Award-Winning Text Recognition App that Gives the Blind Access to 
Print Now Available on Android
We are happy to announce the release of the new KNFB Reader app for 
Android.  The KNFB Reader converts printed text into high quality 
speech to provide accurate, fast, and efficient access to both single 
and multiple page documents with the tap of a button.  First released 
for iOS in 2014, the app is now available for purchase in the Google 
Play app store.  It offers a "try before you buy" option of 25 scans 
free of charge.  Additionally, to celebrate the Android release, the 
KNFB Reader app will be available for a very limited time on both iOS 
and Android platforms for $74.99, a savings of 25% off the regular price.
Why this app?  The KNFB Reader is an easy, fast, accurate, and 
efficient text recognition mobile app that delivers near 
instantaneous results.  Tired of being unsure what's been charged to 
your credit card? Want to know who sent you that package?  Need 
nutritional information from a food label?  Find a book that's not 
available on NLS?  Buy a new appliance and want to access the user's 
manual?  KNFB Reader is your go-to:  it has reading modes for books, 
articles and labels, and bills and memos.   Worried about getting a 
good photo of your text as a blind person?    KNFB Reader provides a 
field of view report and tilt guidance for more accurate capturing of 
print in the photograph, as well as automatic text detection.  You'll 
get the right photo; KNFB Reader will help you.  The app allows for 
high quality digital output to speech or connected Braille 
displays.  The scanned material can be imported as .jpg or .pdf, or 
exported in .txt and .html formats.  Not much space on your 
phone?  No problem.  Use cloud storage for your files via Dropbox or 
Google Drive!  The app also has a batch scan mode to process and read 
multiple page documents such as manuals or books.  Don't let print be 
out of your reach ever again.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the 
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise 
the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create 
obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life 
you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
