I can't imagine using apps like seeing AI or Envision by taking a screenshot would be very intuitive, but it does help with reading some on-screen text, as long as the backgrounds are good contrast to the text. A simpler thing would be to stream from your Xbox to your PC (if you have one) and use NVDA's recognize text feature. That's been really helpful for the text reading - at least most of the time. Not sure if the MAC has anything comparable. I would absolutely love one day for Voiceover to have OCR capabilities. Imagine being able to render a virtual image of the screen you're on and have Voiceover navigate the text on it.

Absolutely. I'm not quite sure of any interesting ways of us using this app yet but it's good that it is so accessible.

And yes, I use the NVDA solution on my bootcamp windows system which is a good work around.
