KNFB Reader gives you instant access to print anytime and anywhere.
KNFB Reader 3.0 is a rapid and efficient text recognition app. Its text-to-speech, text-to-Braille, and text highlighting tools make it valuable for blind, low-vision, dyslexic, and others with reading differences.
Use it to import or take a photo of anything containing text. Take a photo and the app reads text out loud or displays it on a connected refreshable Braille display. Read with more ease thanks to the simultaneous highlighting of the sentence and word that is being read on the picture or in the plain text document. The app helps you get a good photo with special alignment tools, including spoken and vibration guidance. Snap multiple pages, such as a book, for later reading.

Hi this App has stopped opening up, please can you sort as I need this for work. I’m running iso14 on iPhone 10. There’s obviously a bug that needs fixing.
I have just tried deleting the app and reinstalling it. Now it works fine except I have lost all my work. Why does it not save to apple cloud?
Six Star App! Dyslexic students must-have.
This is an incredibly powerful, accurate and user-friendly app. I have used Claro-read on my PC for several years and this is definitely up there with it in the quality stakes. The great advantage is that I can dip in and out of books and skim read like other students, without having to scan entire chapters as PDFs first. You can even use it in the library with a pair of headphones. Stunning. The only thing I would improve is the functionality for saving documents you have just scanned/red, which I haven’t got my head round yet. (48 hours after downloading, still head over heels in the honey moon!)
Voice-over support is crippled. Accuracy gone downhill
For a number of years this application was fantastic but after the Version three, voice-over doesn’t read elements properly and accuracy of reading and scanning is crippled massively. If I were totally blind I would I will advise avoiding this application until the developers acknowledge the problems. Very disappointed in what was a fantastic application until version 2.91.
