Scan a book with webcam, read on monitor in large type.
Is there software that will let me use a webcam to scan a page in a book and view it on the monitor in real time?
I am in the early stages of AMD. Type on the printed page and fonts on the monitor are to small for me to see. I need to have someway to enlarge the books I am reading.
Unfortunately, the books I want to read don't come in Ebook format.
I visulize this as working in the manner of a security system.
Let me see if I can clarify some stuff.
I was remiss in the use of the word 'scan' which quickly deteriorated into 'scanner'. I had intended for it to mean a quick once over with the eye, as I learn the usage of it 60 year ago. Not make a copy of the book page and store it somewhere.
I used the word 'webcam', mainly because in my early days of computing everything was "roll you own" My original thought was to use the webcam to grab the video stream and feed it to a browser where I could use the 'ctrl+' to enlarge the fonts.
I will go back and revisit 'cheese', haven't used it that much and did not know it would go full screen.
