By using ERE, the technology that allows for fast reading of text, consumers can be sure that they’re getting what they pay for, said ERE’s chief executive, Jim Lutwidgeon.
The technology was originally developed for the Japanese government by Japanese technology company SoftBank, and is now available for the US, Canada and Australia.
ERE uses optical sensors that detect the way a text is being read and send a signal to the computer.
The system is now in the hands of hundreds of publishers and publishers are working with ERE to implement the new technology.
In the meantime, it has been used in about 20,000 homes, according to Lutwitgeon.
