I think Andha also has religious significance. Andha is the husbabd of Andhi
who were blindparents to Sarwan kumar who was responsible for what happened
in the Ramayana.

The word "Andha" is the literal translation of the world "blind", so if
we're ready to accept the same in English, why not in Hindi! Kindly broaden
your intellectual faculty! Actually the term Blind caries a very wider
connotation, you could be blind by your eyes, you could be blind by mind, or
even understanding. Whereas, the terms like visually handicapped, visually
impaired denote a specific meaning.So we are not objecting the same in
English and it is widely used in the above mentioned language, what's wrong
then with the Hindi term? We should be objective enough.

For Immediate Release:


Freedom Scientific Releases New and Improved OCR Recognition Software
for JAWS and OpenBook



Today, Freedom Scientific, one of the world’s leading screen reading
and blindness product makers, has just recently developed and released
a new breakthrough in its line of products of assistive technology for
blind and visually impaired computer users.


Have you ever wanted to take OpenBook® with you at all times anywhere
you can possibly go with it? Or even better, have you always wanted to
be able to pick up a handwritten note on a piece of paper and be able
to read it instantly just like anybody else? Or maybe you are one of
those frustrated students that are inundated with printed or
handwritten material that you can’t read in or out of a classroom
setting and you have to wait even hours or days for somebody to read
to you. Maybe you are at a conference, you are given a business card
or a simple handout that is important, and you need to fill out or
read along?


Well, wish and wonder no more! Freedom Scientific now has the solution!


Due to popular demand, and numerous emails and feedback requests from
our users, Freedom Scientific has decided to step forward.


We have released a new, updated, and improved OCR recognition engine
for both, our Openbook® and JAWS® products. This bran new release
includes many new features, which include, but not limited to:


* The ability to recognize smaller type font and better recognition of
columns in sophisticated tables, which can easily be confusing to
read.
* The ability to recognize print on smaller pieces of print paper,
such as note slips or contact cards on the spot, with better print
focus and not the scanner bed or camera.
* Finally, the ability to recognize handwriting with about 85-90% accuracy!


Yes, that’s right! Our new OCR engine has built-in support for
handwriting recognition. That means that you can either scan or place
a handwritten note from a co-worker, a spouse, or from a door, into
your camera or scanner of your choice, and Openbook® will
automatically recognize it and be able to read it with speech and / or
Braille output from your preferred synthesizer or Braille display! Not
only this. You can open a .pdf, .jpg, or .png image that someone sent
you with handwriting over the email on your computer, perform the OCR
recognition command (JAWS 13 and later only), and bingo! You will hear
the handwriting being spoken out to you or sent to your Braille
display. Please note that these new features offered by this improved
version of the OCR engine for JAWS® or OpenBook® software are only
compatible with Openbook versions later than 8.0 and JAWS version 13.0
or later. Please note users of JAWS earlier than 13.0, we will release
a version of the new OCR engine that we released with JAWS 13.0 later
this month, with the same features as the ones offered now, so you
aren’t left out on these new features! This update to the OCR engine
can work with both 32- and 64-bit operating systems.


Want some even more awesome news from our OpenBook® development team?
We have released OpenBook Mobile®, a scanning and reading solution app
for your iOS device! This means that you can use our popular scanning
and reading solution right from your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, using
VoiceOver and the camera of your device! Yes, that’s right, OpenBook®
is going mobile, and you will be able to take it anywhere you go that
you find printed material that you cannot read. You will be able to go
on a trip, be given an airport boarding pass, and you will no longer
need sighted assistance to see whether your plane was gone before you
knew it, or to see your flight information. You will be able to go to
a church service and be able to access printed booklets of hymns or
group prayers easily and independently without requesting sighted
help. Even more fantastic, you will be able to walk into a classroom
door that appears to have no one waiting with you, bump into a little
sticky note with your finger below or above the Braille marking of the
classroom number, and not have to wait so many hours and precious
study time trying to find out if the instructor canceled the class or
whatever other scheduling conflict that might have occurred with that
instructor. If you have an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, you will get it
out, snap a photo of that little sticky note, and you will be able to
find out what’s wrong quickly, independently  and immediately with the
built-in handwriting recognition of the OCR engine for OpenBook
Mobile®! It’s so easy!


Currently, OpenBook Mobile® for iOS platforms is available at the
Apple iTunes store and it costs $2.99. This app is designed to fit any
budget. So, what are you waiting for? Purchase your OpenBook Mobile®
app for your iPhone / iPod / iPad now, and let your future shine
today! The power of technology and handwriting is in your hands, like
never before!


If you have any questions regarding these two new initiatives, don’t
hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-444-4443 or e-mail us at
support at freedomScientific.com. We would like to hear from you and your
feedback!


Sincerely,

The Freedom Scientific Team **************
