Hi, Laura. RoboBraille.org does well with these type of pdf documents. If you go to robobraille.org, upload the pdf, select the type of file you want the pdf to be converted to, and choose accessible format, it will send you an email with an accessible attachment. I have found Robobraille to be very good at converting pdf's with fewer errors than many of the OCR conversion tools.
 
You will first need to save the pdf attachment to your computer as a file so that you can upload it to the website.

Brian,

 

Ding! (smile); I understand now but am somewhat frustrated …… The first time I opened this attachment Jaws said “blank” and now when I open the attachment it tells me “Alert: Empty document” and when I try to run OCR it says there is no document (sigh).  I’m very appreciative for your help and others who have given input on this and hope y’all will be able to help me resolve this issue.

 

It’s getting late in my time zone so I think I’ll call it a night and try again in the morning.

 

Thank you,

Laura

Laura,

          Each of us has been dippy at one point or another in our lives!!

          You don't hold down all four keys at once.  The description from the shortcut file I gave earlier is accurate.  It's INSERT+Spacebar, [release that dual key press], followed by O, [release that letter O], followed by D [release that letter D].  The same for the announce help messages for OCR except that final character is a question mark instead of a D.

           There are some triple and quadruple key presses that are for very rarely used commands that one doesn't ever want to trigger unintentionally.  In that case it would be written with the plus sign between all three or four keys, an artificial example would be something like INSERT+CTRL+SHIFT+NumPad Multiply.

Brian
