YMB is an optical character recognition device designed specifically for seniors and individuals who are blind or have low vision. With its magnification and voice output capabilities, YMB captures images of printed material using its built-in scanner, magnifies it up to 30x, and reads it aloud. It can recognize and read printed material in several different languages, including English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese (both Mandarin and Cantonese). Users can also change the setting to adjust the pronunciation of a language when more than one language is written on a page (e.g., simplified Chinese and English, traditional Chinese and English, Japanese and English, or Korean and English). With YMB, users can save material as a MP3 or a text file on the USB, save up to 1,000 books, and play CDs and DVDs (a screen is required for the latter). Whenever the user inserts a disc into the device, YMB will announce what type of disc it is (e.g., music CD, data CD, DVD, or DAISY-recorded CD). Text and images can be displayed on a screen when playing a DAISY CD to support individuals who have reading disabilities. Users can also adjust the background’s color contrast for easier viewing.
