Prizmo 3 - Scanning, OCR & Speech

By Creaceed SPRL

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.

Description

Prizmo 3 is a scanning application with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) in over 40 languages with powerful editing capability, text-to-speech, and iCloud support.

No matter what capture device's at hand, Prizmo is the key 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)

What's New in Version 3.1

User feedback integration to fine-tune a number of features. Special thanks to Daniel, Dana, Richard, and Fred for their feedback and help to make a better Prizmo!

Workflow Improvements:
- Ability to perform a cleanup in batch mode and in the Automator action (Daniel).
- Restored the black cleanup mode of the previous Prizmo (Dana). There are now 4 cleanup choices [None, Black, Gray, Color] that you can choose from, with Black more suited to text (very high contrast), and Gray/Color more suited to mixed image and text documents.

Bug Fixes & Enhancements:
- Fixed PDF quality and dpi matching (Richard). Internal DPI estimate for a PDF document is now more accurate, depending on the included images.
- Fixed PDF Crop Frame (Fred). Some PDF documents could have unusual crop frame that would not be correctly interpreted by Prizmo. They are now correctly handled.
- Fixed a crash with popovers.
- Fixed a crash that could occur while OCR'ing a business card.

Customer Reviews

Works great, nicely integrated with iPhone version.

Best scanning/OCR app for the Mac if you need to scan documents either from a scanner or camera, will do all sorts of image manipulation, cropping, cleanup, etc. Hats off for Yosemite on day one! The OCR works well too, and you can edit the result in case recognition errors. As owner of iPhone version, I recommend it as it enables editing the same documents: you quickly grab’em with the phone, comfortably edit on the Mac with iCloud syncing.

I had an issue with some PDF file I wanted to recognise, but the developer answered rapidly with a solution. I’m all set and I like this app.

Developers: you get my 5 stars. Keep up with the good work!

DO NOT BUY THIS!!!

This overpriced app can not hadle a larger PDF file. It occupys all your system resources and shuts down your system constantly. In the end it delivers a very very slow, and inaccurate OCR. When it has finally finished, the export function is not executing properly. It has wasted three days of my life since my computer can’t do anything when the OCR is running. This app is absolutely horrible.

WORST PRODUCT EVER

I WASTED 50 DOLLARS ON THIS APP THAT DOES NOT WORK AT ALL!! DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE.
Such a waste of money...
