    In combination with your iOS device's built-in camera, ZoomReader lets you magnify and read printed text. Take a picture of an object like a book or menu, which the app will convert into text using state-of-the-art Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. ZoomReader will then read the text back to you using a natural-sounding voice.
