Description

Take a picture of anything that has words on it, and Voice will read it to you! Updated with top notch technology, Voice will let you listen to all your books/words/documents/magazines in a matter of seconds. Voice is simple. Hold it in front of a document. If it sees the page, it will tell you "4 corners detected". When you're ready, just say the word "Capture". Voice will automatically snap a picture. Then say "read," and Voice will read the words aloud to you. People with visual impairment or dyslexia can easily snap a photo of anything and have it read in a matter of seconds. Whether it is a menu at a restaurant, a medicine label, and expiration date on a milk carton, or even an information board at a museum. Foreign exchange students can read and listen to an english book at the same time using this app. Thus, listening to pronunciation and following along, word-by-word. Key Features: - New and improved OCR quality! Be amazed with how accurate the app will read your documents. You no longer need to worry about low lighting and bad focus, Voice corrects it automatically and gives you near-perfect readings every time. - Voice reads handwritten text! It can read the handwritten text even in cursive with slightly messy handwriting! Almost no other app can do this. - Voice control. Now you can take a picture by simply saying "Capture" or "Take picture". Voice will literally snap a photo at your command. Then simply say the word "Read" and Voice will start reading it to you. Right now there are only 2 Voice commands but I will be adding more in future updates. - Book mode – reads multiple pages one after another. Just simply keep taking photos. Then when you say "Read," Voice will be able to read them all to you one by one. - Automatic language detection! The OCR will automatically find and detect the language of your text, so you can read documents that contain text with multiple languages! If you let VoiceOver do the reading, it can fluently switch between languages. Supports over 30 major languages (basically, any language that's supported by VoiceOver is supported by Voice). - Field of view report – Just point it at a document. Voice will automatically tell you when all 4 corners of the document are visible. - Fully compatible with VoiceOver and made specifically with accessibility in mind. - Vertical and horizontal column detection and smart column-based reading- ex: newspapers. - Better OCR quality and technology than almost every other expensive paid service. - Adjustable speaking rate. Just customize it to your liking in the app Settings. Some Tips: - This app works only when connected to the internet. - Make sure your phone isn't on silent and your volume is all the way up (or enough for you to hear the voice).

    Extremely basic and annoying voice. Even in other accents. Does not grab all of the text and they make you pay upfront without trying it first.
  • Don’t get!

    I tried this app and as a high schooler I thought it would be nice but it sucked. The quality on the screen was horrible and I am not happy because some of the reviews were ok. But that means they are FAKE! Do not buy this app!!!

    first, to the developer, I want to say thank you this is a wonderful app and I use it all the time. I use it for reading mail, computer screens, bottles, canned goods, and just about anything else I can think of. I highly recommend this app to anybody who is visually impaired or blind. It is a great tool to have.
  • Excellent app.

    It is an excellent app. I tried to scan my laptop screen with Arabic and Hebrew text on the screen and the app worked better than what I expected.

    This app is very well made. The OCR is on par with other such apps. It sometimes seems to do better than others. Very well done, and I hope to see more in the future
