Here comes an indigenous alternative to Chinese document-scanning apps, following Government of India’s decision to ban 59 mobile apps which were prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India. AIR Scanner, a free-of-cost mobile application, has been developed Rohit Kumar Chaudhary and Kavin Agrawal, two final-year B.Tech students in the Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Bombay.
AIR Scanner has been launched on Independence Day, 15th August 2020. The AI (Artificial Intelligence) based Reading Assistant & Document Scanner app can scan documents and also read to users who have difficulty in reading English.
What makes this app special are its exclusive safety features. The document you scan using your mobile camera will be saved in PDF format and will be stored in the device only. AIR Scanner app does not collect any information about the user and all the documents are stored in the phone’s local storage.
With this app, every user can enjoy all the document scanner features such as scanning, organizing and sharing documents without worrying about its security.
Added advantage of this app is its Artificial Intelligence feature that reads out the scanned pages and also provides meaning of the selected word to the user in 40 different languages.
