Sunrise was very easy to run. A blind man put a printed version under the cover and pressed the start button. Sunrise converted text in about 10 seconds due to technically immaculate construction. It consisted of seven purposely bounded processors (little brains) that worked – thought about concurrently, analysed the printed text and conveyed it into speech with maximum accuracy and minimum time.
Sunrise was possible to be command guided, for example via a personal computer Eureka A4 or any IBM computer.
