any suggestions for scanning apps or ways to scan on iPhone

Forum
iOS & iPadOS
I'd like some help with knowing which is the best scanning app out there now, or which 2 or 3 are good right now. I downloaded prizmo because I heard and read that it was a good app and spent ten dollars on it, but even with sighted help cannot seem to get it to work right. I read on the app store that there is an app called SmartScan+OCR which includes a feature that detects the edges of the page and corrects the scann. I've noticed that the other scanning apps I have besides and including prizmo say detecting edges, but I'm not sure if I should move the iPhone or leave it still because its trying to correct the scan picture. Any suggestions would be helpfull, since as a blind individual I rae'lly need to read all the printed material out there.

Hi There are others scanners apps how ever I am not sure or i can't say which of them is better. Try SayText is free on apStore, it's similar at Prizmo. Others apps are: SmartScan, ImageToText

Hi Marco, do you have success with saytext? I certainly don't. I can't seem to ever get the entire page in focus.

Yes it works for me. I use Prizmo and Say text and I do have success with both but Prizmo when I scan the text something I won't read it right . With say text I do have results when It reads to me the address from the letters you just have to focus the camara where the address is at. And with Prizmo I like the app because when a do copy to a text it's a lot easier to forward to my contacts. . I haven't use smart scan image to text because say text and Prizmo have work for me

I've not had much luck with Prizmo or say text. Prizmo worked about once but the rest of the time I get jibberish or nothing.
