KNFB reader allows you a high degree of control over things like reading
speed. It also give you information on the position of documents in
relation to the camera etc. Additionally you can save scanned material and
also create multi page documents. I’ve used other cheaper OCR apps and KNFB
outdoes them all. It periodically is offered at a reduced price so it’s
worth waiting for this to happen.
