Description

Take a picture of anything that has words on it, and Voice will read it to you! Designed for iOS 8, this simple and easy to use interface will let you listen to all your books/words/documents/magazines in a matter of seconds.

Running late for work? Just snap a photo of a newspaper article, put on your headphones, and let Voice do the reading for you while you drive peacefully without grieving over not being able to read the news for today.

People with visual impairment or dyslexia can easily snap a photo of anything and have it read in a matter of seconds. Whether it is a menu at a restaurant, a medicine label, and expiration date on a milk carton, or even an information board at a museum.

Foreign exchange students can read and listen to an english book at the same time using this app. Thus, listening to pronunciation and following along, word-by-word.

Key Features:
- Book mode – reads multiple pictures or pages one after another but it takes the same processing time as it does for a single picture. As the initial image is being read, the next image is being processed in the background, and so on... therefore it does not use additional processing time.
- Multiple languages – Reads/Detects in over 30 different languages
- Field of view report – says when all 4 corners of the document are visible
- Auto capture photos without any user interaction.
- Precise document area boundaries detection for better recognition
- Smart Crop – offers the possibility to estimate the quality of the document area boundary detection and make a decision about cropping (to improve processing time).
- Two-dimensional geometric and three-dimensional perspective distortion correction (for better OCR).
- Improved accessibility and made fully compatible with VoiceOver
- Document image auto alignment and rotation.
- Brightness and contrast equalization.
- Document background cleaning.
- Special presets for producing grayscale and color documents optimized for legibility.
- Vertical and horizontal column detection and smart column-based reading- ex: newspapers
- Ability to export text/images to third party service such as Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Email, and many more!
- Comparable OCR results to other expensive paid services
- Smaller install size than most other services
- Changeable speaking rate – Three speeds that you can choose from, modifiable in Settings.

Some Tips:
- Does NOT work with handwritten text
- Make sure your phone isn't on silent and your volume is all the way up (or enough for you to hear the voice).
- Sharp images with even lighting and clear contrasts will work best. Motion blur or bad camera focus will decrease the quality of the detected text.
- Keep the images straight, if the photo is slanted or if the object in the image is curved, it may effect the quality of the text.
- This app works only when connected to the internet.

Perfect and sounds like Siri. You can change speaking speeds.

Slow

DilloBar

Takes ages to process even one image. Couldn't get past that part.

Horrible

Hunker kitten

Tried to take pictures of my sons text from a Canadian textbook. It was on ecosystems and bees. I got American history on mining and Native American connections. Never will I use this app. Not helpful at all.
