Hi Steve.

Well, this product hopefully should make the whole process of lining up etc. 
redundant, I look forward to being able to use my IPhone on the go as a 
scanner with the consummate ease a sighted person would.

Hi,

Prismo is the one I got the least good results on.  That's why I say Saytext 
and Text Detective.  And I'm pretty good at lining up cameras, having used 
KNFB Reader and Beyo OCR on Symbian phones.

All the best

Steve

HI Muzz.

Two that immediately spring to mind, SayText and Prizmo, however any oCR app
that you use and which works for you will do just as well, the stand doesn't
discriminate.

All the best, Ibrahim.
