Summary: I purchased this scanner because my professor wanted us to type each question before answering it. It works great. It accurately uploads the text you highlight. It took a little practice to scan smoothly.
Summary: I am writing my dissertation and I was lamenting to my Chair how difficult it was to do the Lit Review portion as typing quotes and passages from books and texts was both mechanically and visually difficult (holding the book down, typing, finding my place back in the material etc.).
Summary: The Iris Pen totally cut my note-taking time in half! It is a great investment for college students who have to take lots of notes from textbooks. It is easy to learn and use. I recommend this product for anyone!
Summary: I bought this pen to assist me with my school work. It has really saved me a lot of time by not having to type everything out. There are times when it does not correctly scan the text, but that only happnes when the page is not flat. Otherwise, I would recommend this to anyone.
Summary: I recently received this product as a gift and find that the accuracy of OCR is quite high and intuitive on my Mac. It works much better than I expected it would. Because it has a wheel that tracks the speed of the movement, even my erratic scans work well.
Conclusion: I got my Irispen, installed it, calibrated it and then was puzzeled about what to do next. I called tech support ( these guys give away for free!! ) and they gave me a walkthrough and explanation about how it all worked.
