We are pleased to announce MagniLink PCViewerTM Standalone − a software that can be used on a Windows based PC without being connected to a MagniLink video magnifier. With the software, you can OCR process documents and get the text read aloud by the built-in speech synthesis. You can also display the OCR processed text with or without speech in different viewing modes adapted for low vision.
It is possible to OCR process text from a saved picture previously taken with a connected MagniLink video magnifier and it´s also possible to import other documents (eg PDF files) into the application to have them OCR processed. You can enlarge and navigate in the OCR picture and the OCR result can be saved as an audio file (.wav). It´s also possible to paste text straight into the application and get it read aloud.
See video of how to activate and deactivate the MagniLink PCViewer Standalone license.

Our regular software MagniLink PCViewerTM is used to display image from a MagniLink video magnifier, on a Windows based PC. The software controls features such as magnification, color and brightness, and provides the user with the facility to make indiviual adjustments for the best possible experience.
Since before, with the option TTS, it´s possible to OCR process text and have it read aloud using the integrated speech synthesis. The OCR processed text can be displayed in several different picture view modes synchronized with the speech. It´s possible to OCR process text from a picture taken with the connected MagniLink camera, and it´s also possible to import other documents into the application to have them OCR processed.
In the updated version, if you purchase the optional TTS, you will also be able to use the software standalone, ie without a connected video magnifier. When purchasing the video magnifier MagniLink S Premium 2 or MagniLink Pro the software PCViewer is included and if you now choose the option TTS the standalone feature is also included.
