Batch Scan allows you to scan more than one document at a time. You can read multiple pages of text in one sitting by scanning multiple images consecutively. This is then processed and spoken out as paragraphs and pages that you can scroll through at your own pace. This feature could be used for reading multi-page documents such as magazines and books. The context menu behaves the same as the Scan Text feature. The gestures to scan a second page are different and explained below.
To scan two or more pages, follow these steps:
Step 1: Navigate the main menu and do a one-finger double tap in the sub-menu More Features.
Step 2: Do a one-finger double tap in Batch Scan or simply use Voice Commands. If Batch Scan is one of your favourite features and you want to find it in the main menu of the glasses, you can always add it by following the steps in the following article: Personalize your Menu
Step 3: Depending on whether text detection is enabled, you will be informed that the first page is scanned.
Step 4: Do a one-finger double tap again to scan the second page. Repeat this step for the pages that follow.
Step 5: If you are done scanning the pages or pieces of text, a two-finger single tap to complete scanning.
Step 6: A success sound will be played and all scanned text will be opened in the reader. Just like the Reader that opens after Scan Text, the text with multiple pages that you scan with Batch Scan can also be exported to the Envision App.
Note: This feature only works in online mode, therefore it is necessary to be connected to a stable network to get the most out of it. That does not mean when you are not connected to the internet you can not use the device.
