Text Detective is a fully accessible app that reads text from the camera in your phone or tablet within seconds. Point the camera and sort through mail, read menus, cards, product packages, medication labels, and all kinds of other print around you. The text can easily be read, edited, copied and pasted into documents, emails or other apps. It even keeps the text in a history for future use. Text Detective works best with the clean and crisp text you find in documents, and at a distance of about the length of a forearm. You can use it where veryou go - no need for network coverage – it even works on the plane. The creation of this product was supported in part by SBIR grants from the National Institutes of Health (grants no. EY011821 and EY020707). Text Detective by Blindsight is covered by U.S. Patent No. 7,817,855, and pending US and international patents.
