Prizmo Go 2.0 – Instant Text OCR for iPhone and iPad

Creaceed announces today the release of Prizmo Go version 2.0, a major upgrade to their text capture app for iPhone and iPad. Prizmo Go 2.0 brings a new, more powerful, built-in neural network-based OCR in more languages, cloud-based handwriting recognition (English only), and translation to 59 languages.

 

Prizmo Go 2.0 is an innovative app that lets the user take a picture of printed or handwritten text and then recognizes it using optical character recognition (OCR) technology, avoiding the frustration of retyping it on screen. Part of said text can then be selected directly from the photo by swiping through it. Users can then interact with it or just copy/paste it to other apps or to the Mac.

 

Recognized text can be edited within the application, or read aloud with built-in speech synthesis. Information detected in the text such as website urls, phone numbers, email addresses, QR codes, or physical addresses can be specifically activated. Text translation to 59 languages is also available as a new feature of version 2.0.

 

Blind and low-vision users can also take full advantage of Prizmo Go 2.0, as not only does it propose extensive support for VoiceOver but it also brings specific features such as pre-shooting instructions, automatic angle correction, and automatic text-to-speech playback.

 

Prizmo Go 2.0 also introduces a new subscription model, as an addition to pre-existing options that remain valid (see details below).

 

New features in 2.0:
* Cloud OCR option in 26 languages, including Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and Arabic

Play With Puppies and Dolls in AR on iOS

 

Anya is a unique app. She is a doll that a child can bring into their life and interact with, tickle and dress her and her puppies. She can pet the puppies and play games with them too. With Apple’s ARKit, Anya and her puppies come to life in the real world. Anya and her puppies can be in a doll house, on a coffee table in the living room, on the kitchen table, or anywhere a child would like to play with them.

 

Anya is a cute little girl who dances, sings and plays interactive games like twirling a hula hoop, pop the bubbles and maracas. She repeats what you say. You can even dress her up and tickle her, she makes funny faces too! The puppies do everything a cute puppy does, fetch, sit, roll and dance!

 

This app uses the accelerometer creatively; a user can make Anya twirl the hoop if the he/she moves the phone in circles, stop and she drops the hoop. This app is loaded with interactive play, she blows the bubbles and the user can pop them with a tap or pop multiple bubble with simultaneous taps, tap her feet and she will dance, tap her nose and she makes a funny face and more. She is quite emotional too, just like all little girls! Making her definitely a fun-to-play-with app.
