iPhone App Translates Text In Real-Time

iPhone App Translates Text In Real-Time

QuestVisual's impressive software uses Optical Character Recognition technology to recognize text in the real world.

Dan Gould

QuestVisual has created an amazing iPhone app that will translate any text it can see in real time.

Using Optical Character Recognition technology, the software recognizes letters and words, checks them against a dictionary, then re-renders the translation over the image.

At the moment, the $4.99 app only does Spanish-English, and English-Spanish, but other languages are in the works.
