Making Graphics-based Text Accessible to the Visually Impaired.

This user-friendly program converts printed documents or graphic-based text into an electonic format on your PC, using quality speech and the latest in optical character recognition (OCR) technology.

 

OpenBook utilizes both Nuance OmniPage® and ABBYY FineReader® OCR engines to bring you the most accurate text recognition available. You also can choose between two leading text-to-speech software synthesizers: RealSpeak® Solo (natural, human-sounding voices) or Eloquence (efficient synthesized speech that often is preferred for editing and document skimming).

 

Customize Your Viewing.

With so many low vision features, you can tailor the appearance of text on your screen (font style, size, character spacing, and color), view with split-screen and compare your original document and OCR conversion results, use Masking and Word Spotlighting to help you follow text as it is read, and more.

 

OpenBook with PEARL - a Truly Portable Reading Solution.

The PEARL® expands the features of OpenBook to provide lightning fast OCR. With OpenBook, the PEARL folding camera deploys in seconds to connect to your PC. You can instantaneously snap a picture of your reading material and be reading in seconds. (See Related Products for our PEARL and OpenBook package).

 

Mark Up Your Documents.

Use the Highlight feature to mark important passages of a document for later reference and to quickly navigate within your document. You also can insert comments in a document and have those comments remain hidden or be announced during document review. You can even export Highlights and Comments to new documents.

 

Reformat Text for Easier Reading.

Once your page has been captured, you have multiple options for viewing the information. You can display the text so that it wraps on the screen, enlarge the font, change the font style, and change the foreground and background colors. Have the individual words spotlighted as they are spoken.

 

Lightning Fast Page Acquisition - and No Page Scan Mistakes

OpenBook captures up to 20 pages per minute. Its built-in motion detection prevents snapping a picture until a page is turned and is perfectly still.
