Using OCR for video displays and screens
I have an iPhone 6 S. This may be a crazy question, but has anyone used any kind of OCR or camera app to read a television screen or other displays? If so, which app works best?
When my Windows 7 laptop fails to boot properly, I have had good luck using the Video camera feature of Google Goggles. KNFB Reader works, too. I did once read the television screen with Google Goggles, but I could not hold the phone and the remote at the same time, so access to the menu didn't really help much.
Is Google Goggles still available for download from the ios app store? I didn't find it with a search.
In a demonstration, a presenter showed how he could use KNFB Reader to read a computer screen from several metres away with accuracy. A lot of people on this website and others have said that KNFB Reader is worth the purchase.
Would anyone happen to have a link for that above mentioned demonstration?
I have purchase KNFB reader for my IOS devices, and it is wonderful. Maybe I'll try it on screens.
There's been a few times when I've grabbed my phone and used KNFB Reader to see what's on the screen of a computer that's lost speech output or boots up muted. It helps to turn off the flash, and it usually does a good job. It won't help you select something from a complex menu on the computer, like the bios during boot, of course. LOL
Getting high quality OCR on a phone has made a huge difference in my life, by the way. Hope it works out for you.
Does anybody know of any good iOS software that would be able to read the screen in the musical keyboard? Would the KNFB reader be able to do this?
Now there is an app I would haply pay for, even if I had to save a year for it. One that could OCR a video display/TV screen and tell you what was selected in the menus would be something a lot of us would relish.
I agree and I want to know where the cursor is on my keyboard maybe someone can help out I have an iPhone 5 and I can't seem to get any higher than that
