[access-uk] Re: Choosing Print Reading Product

Hi Peter.

Its another program, akin to KNFB reader but the main difference is that when you take a picture of text for recognition, the image is sent to a server on the internet through either your 3g or WiFi connection if your phone has one. The server processes the image and then sends the recognized text back to the phone. Not only is this less processor intensive generally, but TextScout will be supporting about three times as many phones as KNFB reader. You can read more about it and download a demo at www.textscout.eu.

All the best, Ibrahim.

I have never heard of TextScout. What exactly is it?

Hi Tony,

Depends on how portable you want it. If you want portable, then you can't
beat KNFB or TextScout. Also, if you have a compatible phone for either of
these products, then it will also be cheaper than any of the others.

If on the other hand you don't want to read with your phone, or lining up
the camera is an issue, then you should perhaps consider the EyePal range.
These are much simpler to use, and no "aiming" of the camera is required.

I hope this helps.

All the best

Steve

Hi all,

I'm liking the new products  where we can read instaantaniously!

NowI'm thinking of buying one of those products but of course I'd need to
know a    little more.

I probably won't want to rush in but say reflecting over our up coming
holiday time!

Now I'm not looking for a definitive of those recent reading products but I would like to know what you think the quality of those reading back wise are

like?

What gives the best results in reading back?

Talking of The Eyepal, Textscout and the KNF reader.

Only in terms of reading back to us that ticks all the boxes with regard to
what I wrote above.

No worries, will not judge on any particular response but would be good to
hear feedback.

Thanks

Tony
