[nfb-talk] Magnifacation apps

If your friend's iPhone has iOS 10 installed, the built-in magnifier mode has been working better for me than any app has in the past. Once enabled in Accessibility settings, triple-clicking the home button will bring up a list of accessibility options from which Magnifier can be turned on. Once activated, the entire iPhone screen becomes a very powerful and useful handheld magnifier.
The Seeing AI app can also be helpful for your friend (free from Microsoft), since it can read text aloud which is seen by the camera, and at the same time, the picture of what the camera is seeing is displayed on the phone. It can also identify products using their bar codes. It is a marvelous app in many ways.

EMagnifier works well as a hand held CCTV.

In the mean time, she is looking for iphone apps to aid in magnafacation for reading documents and food packiges. I recamended Be My Eyes but I'm no expert on turning an iphone into a portable hard copy document reader. Does anyone know of an app that can magnifay regular documents into large print ones that are in hard copy? Any ideas will be great!!!
