KNFB Reader Mobile

KNFB Reader - Home

This was one of the items that got my attention at the CSUN Assistive Technology Conference in March. It is a cell phone with the ability to take a picture of a book, magazine, or other printed text, run the picture through the Kurzweil software and speak the words aloud. It is targeted for people who have difficulty reading due to learning disabilities or people that are blind or with low vision.
One thing I especially like about this device is that it is unobtrusive. People do not have to carry an awkward or additional piece of equipment with them.
This was developed as a joint venture between Kurzweil Technologies and the National Federation of the Blind.
