Text Detective

Text Detective

Text Detective is an application for the iPhone and Android that can detect text and read it aloud–whether it’s a nearby sign, a handout, or any other document. The application uses the phone’s camera, and our patented text detection algorithm analyzes the video stream and tells you whether there is text or not. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and VoiceOver parse the text that was found and read it aloud, all within seconds.
