Its a shame they only made it run on Windows 10. No idea why they did that.

hi jim

I brought the app it is very accessible with nvda with windows 10. it will also let you scan from your scanner it found mine just like that. you can also use the web cam if you have one. Plenty of options to choose from

I got mine when it was 30 kiwi dollars or was it a little bit less.

I thought thought the sale had ended maybe just here in new zealand.

There is also KNFB reader for windows 10. For the next week or so it is 80 percent off. In Australia I think the price is $29.95 at the moment. Has anyone tried it out?

I'm very skeptical that Kurzweil; or Openbook provide either better recognition or recognition that is better enough to pay those exhorbitant prices for.

Kurzweil uses fine reader as its OCR engine, anyway. What you gain is better fine tuning of the OCR process. With the commercial version of FR, this is done by drawing blocks around the image portion, highlighting and enhancing. In Kurzweil, you can do this by using its optimize scanning features, which can be useful for old documents and blurry print.
