Serotek Introduces DocuScan PlusThought some might find this interesting.

Serotek Corporation, the leading provider of accessible multi platform and 
cloud-based solutions which can be accessed from anywhere, is proud to announce 
the release of DocuScan Plus. This innovative software allows persons to scan 
and read documents from any computer with an attached Twain-compliant scanner,  
sound card and internet connection. 

Serotek's DocuScan Plus offers high-quality optical character recognition, 
(OCR), to convert the printed page in to text.  This self-voicing application 
can read both printed pages from a Twain-compliant scanner, as well as many 
types of PDF files, including those containing text and those containing only 
images.  The software also supports scanners with duplex and ADF (automatic 
document feeder) capabilities.    DocuScan Plus can convert scanned documents 
in to MP3 audio files for playback on many portable devices, and the software 
can even convert scanned materials in to the popular DAISY format.  For Low 
Vision users, DocuScan Plus also offers a full Screen Magnifier for the reading 
of scanned text. This magnification option, when combined with the self voicing 
features of DocuScan Plus, allows documents to be comfortably read from the 
screen as well as via text-to-speech.  Materials can also be saved in Large 
Print. In this way, documents can be scanned, printed, and shared with friends 
or viewed offline under a Video magnifier.  

“We wanted to create an affordable application that really took in to account 
the way we access the printed word in the 21st century.”, said Mike Calvo, CEO. 
“We don’t spend all our time on one computer, or even one device anymore, so 
why should we  be using software based on that model?  When we make a product 
like this, with a feature set that’s useful to people with a wide variety of 
disabilities,and it’s just as easy to use from the classroom computer as it is 
from home, we believe it has the potential to open a lot of doors that have 
remained closed until now.”  

The DocuScan Plus software can be used as an installed program from your 
personal computer, or it can be accessed from any computer simply by visiting 
http://www.DocuScanPlus.com.  The program may be purchased for only $299, or 
less than one third of the cost of < /span>

other scanning solutions. 

Other features included are:

Braille Conversion: DocuScan Plus contains Braille translation options, 
allowing you to convert your scanned pages and PDF files into a variety of 
different braille formats based on the specific translation table you choose.  

Save To Kindle: Wirelessly Transfer scanned documents to the Amazon Kindle for 
reading on the go using the Kindle's built in text to speech function.

Export Scanned Text: Save documents and materials to a computer or portable 
DAISY player for offline reading.

Encrypted Online Storage: Save documents securely to the cloud and retrieve 
them from anywhere. 

Additional Synthesizer Support: Choose from a variety of synthesizers for use 
with this self-voicing application. 

Additional Support For Mobile Platforms: DocuScan Plus will support some 
external camera and mobile phone platforms. This functionality will come free 
with DocuScan Plus and it is currently scheduled for release in the first 
quarter of 2011.

DocuScan Plus may be used independently of any other Serotek software. The 
application  can allow persons to read the printed page with any Windows-based 
computer, regardless of whether any access technology has been installed or is 
currently running.
