Re: knfb and NVDA
I use ABBYY FineReader 12 Pro at work, and I can confirm that it can be used effectively with a screen reader. It also recognizes the structure of a document, including headings, lists and footnotes.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The latest version is FineReader 14. If anyone has had experience with it under NVDA or another screen reader, I would be interested in a report of your findings. So far as I am aware, the main alternative is OmniPage, now owned by Nuance. I don't know how accessible it is, so I can't comment here except to note it.

I have the iOS version also. My comments about it would be exactly the same as what I said about the Windows app. Character recognition is good and fast, but it is not usable for material where layout is important.
For a quick and dirty it is fine or if layout is not important. I would not recommend it for scanning books that you want to keep. I use Abbyy FineReader on my desktop for that.
I think the app is way over-priced at its full price of around $100. I only bought it at its much reduced price and knowing what I know now, I certainly would not pay more than that. If you have $100 to spend, get FineReader; it does a far superior job for the same money and is perfectly accessible.
On the Smartphone KNFB is probably the best option, but I think it, too, is over-priced given its limitations.
