A scanner is an indispensable tool for agencies and organizations with activities related to education or culture, but the cost, speed and flexibility can be an impediment to its effective use. We present here the results of tests and research that resulted in a working prototype of a similar esquipament, easy to build even for people with little skill with the use of tools and a very low price. This scanner has a great potential for accessibility as it allows converting images containing characters into editable text, which in turn permits its reading by people with low vision or conversion to synthesized speech.
