--- DISCONTINUED. (Verified 7/2000) RETAINED IN DATABASE FOR REFERENCE. --- OsCaR is an optical character recognition (OCR) system that scans typewritten or printed documents and imports the information to a computer text file, which can be read, edited, and saved for later use. The system recognizes text from 6 to 32 points in size, and in type styles such as underlined, boldface, italic, and headline. Text to be scanned can be oriented either vertically (portrait) or horizontally ( landscape) on the page. OsCaR has been designed to work with TeleSensory devices such as Navigator, Vista, VersaPoint, and the Vert line of screen access hardware and software, and can produce files ( including grade 2 Braille) for direct use with these devices. OsCaR will work with IBM PC-AT and PS/2 computers, and uses the TrueScan OCR circuit card (from Calera Recognition Systems) to recognize text. The package includes: OsCaR, the user interface software; Hewlett Packard ScanJet Plus or an equivalent scanner; and the TrueScan circuit card and software. A package including Duxbury Braille translation software ( see entry) is also available. Contact manufacturer for further price and feature information.
