Option OCR

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. 

See video about the in-app purchase:

The OCR-processed text is read by Google´s built-in reading program, ChromeVox. With ChromeVox running, you can step through all your OCR-processed documents and you can navigate row by line, word for word or letter by letter.

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.
