A Document Camera for the Blind and Visually Impaired     Only $199 with free shipping!

TopOCR Reader has a very easy to learn Visually Accessible User Interface and a very powerful state-of-the-art OCR (Optical Character Reading) system that transforms text images into speech that can be played on a headset or saved on an MP3 Player or Flash Drive. It can read AND speak in eleven different languages (English, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish).

Even if your documents are placed sideways or upside down, TopOCR will always be able to read and display them in the proper reading orientation thanks to its automatic text orientation correction.

TopOCR Reader's Accessible User Interface is completely "self voicing" so it doesn't require an external screen reader. All OCR processing is performed locally on your PC, making the process faster and more convenient as well as making it possible for you to read documents in situations where you don't have access to a network connection.

TopOCR Reader is the ONLY document camera that is powered by TopOCR, proven to be the most accurate OCR software for document cameras.

Simple Rugged Hardware


TopOCR Reader stands less than 10 inches tall, weighs less than a pound and can scan a full A4 or Letter sized document in less than a second! It is built to be tough and durable, so you can easily fold it and toss it in your travel bag and take it with you without any worries, and since it's powered directly through a USB port, you also never have to worry about batteries or how to transfer images to your PC!

TopOCR Reader's second generation design provides more advanced optics with a shorter focal length that makes the TopOCR Reader document camera 50% smaller and lighter than a first generation document camera. The low distortion optics combined with the latest low noise CMOS image sensor produces high quality images with enhanced sharpness and a large depth of field with no distortion or focus issues.

TopOCR Reader also includes a built-in USB powered LED lamp for low light environments with a simple easy to use touch control located on top of the camera.

TopOCR Reader doesn't require ANY manual camera adjustment! Instead, the camera is automatically adjusted to the ambient lighting by the camera's integrated image procesing hardware. This automatic control system gets rid of all of the guesswork it normally takes for using a camera for document scanning!

Combined With TopOCR!

TopOCR brings together a powerful collection of the latest Neural Net OCR and image straightening technology for scanning books, magazines and newspapers with document cameras.

TopOCR combines sophisticated real-time image processing with with using your choice of two specialized OCR Engines for Document Camera scanning together with an easy to use Accessible User Interface.

TopOCR can also be used with a standard Windows Graphical User Interface, so it can be shared with your entire family!

Document Image Straightening with Neural Warp


TopOCR's Neural Warp is a revolutionary new convolutional neural network architecture that can analyze a document's page layout and can correct for page curvature and other geometric image distortions. This provides a GREAT improvement in OCR accuracy!

Why not use a Digital Camera or Smartphone?

When used for document image reading, handheld digital cameras or smartphones will often show a characteristic motion-blur casued by a slight shaking of the camera while the camera's shutter is open. This effect is even more pronounced at lower shutter speeds required in low light settings. TopOCR Reader's integrated camera stand with its weighted base adds mechanical stability to the camera to completely eliminate camera motion-blur. The integrated camera stand also guarantees that the camera is always perpendicular to the document to be read as well as at the correct height above the document. This approach completely eliminates image distortion and focus issues.
