SayText: a Free, Accessible OCR App for Blind iPhone Users

SayText reads aloud the text in the image that it creates with the iPhone. It is intended for visually impaired users. It is a free spin off product from the DocScanner team.
  1. Place the iPhone in the center of a document and double-tap the “Take picture” button.
  2. Slowly elevate the iPhone upwards from the document, until the whole document is in picture. A beep sound indicates, that the document has been detected. The camera will shoot automatically when focused.
  3. While the OCR is running, tap the screen to hear the progress status.
  4. When the OCR is ready, swipe right on the screen to listen to the document.
