Dear Federationists,
"Make the print your gift this Christmas with KNFB Reader. KNFB Reader is a mobile app that converts printed text into high quality speech to provide accurate, fast, and efficient access to both single- and multiple-page documents with the tap of a button. Make the print yours and live the life you want! The app is available for iOS and Android devices. From December 21, 2015, through January 4, 2016, you can purchase KNFB Reader for $74.99, 25% off the store price.
Giving KNFB Reader as a gift is easy! You can obtain iTunes or Google Play gift cards at many local retailers such as Target or Walmart, or online at Amazon.com. To redeem iTunes gift cards, open the App Store, scroll down to the bottom of the page under "Featured," and choose "Redeem." You will need to sign in using your Apple ID, and then you will be prompted to use your phone's camera to photograph the bar code on the gift card, or enter the redemption code from the card manually. To redeem a Google Play gift card, choose the Navigation button in the upper left corner, then scroll down and choose "Redeem," and enter the redemption code located on the Google Play gift card.
You can gift KNFB Reader iOS directly to someone by opening the App Store, and searching for KNFB Reader.  Once you find the app, select the "Share" button at the top of the screen near the "Back" button, then choose that and then choose "Gift." This will bring up a screen for you to enter the recipient's email address (you will need to use the email address they have linked to their Apple ID). Then you may choose to add a message and set the date to send your gift.
Why use this app? KNFB Reader is an easy, fast, accurate, and efficient text recognition mobile app that delivers near instantaneous results. Tired of being unsure what's been charged to your credit card? Want to know who sent you that package? Need nutritional information from a food label? Find a book that's not available on NLS?  Buy a new appliance and want to access the user's manual? KNFB Reader is your go-to:  it has reading modes for books, articles, labels, bills, and memos. Worried about getting a good photo of your text as a blind person? KNFB Reader provides a field of view report and tilt guidance for more accurate capturing of print in the photograph, as well as automatic text detection. You'll get the right photo; KNFB Reader will help you. The app allows for high quality digital output to speech or connected Braille displays. The scanned material can be imported as a .jpg or .pdf, or exported in .txt and .html formats. Not much space on your phone? No problem. Use cloud storage for your files via Dropbox or Google Drive! The app also has a batch scan mode to process and read multiple-page documents such as manuals or books. Don't let print be out of your reach ever again.

Happy Holidays from your KNFB Reader Team."

The national Federation of the blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want. Blindness is not what holds you back.
