Chinese smartphone manufacturer Honor has launched its new AI-powered app 'PocketVision at IFA 2019, which aims to help people read documents, menus and other hard to read texts. "With the launch of this app, we hope to create an enhanced reading experience for people all around the world, enabling a greater sense of independence and giving people with low vision the confidence to unlock their potential and pursue their passions," George Zhao, President of Honor said in a statement. There are three available modes so far - Text-to-Speech Mode, Zoom-In Mode and Negative Image Mode, XDA Developers reported on Saturday. Text-to-Speech Mode helps to convert pictures to text faster and more accurately and then narrates the text from books, documents, menus, and more, with ease. Zoom-In Mode allows users to zoom into text using the volume buttons on their device. While, Negative Image Mode; provides a range of colour filters to enhance text.
