The modern day cell phone has emerged as a true champion for helping people with disabilities gain access to the world around them. So many apps have amazing OCR abilities which can turn printed text in digital text which can then be accessed by someone who is blind or has low vision. The struggle is to accurately scan a full sized document. Most blind specific apps will give you voice guided help but it’s still a difficult task especially when scanning multiple pages. I would love some help in creating a minimal cost portable scanner using a few 3D printed parts or using cardboard or other easily found materials so that struggling departments all over could easily re-create for there kids who could benefit from this.
