Prizmo is a universal photo-based scanner app that lets you scan and recognize text documents, business cards, and images, and then export them as PDF/Text, vCard, or JPEG/PNG. Prizmo relies on state-of-the-art technologies, like a highly accurate OCR, real-time page detection, and beautiful image cleanup. Using iCloud, you can even shoot the picture on your iPhone, and finish editing on your iPad or Mac. All of this in an elegant and intuitive user experience.

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).

If i could give it 10 stars i would!

This is excellent. I have downloaded and tried trial versions of software that cost $50
And i have fiddled with scanners, post processing photo apps etc, and ocr scanning programs. None of them can read faint dot matrix, for instance - a requirement i have. This thing reads everything, and gets it 98% right. You can push a document through the feeder and output a pdf from the scan function at 300dpi open this app on the ipad and load the entire document pdf file. Start on page1 and it will scan each page to, say, text output, save it todropbox and you can have it cleaned up a few minutes later. Takes a bit of figuring out the functions of each button, though Works just fine on a set of jpegs too.

Probably the best OCR reader to date...

Not perfect, but it's close. Certainly, it's the most "flash" OCR reader App on the App Store, and it's reasonably easy to use.

I purchased the voice of "Rachael - UK English" for the Reader option in the App (she sounded the best out of the English voices for reading text). You can either type text in manually or paste it from somewhere else, and it will be read out to you in the voice you purchase (a $3.99 extra In-App purchase).

Scanning and interpreting text? Well, it's been about 95% accurate on a few documents that I've scanned so it's not too bad. One feature I like is that you can either press a camera shutter button on the screen to take a photo of what your scanning OR you can tap the microphone button, hold your iPhone steady over the document and simply say: "Take Picture" and it does it !!!

There are features allowing you to enhance or modify the picture before it does the OCR as well.

More hype than substance

Was hoping it could recognize handwriting and convert it to text but I guess that kind of technology is years away still. Tried getting it to read a page on a book and it failed. Scanner Pro app, on the other hand, copied it perfectly. Not a dropbox user but I do use Evernote so I'm up the creek without a paddle using this. Feel a bit ripped off. 13 bucks for what? And they have the gall to promote voice text reader but want to stiff you another 4 bucks for the privilege!! I'll stick to BC reader and scanner pro until this puppy gets itself sorted. Disappointed sorry...How do you get your money back on these things when you feel robbed?
