Rapid optical character recognition (OCR) creates searchable PDF files.

Text to Speech functionality supports output to MP3 audio files.

Files can be exported easily to:

  • Thumb drive
  • Cloud storage (Google Drive, iCloud, DropBox, OneDrive, Amazon Cloud Drive, Box)
  • Smart phones and tablets via an on demand open WiFi connection
