Some questions about using the Prizmo Go app

Forum
iOS & iPadOS

Hi! I was wondering, I have recently downloaded Prizmo Go, and I am wondering, does anyone know when you are on the camera screen, what the haptic feedback is for? Also, how do you know when the full document is in the viewfinder. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I believe the haptic feedback is to let you know when you're holding the device level in which ever orientation you're holding it. As for knowing whether you have the full document in view, it's possible that information is given by the "scene description" functionality, but I'm not sure. In the most recent version of Prizmo Go, the "scene description" functionality is accessed either by double-tapping the button labelled "scene description" or by pressing the volume down button on your device.

Hello. To tell how much of the document is in view, listen for the numbers after pressing the scene description button. For instance, if you hear something like, ten lines of text are visible, text coverage is 100 percent, this likely means the entire document is in view. The bigger the numbers, the more text is in focus. You can press volume down for scene description and volume up to take the picture and recognize text. Hope this helps.

Thanks very much! I really appreciate your help! I'm looking into possibly purchasing KNFB reader. As I've heard it's a great app.
