★ Prizmo OCR App for iOS Enhances VoiceOver Support

Prizmo, a scanning, OCR, and speech application for iPhone and iPad, has been updated with enhanced support for VoiceOver. From the release notes:

Prizmo is made for everyone, and is thus fully compatible with VoiceOver. It provides voice guidance to help position your iPhone when taking document pictures, and will find the text orientation automatically if it’s turned left, right or upside down. Prizmo’s quick capture mode provides a fast path from picture to speech synthesis for an improved workflow, and it provides a high-quality voice reader (individual voices available as in-app purchases).

So far, in our tests, the app works exceptionally well. The user is guided by voice instructions to properly fit the page in the camera’s view, and a series of tones leading up to the snapping of a picture helps to alert the user if their hand is not holding steady. OCR output has been surprisingly accurate, and the conversion works quickly and cleanly. We highly recommend this app!

Thanks to the Prizmo team for making another great OCR option for VoiceOver users.
