What is InftyReader?

Date Updated

InftyReader is optical character recognition (OCR) software that recognizes  standard text, but also scientific figures and mathematics symbols. After scanning a document, it can output the content in a variety of digital formats, including LaTeX, MathML, XHTML, HRTeX, IML and Microsoft Word. Assistive technology can then be used to provide speech, Braille, or enlarged text access.
