This is great for scanning any article into text or long stories. My favorite feature is that it can scan tons of
Different languages and translate them in to any in other language. I use this a lot to translate Spanish stories into English. I don't normally say this about apps but is actually worth $1.99 or maybe more. If you want to be able to buy long documents that are printed but you need to retype it this app can do it in seconds.
Way better than your desktop scanner's OCR!
This solution (iPad plus this app) worked way better on less than perfect text than either of my very good desktop scanners (Canon 8800 and 9000) for a very simple reason. The onboard software/firmware in a desktop unit is simply no match for a large offsite computer with software that can be continuously improved. The turnaround time for receiving text back from an image was typically 7 seconds!
Like most OCR apps, recognition is slow. It takes about half a minute to recognize each page. Obviously, if you want to scan and recognize multiple pages, the process is even slower. You must snap the first page, then wait for it to recognize, then snap the second page and wait for it to recognize, and so on. This makes the process VERY laborious. It would have made so much more sense to be able to scan multiple pages all at once and THEN let it do the OCR on all those pages at the same time, but of course, it doesn't let you do that.
