We have updated ClaroSpeak Web and renamed it ClaroRead Anywhere. We think the name change reflects how it provides the key features we know people need – speech with highlighting, OCR, PDF – just like ClaroRead for PC and Mac and Chromebook, but with the added advantage that it can be used on any modern platform – Android, iOS, Windows, Mac – without the need for installation.
Other changes in this version include:
- Mozilla Firefox users will find that they can use installed system voices in ClaroRead Anywhere. For Windows users, this includes the Vocalizer voices that come with ClaroRead, such as Daniel. For Apple Mac users, this includes the high-quality voices provided by Apple. All of these work offline, so you do not need an Internet connection.
- We’ve changed how taking a photograph (or opening an image file) works. Instead of simply extracting the text for you, you now get an accessible PDF version of the photo so you can see the original text in context when you play it. Much better for understanding what you’re reading.
