The trouble is that the rear camera on a phone is like five times
better than most laptop cameras.
I still use K1000 for anything I really want scanned well, my
iPhone with various apps works fine to find a bar code, see who
the envelope is from, identify a color or whatever.

I use seeing AI to sort mail and packages, and to read labels
that don't have a barcode.
Those could be brought to a laptop camera easy enough.

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
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

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.
Other than openbook nine, what are
some ways to scan print documents and read them?
I do have a pearl scanner.
I have windows 10 and jaws 2019.
