It's almost ironic that you

SayText is an app designed
> especially for the visually impaired and by the way, it's free!
> In a few words to describe it's use, you need to place the iPhone on
> the center of a document. There's a big button for starting the tool,
> tap it. 
Slowly elevate the iPohne upwards from the document until you
> hear an beep sound - this indicates, that the document is now fully in
> frame and the camera will shoot automatically, when the picture is
> stable / focused. 
Now only thing you have to do, is to wait for a
> while (You can tap the screen to hear the OCR progress, e.g. OCR
> 35%). 
When the OCR is ready you can start the voiceover to read the
> document out loud.
> The app should come to Appstore in a week or so.
> We're happy to give you more info about SayText. There is a website
> for SayText: 
http://www.docscannerapp.com/saytext/
> There's also a video, where Mr. Heikki Ekola, totally blind person
> uses it. He's representing the Finnish Federation of the Visually
> Impaired - You can find the video here:
> 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlWJF27IdX4
> This video is also at the SayText homepage.
> We hope you'll find this app useful and if so, please tell to your
> friends about it!
> Your's sincerely,
