What are Reading Machines?

Reading machines use cameras or scanners to capture images of text, optical character recognition (OCR) technology to translate it into digital format, and then text to speech software to speak what they see. Once printed text has been transformed into digital format, there are a wide range of ways that it can be accessed. See the Computing theme for more information on this.

Further information on reading machines and reading apps that work in a similar way to reading machines can be found on the Vital Tech website.
