Ricky Enger Demonstrates Serotek’s DocuScan Plus On Tek Talk Monday, January 31, 2011
Easy access to the printed word has long been a significant challenge facing those who are blind or print-disabled. The need to scan and read printed information is not restricted to a single location, and for this reason it is important to have a tool which can access printed documents just as easily from a public computer with no assistive technology installed as it is to access at home. Ricky Enger of Serotek Corporation will join us to discuss and demonstrate software from Serotek enabling computer users to scan and read paper documents and PDF’s anytime, anywhere.
We’ll explore Serotek’s DocuScan Plus, an affordable and easy-to-use piece of software which can scan printed materials and convert them to text, daisy books, or MP3’s for access on a portable device. We’ll demonstrate how previously scanned documents can be saved to a hard drive, or to a centralized location for easy retrieval from any computer, regardless of whether it has other assistive technology installed.
Following the demonstration, the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions about this self-voicing OCR application which can be used at home, work, and even in the classroom.
