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).

Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been using this app for a number of years and still find it useful and user friendly. The features to adjust the images are excellent.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the kind words about Prizmo! They're really appreciated. /TC
I was astounded at how good the OCR was from both letters and business cards. Having them read back, at variable speeds, is icing. I love the voice choices and am using both english and french. the in app purchase was painless and very well implemented.
Lighting plays a huge role in success and I have to say all my initial attempts were 100% accurate, but I tried with some less than perfect light and accuracy was not so good.
I love the business card picture being added to "contacts".
In the end it did what I expected better than I expected. Well done.
Although it is possible to use this app, it is frustrating. The page detection consistently fails even on a contrasting background and it always incorrectly rotates the pages. With much editing the PDF becomes clear, but this is very time consuming. Importing large PDFs also can be buggy.
