It really seems more of a mobile device solution to me, I guess on a Windows PC you could use a barcode reader, an external scanner for OCR and some sort of camera for things like currency etc., but I honestly don't think I would ever want to use it, I don't think, for example, I'd like to drag my laptop around if I wanted to use the Light Detector channel and I'd much rather hold my iPhone up to a document I want to use the short text channel on than to try and hold the document up to some camera.

Seeing AI is not on Android because Microsoft has chosen not to make it for Android.

I am not sure why they have not made it for Windows.  That would be a good question for seeingai@...

I wonder why app like seeing AI is not available on android. And I think is not available on windows too.

Yes, available through Microsoft store.  Simple installation and uses Microsoft voices.

The other mobile apps you mention are good especially Seeing AI.

I didn't know that there was KNFB for windows.

I'd pay 10 for it, but not a hundred, as was mentioned, when there are good IOS apps.

K-NFB Reader for Windows is reliable.  While not as flexible in terms of different ways to scan I find the K-NFB reader very good and a lot more updated than OpenBook.

Openbook has not been updated in years and I suspect that Freedom will abandon the product as JAWS and other apps, Seeing AI, continue to do well with scanning and OCR.
