  • Give it a chance

    By Blind dog Jimmy
    I've got to say… This app is well worth the money… I was hesitant to purchase… But… Now… I realize I could not live without it… it takes a little patience to learn how to use it… I go through my mail… And if I have something that I am not sure about… I save it in a little pile for when my sided friends come around… this does not happen very often and makes for a much more enjoyable visit when my friends come over and do not have to spend an hour and a half reading the mail… if you have a good light and a steady hand… It works pretty good… Would recommend to anyone who cannot read with their eyeballs

    I love this application. I am totally blind. I use it on a daily basis. I read all sorts of printed material. It is awesome. I would recommend it to anyone. Well worth the price.

    Although it took some time to get used to, this app has already proved to be well worth the price. It has fundamentally changed the way I read.
  • Great app.

    By Wade horton
    This is a great app for the visually and pay her. My only issue with this app right now, is that when you select Martha page document it does not let you type multiple pages only the first page. Please fix this problem. Will write a five when you fix them up to page document selection. Thanks.
  • I love this app

    I am a blind person for the first time ever I was able to open mail and have it read to me I am so thankful to have this app
  • Definitely worth the money

    By Subbinblazer
    The user interface for KNFBReader Great compared to Prizmo. When comparing theKNFBReader app with other apps for more complicated documents it is superior. If you're scanning regular letters, thePrizmo App or TextGrabber plus translator will suffice. The advantage is thatKNFBReader Will also OCR text from the computer screen. Definitely worth the money even if you don't have any discounts by using gift cards are waiting for it to be on sale. This is not a biased opinion, it is based on comparison and experience. @TheBlindMan12v
  • The bomb!

    By Blind melon penis wrinkle
    Being blind and having a great item in my arsenal of adaptive technology is not only useful,it is a must. I strongly recommend this for anyone who has a visual disability. It seems a bit expensive but it is well worth the money for a one time purchase and no in app purchases. I did not even mention the convenience and easy to use and very fast translation.
  • A must have...

    By Broken eyes
    OK, simply put, if your visually impaired in anyway that you were not able to read text normally, I highly recommend this app, in fact, this app is far more superior to my Parul camera that I have on my computer. That being said, there are two issues, either that or huge but would be nice if they got fixed. 1. Batchmode - this mode allows you to take photos of multiple pages before the app processes the images into text to read to you. The problem is that this mode has a tendency to crash randomly, making the user have to routinely save the batch every 15–20 pages. 2. Photos - for whatever reason, this app holds onto the photos of the pages. This makes sense for legally blind users who want to see any photos that were on the page, but for the 95% of the rest of the time it makes this app a major memory hog if you use it a lot or if you use it to say scan a text book for school. I would really recommend the developers to give the option to delete the photos to help conserve memory on smart phones as well as when it backs up to the cloud. Side from those two things, yes the price is very steep but it is so worth it if you prefer to just have all of your visually impaired and blind tools on one device rather than walking around like Batman with the utility belt.
