The new software MagniLink PCViewer is here!

We are now releasing our new  MagniLink PCViewerTM software!  This is an innovative software for Windows based PCs that is used to display the image from a MagniLink reading camera system. The software controls the reading camera’s features, such as magnification, artificial colours and brightness, and provides the user with the facility to make individual adjustments for the best possible experience.

The software has lots of useful functionality, and there are different ways to control the functions, either via menus, shortcuts or buttons on the reading camera’s control panel. The graphical user interface is totally new and other new features include that all functions can be accessed directly in the menus inside the program, and that the user can choose which split screen modes you wish to have active and then easily switch between these. 

The TTS option makes it possible to OCR process a text and have it read aloud using integrated speech synthesis. The OCR processed text can be displayed in several different picture view modes synchronized with speech. It is possible to OCR process text from a picture taken with the connected MagniLink camera, but a totally new feature is that it´s also possible to import other documents into the program to have them OCR processed.
When MagniLink S Premium and MagniLink Pro are purchased, MagniLink PCViewerTM is included. MagniLink PCViewerTM can be purchased as an option for many of our other reading cameras.
