Below is the Introduction to InftyReader for blind users given by Prof. John Gardner (Oregon State University & ViewPlus Technology) at the ICCHP Summer University 2011.
To recognize image files:
InftyReader runs on Windows 10 and 11, on a PC equipped with at least 2GB free memory available for the application.
Then, the recognition results of the selected image files are saved into the file you specified by the "output document name". When you select a folder instead of files, all the image files in the folder of the specified file type (TIFF/GIF/PNG/BMP/PDF) are recognized and the results are output into the files having the name(s) of the folders.
If you set to check to the "Search Sub Folders" item under the "Option" menu, InftyReader recognizes all the image files in the subfolders of the selected folder. For example, if you select the folder "folder to" having the subfolder structure below,
and if you select the file type "IML" for the output file type, then, you will get the files "subfolder1.iml", "subfolder2.iml" in the folder "folder to". The recognition results of a.tif and b.tif (resp. c.tif and d.tif) are saved in the file subfolder1.iml (resp. subfolder2.iml, respectively).
If you select LaTeX as output file type, you will get "subfolder1.tex", "subfolder2.tex", and it is similar for other file types HR-TeX and XHTML.
