Welcome to Bridges Canada!
MagniLink ChromeViewer is an innovative software for Chromebook that is used to display the image from a MagniLink reading camera system. The software controls the reading camera’s features, such as magnification, artificial colours and brightness, and provides the user with the facility to make individual adjustments for the best possible experience.
MagniLink ChromeViewer is designed for Chromebooks and is easily downloaded from Chrome Web Store.
To your software you can choose an option that allows you to OCR-process a text and get it read aloud. This gives a more relaxed reading, increases reading speed and you will also be able to read longer texts. To access OCR for MagniLink ChromeViewerTM you make an in-app purchase in the MagniLink ChromeViewer app. The OCR feature is then connected to the Google Account used for the purchase. This means that you can use ChromeViewer and the OCR function at any Chromebook.

LVI has tested the software on a number of Intel-based Chromebooks without problems, but there is no guarantee that the system will work with all Chromebooks.
There is similar software, although not with exactly the same functionality, for PC and Mac respectively. When MagniLink S Premium and MagniLink Pro are purchased, the software is included. The software can be purchased as an option for many of LVI's other reading cameras.
