A new iPhone app, KNFB Reader, allows blind people to listen to an audio read-back of printed text. Thanks to the relationship between Raymond Kurzweil, an artificial-intelligence scientist and senior Google employee and the National Federation of the Blind as well as Sensotec NV, this $99 life-changing app was created. People with refreshable Braille displays can also use the app to snap a picture of printed text and have it transformed into Braille instantaneously. This app will also be available soon for Android phones. The possibilities of this KNFB Reader are endless, giving blind people a new level of engagement in everyday life, from skimming magazines to reading menus in restaurants.
