Pearl camera


Don H
 

Anyone got any experience with using the Pearl Camera versus a flat bed scanner for use with Jaws 2018? Just got the notice that the Pearl camera is on sale for users of Jaws 2018. Is the Pearl easier to use? Does it produce better scanning results over a flat bed scanner?
Thanks

The Pearl is portable and is much more suitable for books.

Hi,
I have used the Pearl camera from the time it came out for purchase. It was
half the price as an introductory offer. The camera works real great and I
had no complaints except for its fragility. It is great for its portability,
picture rendering abilities and it does function as advertised. I guess it
is all that and a bag of chips. Now the cons, in the past before this sale,
I suggested to my consumers not to acquire one due to the cost at over
1200bucks. For my consumers, it was a whole lot cheaper to go on EBay and
purchase a portable flatbed scanner for under 100bucks and get the same
functionality at an extremely lower cost. The camera is just what it is,
portable camera. The portable scanner was just as practical and thin enough
to fit in a laptop bag and consume about the same amount of space on your
desk as an opened Pearl camera scanning a sheet of paper. I've personally
haven't seen the new price; but the purchasing of the Pearl camera is a
choice of preference in my opinion. Let's face it the purchasing of adaptive
technologies is economics first followed by functionality coupled with
practicability; Also, some portable flatbed scanners has more features than
just scanning that can be helpful in other areas as far as independent
computing. Bottom line get as much bang for your bucks.

From my experience, the Pearl camera only works with Openbook. It cannot be
used with other scanning applications. If anyone knows different, let me
know.

Hi again,

I just looked at my Pearl camera in its carrying case and it is bulkier
than the my portable flatbed scanner when it is in my laptop bag.

I would be interested to know whether it's possible to save the images and process them with another application. I suspect not, but I don't know for sure.

According to what I've read, JAWS 2018 can now use the camera directly in its OCR function. I haven't bought one, but I did notice the VFO advertisement. I'm particularly interested in scanning printed mail, and I may also need reliable book scanning in the future.

Openbook can save images in TIFF format, so I guess you could scan with
Openbook, and then recognize with some other application -- but why bother?
Openbook will just read them directly.

The Email I received offering the Pearl for $295 was for all Jaws 2018 and 2018 fusion customers and said the pearl would work with Jaws 2018. I see it that FS has incorporated part of Open Book into Jaws 2018 and Open Book is on its way out. Of course Open Book hasn't been updated for years.

Don,

Yes, I see that now. However, more to my point, is that the Pearl camera
still cannot be used with other scanning applications, as in the case of
Epson or other flatbed scanner hardware. That's where the real value of the
Pearl camera would shine. VFO seems to want to keep that piece of hardware
proprietary to their own software -- kind of an Apple paradigm.

Don and all,

Using JAWS 2018 latest build, I just gave my Pearl camera a trial run. Quite
impressive, and yes it may signal the end of any future Openbook support.
That is somewhat unfortunate, as Openbook has a very rich set of features in
settings and configurations. I'll keep my Openbook 8 and 9 copies for as
long as they run on Windows.

However that aside, OCR using the Pearl camera or a connected flatbed does
offer a very convenient way to scan physical document on demand without
needing Openbook.

Also note that it is now possible to recognize many document types right
from the file listing in Windows Explorer, which to me, is a much more
significant improvement in the Convenient OCR application.

But again, I don't see anywhere that the Pearl camera can be used with other
mainstream applications as an input device. Therein lies my continuing
criticism.

Anyone got any experience with using the Pearl Camera versus a flat bed
scanner for use with Jaws 2018? Just got the notice that the Pearl
camera is on sale for users of Jaws 2018. Is the Pearl easier to use?
Does it produce better scanning results over a flat bed scanner?
Thanks

Yes, the Pearl camera works with JAWS 2018. I ordered one yesterday. I received an email and I also had a JAWS notice. That is why it is on sale for $295.00 right now. I tried to enter the code but it didn't work so I called VFO and ordered it. Hopefully, it will come soon.

Isn't the Pearl camera supposed to work with the latest JAWS OCR?

Well, I don't see how openbook can go away yet, as they would have to
take all features and move them to jaws before they can discontinue,
and I don't see that happen.
