Scanning and Reading
OpenBook™ allows you to convert printed documents or graphic based text into an electronic text format using accurate optical character recognition and quality speech. OpenBook's many powerful low vision tools allow you to customize how the document appears on your screen, while other features provide portability.
Scanning and Reading Software
OpenBook converts printed documents or graphic-based text into an electronic text format on your PC, using high-quality speech and the latest optical character recognition (OCR) technology. OpenBook is innovative software designed to enhance success for people who are blind or have low vision who need access to printed and electronic materials. OpenBook and the PEARL document camera create a complete scanning and reading system for work, home, and school.
Freedom Scientific’s OpenBook 8.0 scanning and reading software goes beyond providing access to printed documents or graphic-based text. The December 2007 release provided new synthesizers, updated optical character recognition (OCR) engines, improved access to online books, common keyboarding with JAWS and MAGic, built-in braille support, new low vision features, new reference features, and much more.
knfb Reading Technology, Inc. is pleased to announce the latest breakthrough in print accessibility. We have developed software which places the functionality of a reading machine into a multifunction cell phone. The Mobile Reader products can be activated and ready to use with the touch of a single button on the phone. The user takes a photo of the print to be read and the character recognition software in conjunction with high quality text-to-speech will read the contents of the document aloud. At the same time, it can display the print on the phone’s built-in screen and highlight each word as it is spoken.
