Scannx software comes with a number of accessibility features to help those with disabilities
Technology can help remove some of the many barriers met by people with disabilities. By using technology for tasks such as reading and writing documents, those with disabilities can handle a wider range of activities independently.
Visual Assistance Tools
For some people with visual impairments the standard size of letters on a screen or printed in documents are too small for them to read and some people cannot distinguish one colour from another.
The Scannx screen Magnifier can be used by partially sighted users to increase the size of the text on-screen.
High contrast settings will benefit users with low vision or other visual disabilities such as being unable to distinguish one colour from another.
Scannx software comes with audio narrator features that can be used to read the screen options and text to users.
Scannx software comes with optical character recognition which can read the scanned page using speech synthesis. This can then be stored electronically in an MP3 format and sent to your preferred storage medium, thus providing independent access to books and documents for those who are visually impaired.
Less paper, less waste
With the Scannx library book scanner, digital searchable copies can be referenced repeatedly and shared with others without the need to make multiple scans or replace lost documents.
Extend book life span
The library book scanner allows books to lay flat on each page during the scanning process, eliminating the blackened areas of text from page curvature at the book spine and producing clearly readable text across the entire page. This protects books from damage to the spine, thereby reducing repair and replacement costs.
A Library Book Scanner With Incredible accuracy
The Scannx Book ScanCentre is integrated with the ABBYY FineReader Engine for unmatched optical character recognition accuracy. The FineReader technology takes the scanned images of books or documents and makes them machine-readable in several common formats, including PDF and Word.
ABBYY’s multilingual document recognition engine automatically detects English, French, Italian, German and Spanish languages.
Supported billing systems and vendors
The Scannx Book ScanCentre supports Jamex coin and debit card systems, as well as major credit cards. The library book scanner also works with several of the leading print management vendor systems such as EMOS, Pharos, Envisionware and P-Counter.
The Scannx Book ScanCentre may be configured to support an integrated automatic document feeder. The library book scanner also offers an optional three-track magnetic card reader to identify and authenticate authorised users.
