Text Cloner Pro 6.0 – vastly improved OCR accuracy

Text Cloner Pro is a scanning package that bridges the gap between the physical and electronic world for individuals who use screen readers.

Premier Assistive Technology announces the release of Text Cloner Pro 6.0, now equipped with one of the most powerful and accurate OCR engines on the market. The advantage of Text Cloner Pro is that it works with any TWAIN compatible scanner and it will NOT conflict with any other “talking / reading” product.

Ken Grisham, President / CEO explains “Text Cloner Pro has always been the one of the most effective OCR software packages for use with screen reader technologies…. Straightforward, easy-to-use, affordable with very good accuracy. For years, we have consistently received accolades from visually impaired users on the quality of Text Cloner Pro”.

Steve Timmer, Chairman and Chief Technology Officer, explains that “As we have always done at Premier Assistive, looking for continuous process quality improvement is at the forefront of our thinking. With our latest OCR technology, we’ve taken an excellent product and made it even better. Text Cloner Pro 6.0 is absolutely as good or better than ANY OCR technology in the marketplace today.”

For years there has been a myth that screen readers do not do a good job of reading documents. That is why other companies have developed very expensive reading packages that require screen reader users to turn off their screen reader software. With Text Cloner Pro 6.0, Premier Assistive has changed all of that. Screen readers do a perfectly fine job of reading, once the document is accurately captured in digital format in the computer.

If you have a screen reader, you do not need another talking product. You just need your software to be “screen reader friendly”….and that’s what we have further expanded with Text Cloner Pro 6.0 ….. it continues to be a very “screen reader friendly” scanning / OCR package that can accurately scan virtually ANY hardcopy text and convert it to a digital format for your computer. If you use a screen reader, why should you spend hundreds of dollars more for additional features in another product when you already have the capabilities with your screen reader??? Now, with Text Cloner Pro 6.0, you no longer need additional reading software beyond your screen reader.

Are you tired of being held hostage to an annual maintenance agreement that requires you to pay for upgrades whether you need them or not just so you can continue to use their product? Premier Assistive Technology does not ever require a maintenance agreement. Of course, if you want an upgrade, you pay for an upgrade, but not before you are ready.

Text Cloner Pro 6.0 is STILL much less expensive than other OCR products for the visually impaired because we cut out non-essential features of other technologies. It’s very simple….We don’t charge you for speech technology that you already have!!!

Text Cloner Pro is only $99.95; and upgrade from any previous version is only $29.95.

(Note if you need PDF support, we even have a PDF conversion extension for Text Cloner Pro that is second to none. Download and compare it to anything else on the market. The price is only $69.95.)
