  • Why is there no formatting?

    By Turner42
    seeing AI is free and maintains the bulk of formatting when scanning a document. Prismo Go is free and maintains the bulk of Formatting. Prizmo full is $10 and maintains the bulk of formatting. Why should anyone spend $100 and not get formatted results? Yes, it is easier to save documents and create multi-page documents with KNFB Reader, but is that really worth $100 without formatting?

  • Give it a chance

    By Blind dog Jimmy
    I've got to say… This app is well worth the money… I was hesitant to purchase… But… Now… I realize I could not live without it… it takes a little patience to learn how to use it… I go through my mail… And if I have something that I am not sure about… I save it in a little pile for when my sided friends come around… this does not happen very often and makes for a much more enjoyable visit when my friends come over and do not have to spend an hour and a half reading the mail… if you have a good light and a steady hand… It works pretty good… Would recommend to anyone who cannot read with their eyeballs
