A phone camera just doesn’t cut it when you need to scan text-heavy documents.

You end up having to either zoom out so far that the words are blurry, or having to take close up shots of phrases. And neither is a great option.

Get yourself the pen-sized Iris Express 6 Pen Scanner to get the job done.

The scanner works like a highlighter: you simply slide the machine over printed text, and the text is then automatically scanned right into your computer. The scanner recognises 128 languages, including Greek, Cyrillic languages, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese and Korean.
