Ok, lets shed some light on the matter. The optacon, if I spell it right, is a device used in the old days to read something. I'm not sure what you can read with the optacon. If I'm not mistaken, I think you can put a sighted document such as a book into it and then it will write the letters on your hand palm so you put your hand inside it then it will write the letters on your hand palm .You will not have sighted writing on your hand, it just makes the pattorns on your hand. You need to know how each sighted letter looks like in order to use this machine. I do not know if it is still used today. I hope this is not as clear as mud? lol
