A coworker recently sent out an email asking if she was the only one who had not heard about the KNFB Reader App for iOS. I returned her email with a copy of the one sent to all coworkers, including her the first week of September, 2014,as the per-release excitement was building up.
If you are a bit late to the KNFB Reader APP Party, no worries, the app is out and receiving rave reviews. It is a $99 app that like its predecessor, will allow users to take pictures of text, and have the text read back to you, quickly and accurately. It has many features, the earlier version did not have, a faster processing time, and is $900 less! What’s not to like?
Here are some resources to get you up to speed:
