Aim at text. Shoot. It's yours! Prizmo Go lets you quickly grab text with the camera. After text is recognized in a blink of an eye, you can interact with it in many useful ways. Or just send it to other apps. And if you've got a Mac, you can even copy/paste it there. No more retyping. Feels like magic, just at your fingertips.

Additionally, Prizmo Go provides rich interactions with the captured text. After shooting, text from the original picture is revealed, and swiping through it allows fast and accurate text selection directly from the image. Selected text can then be read aloud, or you can tap to browse to any printed website address, call phone numbers, trigger Mail app from an email address, or even reveal physical address in Apple Maps and initiate navigation to that place.

Prizmo Go comes with enhancements specifically built for VoiceOver, in addition to spoken guidance prior to shooting. That, combined with its text-to-speech capabilities, make it a great companion in case you need help reading printed documents.

crick boo ,

Pretty good for the basic options.

Scans my textbook very well, only a few mistakes were presented (such as embellished first letters were not picked up [ 𝔗he = he]). Copying function is appreciated.

Some tips for the more complex options (premium package):

-translator function can be inaccurate.
-handwriting to text cannot work for most organic handwritings (i'm not sure about cursive though)

Developer Response ,

Hello. Handwriting recognition from an image (off-line recognition, as opposed to on-line, where the full path and timing data are available) is a very hard problem that was mostly non-working until recent advances in machine learning. The technology to process handwriting is improving rapidly, and we opted to offer it as soon as possible, even though it’s really just the beginning, as it can help in certain situations. Also, you can go to Prizmo Go's FAQ section here where we have given some tips on how to improve handwriting recognition: Regarding your issue with the recognition of printed text, you can also try the Cloud OCR (free trial available within the app) which is usually more accurate. Although the recognition of embellished first letters remains difficult for an OCR engine. /TC

Useless as a free app

This app is just a preview for showing you that it’s capable of doing but it’s supposed to. But unless you pay it is a truly useless It will only let you copy and paste five words or so. It does seem to work well. However, a free alternative is Google translate which you can use to translate English to English for example and it will just transcribe the written text from English to English on your screen and then you can cut-and-paste it and use it as you will. You’re welcome for the advice :-)

Developer Response ,

Hello. Prizmo Go comes as a free app to let users try built-in OCR as well as Cloud OCR via the free trial before buying. We have determined that a number of users preferred it that way, instead of paying first and then possibly be disappointed. Kind regards. /TC
