    This is One of a few apps I use daily. Why? I like things that just work simply and reliably. voice Dream Scanner has a simple but powerful interface that makes reading things, all kinds of things, very fast and easy. Today, I have used it to read a piece of mail I received, identify a bottle of lotion I was given as a gift, identify several cans of fruit to find pineapple for a fruit salad, and read several pages from a magazine, an article that was suggested by a friend. I also used it to read the directions on the package of frozen food where the barcode scanner in Seeing AI failed to recognize the product. I own several scanning apps including the very expensive one put out by NFB. This is the scanning app that does the job for me nearly every time with no fuss and no friction. It's funny to me that this app costs a little over five dollars while the NFB app cost $100. This app works, without crashing, and without breaking the bank.

  • Best scanning app I have ever used, and I have used them all Feb 20, 2020

    By DarkSquared42
    I have tried pretty much all of the blind friendly scanning apps that have been available since 2012–including the famous one from that well-known blindness organization that doesn’t work nearly as well as its proponents claim it does. Out of all of them, I have found this one to have the best method of indicating the location of text for proper orientation of the device, and it also has very rapid recognition. Additionally, it uses local recognition and does not use the cloud, which is great for privacy. One strange and unusual problem I have just discovered with it, though most people won’t experience this, is that if you reset all settings on an iPhone, this app no longer seems able to generate the scan tone, or use the camera flash. The app must be deleted and reinstalled, which isn’t really a problem once you figure out what you have to do. That little oddity aside, this is truly a great app, and is worth 10 times the price. I know, Because I have paid 10 times the price for other scanning apps for the blind which were not nearly as good.

  • Definitely worth the investment. Jun 26, 2020

    Thanks to the Voice Dream Scanner, sorting thru mail and other paperwork is a breeze! I just purchased this app and put it thru its paces organizing the desk. I especially appreciate the variety of options for saving scan results for further reference, and found this app much more enhanced with features than other options currently available. If I could add one feature, it would be a button for checking page orientation. Even though the app automatically corrects this, sometimes it is really important to know the physical orientation of the page. Still, definitely worth the investment, and I look forward to using the Voice Dream Scanner for many years to come.

  • Voice Dream equals Phenomenal as Always Apr 2, 2019

    By Heavenwarrior
    As happens every time, I am once again blown away by this developer/s. For three years, Voice Dream Reader has remained the only tts app I continue to use every day. I have been waiting for a good affordable scanner app for the blind, and at last it has arrived. I am more greatful than I can say, and would have paid three times the price for this amazing app. I will be going to college later this year, and I am now feeling more confident about being able to access my future materials. Thanks so much Voice Dream Team!

  • Easy, straight forward. Sometimes choppy. Oct 1, 2020

    By bamcc35
    As an auditory learner, and a very slow reader, this app is helping me get my college degree. The only issues I’ve had are choppy reading when a word is split between two lines and occasionally it will read a word from a different line first, but I think the latter might be my photography and complicated page layouts (I’m ready a modern physics book). The voices are computerized, so it takes time to adapt to, but it really helps if you follow along in the text a few times to recognize it’s reading patterns. I really love this app, it’s easy to take pictures and there is a batch setting that allows you to take a series of pictures for the same file. Super fast way to get an audio book.

  • App Does Not Work-Perhaps Paid Reviewers Feb 24, 2020

    By collegestudent55
    Not that accurat .Very confused by all the five star reviews. I have tried this in a variety of light settings, purchased both this app and Voice Dream Reader, hoping they would be useful for my college studying, but the app is not very accurate for pages. It skips around and was reading the page number after the first line of the paragraph. Just bought it today and if I could I would definitely want a refund. Do not have that much money and was hoping that this would be useful and be worth it and it isn’t. I am wondering the competitor speech scanner is better...but that one is 140 to use for a year so hesitant.

  • Scanner is prone to Crash Sep 30, 2019

    By Montage523
    I love this technology and have been using it for a while, however this is prone to crash. I think this is something the developers are trying to remedy. If not, then I would be remiss to not mention it to folks putting down a few dollars. If you are patient, it scans and pairs well with VoiceDream. But man, again, does it crash. Just turn off the auto detect and wait till the page fully loads. Otherwise, you are scanning that page again. If they remedy the crash, I would give this a 5 easy. But they should be past that.

  • Love it! Mar 31, 2019

    I just downloaded it and ran a couple of tests, and it works amazingly well. It’s especially great when used (as designed) in conjunction with the Boice Dream app. My only suggestions for improvement are 1) Allow it I just downloaded it and ran a couple of tests, and it works amazingly well. It’s especially great when used (as designed) in conjunction with the Boice Dream app. My only suggestions for improvement are 1) Allow it to work on photographs previously on my device; and 2) The optional tone that can be played when an edge is detected could be a lot more quiet and subtle and pleasant and still be equally effective. It would be much more effective, actually, because I wouldn’t feel compelled to turn off that option. Let me suggest two tones: one quick, short (and pleasant) one for when an edge is first detected, and then another for when an edge is no longer detected—and silence the rest of the time.

  • Just what I needed, but glitchy af Oct 6, 2020

    By CelestialPanda14
    So this is a great companion app to Voice Dream that needs some improvement: Often when I am taking photos of pages, the app crashes and I lose a lot of my progress. This happens with regular capture mode at times, but always in auto capture, crashes every time and I lose like 10 page photos... Also, it's been fine for detecting text on my laptop but I tried to take a picture of a print book and the text detection was really wonky no matter how many times I tried to retake the picture, flatten/straighten it out, etc. I've been relying on this app because it makes my life with ADHD so much easier but I would love to see fixes for these issues. Thank you for making this app suite, I appreciate it.

  • Help please Nov 6, 2020

    By Omakayas 2007
    Hello everyone, my name is Faith Switzer. I depend on these apps to complete my schoolwork and for much more. The Voice Dream Pack, Reader, and Writer work very well for me, however, I have been having a problem and I was wondering if anyone else has been having the same problem and how they felt with it. My problem is that my Scanner app deletes important documents all on its own. I clear nonessential documents before taking pictures of new ones and it picks random times to delete my whole library of scanned pages. If anyone is having this problem or has had it in the past, will you please let me know how you fixed. This would be greatly appreciated. Faith Switzer

    By Katie reads a lot
    I am so thankful for this app because I have so much reading in grad school. I can scan chapters of my books and upload to the voice dream reader. However, if I try to scan too fast, the app will shut down and I will lose most or all of the pages I am in the process of scanning. This is extremely frustrating, as it takes so long to scan items when the app keeps shutting off. Also, the accuracy of reading seems to depend heavily on how well you took the scan (must be exactly straight on). If the page is curved in any way it usually messes up how voice dream reader reads through the text.
