Message from the KNFB Team:
The National Federation of the Blind has been provided with a unique opportunity to see a product developed by the blind for the blind win a Golden Apple Award from AppleVis.
KNFB Reader has been nominated for a Golden Apple Award under Best Assistive App for 2015. Here is the description for KNFB Reader’s entry:
KNFBReader converts printed text into high quality speech to provide accurate, fast, and efficient access to both single and multiple page documents with the tap of a button on the iPhone. Picture accuracy is facilitated by a Field of View Report, Automatic Page Detection, and Tilt Control. When used with a document stand, the app will automatically detect when you turn the page of a book in the stand or insert a different sheet.
Read KNFBReader’s AppleVis iOS App Directory entry for more information.
Voting will close at 23:59 PDT on December 24, 2015 and is open to all registered users of the AppleVis website; if you are not already registered and would like to vote, you can create an account now. The voting form can be found here
(note that you will need to be logged in to see the voting form at the end of that post).
Thanks for your consideration and don’t forget to vote by Christmas Eve!
