Aim at text. Shoot. It's yours! Prizmo Go lets you quickly grab 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 fingertips.

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.

Literally, the best app of its kind!

Thank you for the kind words, Randy! They're really appreciated. /TC

Subscription beware

Apple loves subscriptions; I detest them. Previous pay to play makes more sense; can’t we just pay for functionality though. I like Prizmo on the Mac; subscription is just not a decent solution for users for this kind of app.

Developer Response ,

Hello. The Export Pack is actually a one-time purchase and unlocks all the features of the Premium Plan subscription except the translation feature and unlimited Cloud OCR.
No need thus to subscribe to the Premium Plan if you do not wish to use the translation function or if you use the built-in OCR instead of the Cloud OCR. We have chosen to offer two distinct options so that users can make the choice that suits them best. Kind regards. /TC

Can only read one page at a time!

I have vision problems and use this app to read long articles and book chapters. Usually they’re more than 1 page, and I have to keep repeating the photo, scan, and OCR steps for every page after it reads the page. If I want to review the page at a later time, I also have to repeat the photo, scan, and OCR steps. Developer: please note. I would be happy to give you five stars if there were a way to fix this.
