Ottawa (ON) Canada – iRead Solutions Inc. today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of VisuCaller 1.0, its new productivity app developed for iPhone. VisuCaller provides a new way to initiate phone calls from printed text – without typing or tapping. The app features advanced OCR technology that automatically takes action within seconds to quickly recognize phone numbers.
Printed phone numbers, web and map address exist in many places. QR codes were invented to permit computer technology to easily and accurately detect information and are used in many places so people can easily browse to a website. However, humans cannot read these codes and there are many places where printed websites exist without a QR code. Released today, VisuCaller give users the ability to experience the same convenience from QR codes with normal printed text.
“When reading a newspaper or magazine advertising, I can now contact the company immediately, by simply placing the phone over the number and it calls it automatically.” said Mona Regner, president of iRead Solutions Inc.
The OCR technology in the app detects printed text very quickly. VisuCaller provides simple single purpose functions, which only recognize specific printed text. User interactions with this app is minimal – move the IOS device so it can see the printed text of interest (tapping to focus if necessary) and wait as little as a second for the data to be recognized and take action. It is that simple.
VisuCaller recognizes and calls worldwide phone numbers. The detected phone numbers can be edited by adding missing area codes or by deleting unnecessary digits.
