Mobile Color recognizer and light detector (MCR) is a unique software which 
was developed to work with Mobile Speak and Mobile Accessibility. It can be
installed in camera phones (currently it works with almost all Symbian 
series 60 phones). MCR can be used to determine the color (or different

level of light. MCR offers several options so that the user can configure 
program according its needs e.g. adapt the local light conditions, select a 
zoom level, level of confidence. MCR is very easy to install into the phone.

installed on the phone. There are different shortcut keys so an easy use of 
the software
is guaranteed.

will be adapted to the Nokia 6260 soon.

there will be better results in newer phones (the ones that have a 1.3

the other phones. Before using the Mobile Color Recognizer you should have
read the manual and do some training in order to get the most accurate
