Other Comments: 

This is a very unique OCR scanner. Unlike which would find in other such apps like the Text Detective and Prizmo. Those app are designed differently than what Voice Cam is to be used for. What it does is that it will identify each word separately. So don't take this as an OCR that will identify a whole sentence and such at once. With some practice and patience. I was able to successfully identify each word that I was scanning. However, you will need a steady hand and only need to move slowly so that you can identify each word that you are trying to identify. Overall, it works as advertised. It is a very simple app that does take some time to get used to in how it works. Remember it will only identify a single word at a time.
