Hello Mr. Ramkrishna,

The software is still not released, but when I checked with Mr. Ram Agrawal,
he says that they will be selling it when it is available.

You would need other softwares such as mobile speak to use other functions
of the phone, but for KNFB reader itself, no other software is required, it
has it's own synthesiser.

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.
