Summary

Scans and recognises text documents, bills, business cards, whiteboards, etc, then allows the text to be shared across computers and with other people through the ‘cloud’. Saves the user from having to type text. Extracts information (such as first and last names, company, job title, phone numbers, email, website, address) to create contacts on the phone, or to be shared. No Internet connection is required for image processing. A text-to-speech facility that lets the app read out aloud any scanned texts (choice of 35 voices in 10 languages) is available through a further in-app purchase.

Reviews

Reviewer: Patient group specialising in learning disorders, Canada
Review: “Good for reading disabilities. You can take a picture of text, crop it, and use to scan a document, and also use text-to-speech, to hear the text. ”

Reviewer: Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), UK
Review: “App of the Month for us. Great for scanning and performing optical-character recognition (OCR) on text documents. It works best with printed material. As with most OCR apps, handwriting recognition can be problematic, but ‘Prizmo’ is great for when a letter pops through your door, or you need to read a text document while out and about. What really sets ‘Prizmo’ apart from the crowd, though, are the additional features it offers: scan bills and receipts, and get ‘Prizmo’ to help you with working out how to split the cost if you’re out with friends. Scan business cards, and have the information automatically added to a new or existing contact (for instance, names, phone numbers and email addresses). Upload your scanned documents directly to popular services, such as ‘Dropbox’ and ‘Evernote’. Translate documents using Microsoft ‘Translate’. Great if you’re on holiday abroad.”
