iOS App Price Drop: Prizmo

The iOS app Prizmo has dropped in price—likely temporarily—to $5.99. This app is usually $9.99 and provides almost instant OCR capabilities. For students who need worksheets or text read out loud, this is immeasurably beneficial.

In my trials, there were some inaccuracies and it takes some time for students to learn how to take a clear picture. However, if a student is carrying an iPad during the day, this app can work with the iPad to provide text-to-speech capability wherever and whenever the student needs it.
