#atia11: More Info on ZoomReader Obtained


We've obtained a bit more information and screenshots of ZoomReader, AI Squared's upcoming magnification and OCR product. From the description we've found, it appears to work with VoiceOver commands and also perhaps voice commands. Here's a further description after the jump, though remember that none of this has been made public by the company as of this writing.

The text reads:

ZoomReader will take a picture of your text, convert the image to text via state
of the art OCR technology, and then read the text back to you in a natural human
sounding voice.
All this in a simple, low-vision friendly solution that responds to VoiceOver commands
as well as VoiceControl

In addition, a screenshot of a settings dialog reveals controls for font size, highlight color, voice speed, and a voice button.
