[blindlaw] Scanning with Apple

Hello Everyone,


First , I'd like to thank folks for the many helpful and substantive
responses to my query last week about portable electronic devices.  Apple
IOS seems to be the popular choice, but I realize that there are other
solutions as well, including the Victor Reader, Book Sense, neb books, etc. 


For those using Apple devices, I wonder if any of you could comment on
options for scanning documents for OCR?  It's my understanding that Kurzweil
and Open Book are not compatible with Apple.  I believe that Apple has its
own proprietary scanning program, but I have no idea if it is satisfactory.
I'm wondering if any of you use the Apple scanning program,  or do people
just resort back to Kurzweil, OpenBook, etc. for these purposes?


Thanks in advance.
