Join us to learn about an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software that can recognize and translate scientific documents (including math symbols) into LaTeX, MathML and XHTML.

InftyReader is an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) application that recognizes and translates scientific documents (including math symbols) into LaTeX, MathML and XHTML!

Optical character recognition (OCR) technologies are invaluable for improving access to printed materials by people with print disabilities.Most do not work well with scientific content. Scientific documents typically include mathematical and other special symbols that standard OCR does not recognize. In addition, no standard commercial OCR application can recognize a two-dimensionally-structured math equation and convert it to a standard software format. The InftyReader OCR application can properly recognize scientific documents scanned from paper or in PDF format. InftyReader recognizes complicated math expressions, tables, graphs and other technical notations and converts them to accessible formats. InftyReader can be used by people with print disabilities in combination with the ChattyInfty accessible scientific editor application. ChattyInfty provides speech access for reading and writing math and editing the output of InftyReader. Sighted people can use InftyReader with the free Infty Editor to edit InftyReader output and produce accessible scientific content. InftyReader and ChattyInfty are sold by InftyReader Group, Inc.
