What is ZoomReader?

In combination with your iOS device's built-in camera, ZoomReader lets you magnify and read printed text by first taking a picture of an object like a book or menu, then converts the image into text using state-of-the-art Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. ZoomReader will then read the text back to you using a natural-sounding voice.

ZoomReader isn’t just for books – it can be used to read small print on a receipt, box, menu, or pill bottle – wherever there’s small text you can’t read yourself. Whether you’re on the go or you’re using ZoomReader to help you read a newspaper in the comfort of your living room, this quick and powerful program does everything a dedicated video magnifier can do – from the convenience of your iOS device and at a much lower price.

If you have trouble reading printed text, ZoomReader can help by allowing you to change the foreground and background colors, making everything easier on your eyes plus you can simultaneously adjust the magnification level. ZoomReader also leverages the iOS device’s built-in accessibility features such as Zoom and VoiceOver, and offers an affordable and easy to use solution in an all-in-one mobile device.
