Can you hear it? Xerox Audio Documents App
By Cheryl Otstott, Social Media Project Manager, Forums and At Your Service Blog at Xerox.
Have you ever wished someone would just read that long business document to you? Are you an auditory learner that comprehends better when you hear something? We may have a solution for you. Xerox Audio Documents App is an app available for use with your ConnectKey Technology-enabled multifunction printer that will convert a hard copy document to an audio file.
Think of the implications; now, instead of having a room full of people read a document for a meeting or a workshop, you can simply play the audio and everyone saves time by not having to read the document, and you save paper and print time. Or maybe you have spare time during your drive or ride to work, and listen to the audio file at that time.
How does it work?
Open the app, enter your e-mail, source language, settings and scan your document at the Xerox ConnectKey multifunction printer. An MP3 link is sent to the e-mail address you specified. Open the file and listen to your document. Xerox Audio Documents app supports document submission in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian and Brazilian Portuguese. Check out this video to see just how quick and easy it is to scan your document to an audio file.
What type of documents work?
Simple to even complex documents can be scanned. Audio Documents can accommodate challenging document formats. For example, text displayed in columns can be interpreted into portable and convenient audio output. Best results are achieved with simple layouts with no handwriting, simple graphics and no background colour on the original.
