BALTIMORE, May 15, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The world's best print-reading app for the blind and print-disabled is now even better. The National Federation of the Blind and Sensotec NV announced today that KNFB Reader Version 3.0 is now available in the Apple App Store.
Since its first release in 2014, KNFB Reader has been allowing users all over the world to get access to print anytime and anywhere. The latest version of this award-winning app, KNFB Reader 3.0, sports a whole new look and feel to help users work better and faster. Navigation within the app is easier, with tabs at the bottom of the home screen to access the major screens and functions quickly and easily.
In addition to the industry-leading print recognition and conversion technology that users already love, KNFB Reader 3.0 now reads e-books and documents in the increasingly popular ePub format, as well as PDFs (image or text, tagged or untagged). This makes it ideal for students and professionals who must read content in multiple formats from multiple sources. The app is also customizable, so that people with different reading needs can tailor its settings to meet those needs. Now able to recognize and read documents in over thirty languages, KNFB Reader 3.0 is a comprehensive reading solution for people who are blind or who have low vision, dyslexia, or other reading differences.
"The National Federation of the Blind has been at the forefront of developing technology to help blind people access print for more than forty years," said Mark Riccobono, President of the National Federation of the Blind. "We have learned that, as with many accessible technologies, our leading-edge reading solutions benefit more than just blind people. KNFB Reader 3.0 represents the continued evolution of this technology, which now has more features fitting a wider variety of users than ever."
KNFB Reader 3.0 is a free update for existing customers. For new customers, the app is now available for USD $99.
