Nuance Debuts Scan-to-Kindle Feature

5/14/09

OmniPage 17, the latest version of a Windows document version program from Burlington, MA-based Nuance Communications (NASDAQ: NUAN), has the ability to upload scanned documents directly to Amazon Kindle 2 reading devices, Nuance announced today. The new feature is part of an overall push by Nuance to help offices go paperless. The Kindle conversion process also provides the text needed for the Kindle 2′s text-t0-speech feature, which is powered by Nuance software and voices. Of course, OmniPage 17 will set you back even more than the $359 Kindle 2—the software goes for $500.
