Now when you're on-the-go whether by yourself or with the friends and family, you can experience fun, easy photo printing! The SELPHY ES40 Compact Photo Printer features a great combination of quality and ease of use. With ink and paper in one cartridge, you'll be able to print borderless images in Credit Card and Postcard sizes, in color or black &amp; white that will be water-resistant and last up to 100 years."</em></p><p><img height="379" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1263043456.usr11334.jpg" style="border: 0px;" width="485" /></p><p>Canon have announced the Selphy ES40 Compact Photo Printer which has voice guidance built in to&nbsp;it.&nbsp;The&nbsp;voice guidance is a feature you can turn on and the printer will guide you through step by step instructions in order to print or add graphics to your images, without having to rely on a manual.&nbsp; The screen is 3.5 inch wide and navigation through the menus&nbsp;is controlled&nbsp;via&nbsp;the scroll wheel.&nbsp; I personally see the voice guidance as a gimmick, but I can certainly see how it might help others, especially those who find the menu's on small screens difficult to read.&nbsp; You can see the product specs on the Canon US site.</p>
