System Access does have document scan, but Cobra takes a direct screenshot and performs OCR on the screen. This is useful, for example, with inaccessible PDF documents or graphical-based programs. Yes, all screen readers will announce when their demos has expired, but Cobra will continue to function and speak, which is not the case with other screen readers.

Thanks for the information on the new screen reader.

System Access does do the OCR and every screen reader lets you know it's
demo has expired, does it not?

Hello all,
I just want to tell you about an interesting new screen reader made by
German company Baum. It's called Cobra (I know, it's named after a
snake, hahaha). Joking aside, it contains lots of interesting and
inovative features, such as the ability to capture the screen and
perform on the fly OCR. No other screen reader I know does this. You can
download it, and try it as a 30 minute reboot situation from
www.baum.com. What's interesting though is that although a reboot is
necessary to run the 30 minute demonstraiton again, Cobra actually will
still speak, but will interrupt and remind you that the demo has
expired. Again no other screen reader does this.
