  1. Will you be offering a way to use OCR more than 5x per day? A paid unlimited option? I just got your Note Air and the device’s ability to use OCR on my scanned readings for classes is incredible. As a college student with a learning disability, the OCR feature has been invaluable for enabling TTS to apply to scanned PDFs of obscure/scholarly texts that don’t offer audiobooks. Please let me know!

    1. Hi Zoe,

      We’re planning to offer more OCR times per day but haven’t decided the way to do so. Please stay tuned to our social media where we’ll announce our latest feature update in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your support.

      Best regards,
      BOOX Team
