A patent ? For what ? For putting together in an absolutely obvious way two existing technologies like OCR and text to speech ? Ridiculous, like the price. As someone said, this could be a relatively easy iPhone app put together by combining existing software.

$1500 seems a bit expensive for what will likely be an iPhone app in the near future.
