Aim at text. Shoot. It's yours! Prizmo Go lets you quickly grab printed text with the camera. After text is recognized in a blink of an eye, you can interact with it in many useful ways. Or just send it to other apps. And if you've got a Mac, you can even copy/paste it there (*). No more retyping. Feels like magic, just at your finger tips.

Additionally, Prizmo Go provides rich interactions with the captured text. After shooting, text from the original picture is revealed, and swiping through it allows fast and accurate text selection directly from the image. Selected text can then be read aloud, or you can tap to browse to any printed website address, call phone numbers, trigger Mail app from an email address, or even reveal physical address in Apple Maps and initiate navigation to that place.

Prizmo Go comes with enhancements specifically built for VoiceOver, in addition to spoken guidance prior to shooting. That, combined with its text-to-speech capabilities, make it a great companion in case you need help reading printed documents.

Note: Prizmo Go won't let you create PDF documents. If that's what you need, please refer to the standard version of Prizmo.

Excellent App!

Robbiedoo's mom

I am using this app with my dyslexic students. It is quick and easy to use. It scans a magazine article or page in a book very quickly, and then a clear voice reads the text back. You can see the text and as reader is reading, each word is highlighted in yellow. Would highly recommend! I tried dozens of inefficient text to speech apps that cannot compete!
