Amedia Corporation, a Japanese assistive technology company, has released an rebranded and updated version of its OCR app for iOS. Amedia Live Reader offers realtime OCR in a variety of languages and can be used to read both printed documents and objects further away such as street signs, according to the press release.
Amedia demoed iYomube, a previous iteration of this app, at CSUN 2015 and our podcast yielded rather mixed results. This version is targeted more for an international audience and uses the popular ABBYY Mobile OCR Engine for its optical character recognition. The app is available now for $29.99 from the iTunes App Store.
