Vision impaired, blind and learning-disabled users can hear printed text including menus, documents, signs and receipts.

The initial version reads and speaks both French and English.
For those who want help reading, the system combines intelligent image-processing software with text-to-speech and text-tracking features so they can enlarge, read, track and highlight text on the phone's large display.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
