Prizmo 3 is a scanning application with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) in 25 languages with powerful editing capabilities, text-to-speech, iCloud support, and translation into 59 languages.

No matter what capture device is at hand, Prizmo is the best option for scanning and performing OCR. It works with pictures taken with your iPhone, iPad, or digital camera, with documents coming from connected or Wi-Fi scanners, even with screenshots! It will help you easily scan any documents (invoices, receipts, boards, giant advertisements...) of any sizes (US Letter, US Legal, A4, and custom)...

"My results were great, and it could definitely act as my only scanner. But, it really isn’t only a scanner, it can be used on anything. If you see a movie poster or an ad that you like, and would like to have documented, just take a picture, and Prizmo will help you with perspective, cropping and everything else." (by Joe Turner - MacApper)

Native, but OCR lacks performance

Designed for Mac and using quite some macOS features or design guidelines, which I think is great. The quality of optical character recognition (OCR) is lacking. It has trouble with for example the number 7, many fonts, and I find myself making very much corrections on most types of scans. They tout a deep neural network (DNN), but they'd be better of upgrading to a reinforced learning model, so that the engine learns from it's mistakes (perhaps on an opt-in basis so they won't sacrifise privacy of documents). Version 3.7 is crashing way too often, while trying to optimize recognition of specific parts of a document.

Prima app, goede support

Mooie interface en werkt bij OCR'en van documenten erg goed en gebruiksvriendelijk.
Na contact met klantenservice recente versie gedowload van site, waarbij scannen goed werkt. Apple doet er erg lang over om apps goed te keuren, hierdoor nog niet in de app store.
