KNFB Reader gives you instant access to print anytime and anywhere.
KNFB Reader 3.0 is a rapid and efficient text recognition app. Its text-to-speech, text-to-Braille, and text highlighting tools make it valuable for blind, low-vision, dyslexic, and others with reading differences.
Use it to import or take a photo of anything containing text. Take a photo and the app reads text out loud or displays it on a connected refreshable Braille display. Read with more ease thanks to the simultaneous highlighting of the sentence and word that is being read on the picture or in the plain text document. The app helps you get a good photo with special alignment tools, including spoken and vibration guidance. Snap multiple pages, such as a book, for later reading.

Ratings and Reviews
Six Star App! Dyslexic students must-have.
This is an incredibly powerful, accurate and user-friendly app. I have used Claro-read on my PC for several years and this is definitely up there with it in the quality stakes. The great advantage is that I can dip in and out of books and skim read like other students, without having to scan entire chapters as PDFs first. You can even use it in the library with a pair of headphones. Stunning. The only thing I would improve is the functionality for saving documents you have just scanned/red, which I haven’t got my head round yet. (48 hours after downloading, still head over heels in the honey moon!)
Brilliant. Doesn't work on new IPhone 6s
The best by far. I've tried many similar tools. This one is very fast and very accurate, even in low light. I took a few weeks before buying due to the high cost but I'm glad I bought it. A free trial would made me buy sooner -
One of the apps i couldn't live without, best money i have ever spent.
Best money i have ever spent, this app is so diverse in situations and what it can read. Its far better than any mainstream iPhone ocr app, and better than other specialist cheaper and free ones for people who are visually impaired.
