About this app

The OneStep Reader app is an essential tool for anyone with low vision, visual impairments, difficulty reading, reading disabilities such as dyslexia, as well as blind individuals.

It reads anything from menus, bills, documents, signs, mail, PDFs and JPEG files and more for immediate and easy access!

How It Works:
Simply take a picture of any text with your device and the app reads it aloud or displays it with a connected Braille display. The app uses high-quality speech to text and OCR for accuracy.

The app helps you get a good photo with viewfinder assist, tilt assist, and automatic text detection. It navigates by line, sentence, word, or character and has synchronized text highlighting. It can read multiple pages and is fully accessible using Google TalkBack.

It works in multiple languages, including, but to limited to English, Norwegian (Bokmål), Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, Danish, Turkish, Russian and Polish. More details below.

KNFB Reader is the winner of the 2016 AFB Access Award.

My experience is it's highly expensive, otherwise the past couple times that I have tried to use it, it has been okay. It recognized text. Although it's very finicky with distance between the phone camera and the text on the paper. I can get the same functionality out of competitor apps for either a cheaper price, or for free.

Not a real app. It immediately prompts you to "unlock full version for $99." Everything else is grayed out and literally the only interactive option is to make a purchase. Don't list your app as "free (with in-app purchases)" if there are no free features and it can't be used unless you pay a hundred dollars. I clicked around and there's not a single thing you can do in this app without buying the full version.

I am blind; and, like thousands of others without vision now have no way to accurately read documents. For 3 years this app has worked great, and then started skipping words until it progressed to the point where it does not even open; $79. is too much to pay for something that just stops and does not come back on. Please fix this app! Many want refunds, but I have faith in the developers to fix it; many others also do as well, don't let us down. thank you

The name for sure. But OneStep Reader, formerly known as KNFB Reader, continues to be your quick, accurate, and efficient access to any printed text through speech or Braille. So a new name, but with the same good functionalities!
