and free CreateLINK software to access sound enabled books, posters or maps. You can also download MP3 files (books and music) from your computer using the management software (USB cable required to connect device to computer – not included). 1-Year Manufacturer’s Limited Warranty.

To use, simply allocate one of the coded self-adhesive labels and record and store your message on the PenFriend 2. To play back a recording, make sure that the PenFriend 2 is in the default Recording mode (red light). Touch any label with recordings and you will hear it played back. There is no limit to the length of each message. Auto power-off after 3 minutes.

Use the backup features on your computer to save your recordings. See manual for more information.

NOTE: The PenFriend 2 can only read old PenFriend 1 labels if the old PenFriend 1 memory is downloaded to the PenFriend 2. This may be accomplished using the PenFriend 1 to PenFriend 2 File Conversion Utility which can be downloaded free of charge from the following link.
