I don't think OpenBook is the equal of Kurzweil 1000. Neither product is really being developed, but I'm glad I have K1000, because when I tried OpenBook, results weren't as good. Reading books is far easier with one of these programs, or perhaps a desktop off-the-shelf program, than with a phone.

I use my IPhone with Voice dream Scanner for quick scans of mail or to
quickly find out what an item on my desk is. It is remarkably accurate .
But for important items I do use a flat bed scanner.

Honestly, my opinion is that scanning material with a flatbed scanner is
always going to be a bit easier than using a phone unless you have a stand
that can position your phone in a stationary location. Even then starting
a scanner from a PC keyboard and using that keyboard to quickly save a
document or copy and paste that scanned text into another document is, at
least for me, a much faster and more efficient experience. There may be
others who feel differently about this and I'd be interested in hearing
their perspective.

scanning apps for the phone, or things like envision AI?
