[AI] bar code reader

I will also add that a very small bar code can actually contain text of a
whole page or many pages. Thus this bar code reader can acutually replace
OCR technology. A korian company demonstrated its use through a book which
had a bar code on upper right hand corner of the page and to read it all you
had to do was to keep a small device at the upper corner of the page and
click a button once and the information was sent to the laptop which started
reading the complete page. Since it was not OCR, it had no mistakes and
contained complete formatting including tables etc. Its wider use required
that every printed book should start containing the bar coded text of the
complete page on every page.

Thanks
Dipendra

Hi Mufi, Ashish & Anjali

They are 2 different products.

1 Talking bar code reader: It is a small hand held device which captures the
bar coded information and speaks it aloud by a software voice synthesizer.
It is microprocessor driven like a palm top.

2 Talking signage: It consists of 2 devices, a transmittor which gives out a
prerecorded information like a toilet entrance etc. The second is a small
reciever carried by blind person, when one comes in close proximity of the
transmittor, you hear it through the reciever like a radio. It is not micro
processor driven.

I think the NFB Kurzweil reader also has bar code reading capability.
