AppleVis Extra #29: Shalin Shah, Developer of Voice - Take A Picture And Have It Spoken

Member of the AppleVis Editorial Team

In this edition of the AppleVis Extra, Thomas and Scott meet with Shalin Shah, developer of Voice - Take A Picture And Have It Spoken.

This free iOS app allows you to take a picture of anything that has text on it, and then have that text read to you within a few seconds. The app includes a number of advanced features that you might not expect to find on a free app, such as a book mode, a field of view report, auto-capture, Smart Crop, column detection and reading, document background cleaning, and a lot more.

Shalin tells us about the history of the app, it’s current state, and some of what he hopes to add and improve in future updates.

The story of Shalin and his app is even more compelling considering that he is a 15 year old High School student. If, like us, you are impressed with what he has achieved with this app, please be sure to let him know.
