Hi all,

I really got excited to know about it, KNFB has developed software which can
be installed on N82 as it has 5 mega pixel camera. Although they only say it
works with N82, I think it should also work with N95.

I have yet not tried this software, and I am not sure about it's price, but
it's approximate  price is 1500 dollars.

knfb Reading Technology, Inc. is pleased to announce the latest breakthrough
in print accessibility. We have developed software which places the
functionality of a reading machine into a multifunction cell phone. The
Mobile Reader products can be activated and ready to use with the touch of a
single button on the phone. The user takes a photo of the print to be read
and the character recognition software in conjunction with high quality
text-to-speech will read the contents of the document aloud. At the same
time, it can display the print on the phone's built-in screen and highlight
each word as it is spoken.

The Mobile Reader Product Line:
 Reads most printed documents, from letters and memos to pages in a book .
Reads address labels and package information and instructions . Easily
recognizes U.S. currency . Displays each sentence visually and highlights
each word as it is read . Stores thousands of pages using easily obtainable
flash memory . Transfers text files to and from computers or Braille note
takers . Adjusts reading speed to suit user's preference.

In addition, with the use of a screen reader, the user can access the other
functions of the phone device including making and receiving phone calls,
personal information management such as contacts, calendar, etc. Also
contains ability to run accessible GPS programs, access to Adobe PDF files,
voice recorder, music player and much more.
