Voice Cam Version 1.1.0

On May 8, Voice Cam 1.1.0 was released. There is now voice guidance to
help with camera position and other improvements. Again, I tried this app
with and without the StandScan on pages of plain text. Occasionally,
I got a few garbled words but mostly it said “no words detected.”

There is a YouTube video called
Voice Cam: App
for Blind and Visually Impaired
showing a demonstration of the
Android version. It is reading dry cleaning instructions, signs, and that
sort of thing. I found a link to a similar one for the iOS version
but the video had been “removed by the user.”

If anyone is having success with this app, please post a comment
and let us know how you are doing it.

Voice Cam uses the iPhone’s video camera to detect text and speak
it aloud. It can speak in five different English-language accents
and the output can be set to one of three reading speeds. The
Developer says it will be useful for blind and visually impaired persons.

I have tried this app with and without the Standscan. While it
has been able to say a few words, I do not believe that this app
is sufficiently developed to be usable.
