Read Braille with a standard A4 scanner
OBR – Optical Braille Recognition – is a Windows software package that allows you to “read” single and double sided Braille documents with a standard A4 scanner – or large documents with an A3 scanner. The retrieved information is presented as text that can be used in all types of Windows applications.
The Braille information in a small letter or a complete Braille Book can be retrieved into computer form in the same easy way, even if you do not read Braille at all.
Everyone who works with blind people and does not read Braille will benefit from using the OBR. For example: teachers who do not read Braille, public organisations communicating with Blind individuals and Computerised Braille Libraries.
The scanning process is quick and simple. With just a few commands and in less than thirty seconds, you can receive the text representation of the Braille page, both sides in one scan!

We recently released a new OBR version 3.7, with a new range of supported scanners. The registered users of previous OBR versions can get the upgrade for free.
