Prizmo 3 - Scanning, OCR & Speech
By Creaceed SPRL
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
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)

It works great
This application works great!
I have tons of reading to do for a MBA program, and my eyes get tired and I just need to multi-task and get through some case studies and wish somebody would just read them to me...
The case studies are always in PDF format, so Prizmo works great at the OCR scan everytime. If there is an error, its because the PDF is of very poor quality. Once I realized it uses the Mac accessibility support voices, I downloaded the entire lot of english speaking voices. From Fiona to Serena to Alex! I prefer Tessa from South Africa her pronounication is extremely clear and human but Serena from the UK is close second. Sorry USA Allison Siri is enough…
Prizmo, scans, saves, and reads the PDF back like a charm.
Note: there was a regional error with my version, all I got was Alex USA voice, but once I notified them, they said the fix was coming. It came, and all works perfectly and the voices are now all there…
It is extremely rare for small software outfits to answer bug reports, even more rare to update you when they are fixed, and delightful that they actually fix the bug!
If you need an OCR program with voice, this is it. Its nice to sometimes use various ways to input information, and this really hits it. The highlighting of the text as it reads is also a great feature. If they could add a save voice to MP3 as in app purchase it would be killer to sync to ipad or iPhone..
