It seems to me, purely on the basis of experimentation, that LiveReader captures a narrower focus.  I sort of picture KNFB doing the job of a flatbed scanner and Livereader  using a smaller aperture. I use LiveReader to pinpoint expiration dates on food, ratings of light bulbs and capacities of batteries, not to mention text on LED and LCD displays where KNFB seems less manageable.  I do turn off the vibrations and the still mode, and use it purely as a live camera system all the way.

It has several features different to KNFB, to read my post. I use Live reader rather than KNFB. The whole experience just seems to be quicker. I would not like to respond to it’s worth because that is subjective.
