Dakshya Nepal is an edu-tech company aspiring to integrate education with innovation & technology to bring a digitized reform in Nepalese education. After a year of research and experience, Dakshya discovered a gap; our education system still follows traditional rote learning. With an aim to foster children’s curiosity while learning, Dakshya Nepal has introduced SmartSpeak for preschool children aged between 18 months to 7 years. It is a holistic package that comes with SmartSpeak Reader and SmartSpeak Books.
SmartSpeak Reader is an interactive tool that matches words to images in the reading books. It has a preloaded audio file that activates when touched in the book and the speaker inside it plays the audio. The SmartSpeak books, on the other hand, are printed with nanotechnology so the pen can recognize and read the books.
Instant sound generation when the pen touches the book
4 GB storage
Portable and lightweight (66g)
SmartSpeak Reader is a kid-friendly portable device. Its dolphin-like appearance and attractive, slim design make it easy for kids to grab, hold and use. It has a dark blue On/Off/Music button. To Switch on or switch off, the button must be pressed for a few seconds, and to play music, the button must be pressed once. It comes with a USB/Charging Port, secured with a cover to prevent any electrical hazards as well. It also comes with an ear jack to connect your headphones or speakers.
Connection and Controls
A single SmartSpeak Reader can connect and read all the four-book sets that Dakshya Nepal offers. Each book has a ‘Get Started’ symbol, placed at the very top of the cover page. Once the pen detects SmartSpeak’s unique code, the pen will read the entire book for you.
SmartSpeak Reader comes with a replacement warranty of 12 months. However, the warranty is not applicable on products that are broken, damaged due to waterlogging, heated externally, or dismantled. The charger is not covered under warranty.
SmartSpeak Reader comes with an educational pen, a stand, charging accessories, and a warranty card. It is securely packaged in a box and the box is divided into various compartments to ensure secure and concise packaging.
SmartSpeak Reader’s price in Nepal is NRs. 7200 inclusive of VAT. It is available at the official website of Dakshya Nepal and other e-commerce websites viz. Daraz Nepal, Gyapu, Sastodeal, and SmartDoko for purchase. You can also contact the Facebook page or Instagram page of Dakshya Nepal for additional details.
