The Jaws OCR feature has the option to do PDF files but it is not limited to those alone.

The other jaws OCR choices such as the w option for window will perform OCR on the currently focused windows.  I have often opened and image file with windows paint and used the jaws OCR option w to perform OCR on the window to see what I could get from the image.  It does work but results are unpredictable.

She said it's a JPG file, Convenient OCR only recognizes PDF files. You can, of course, use one of the many online converters to convert the JPG file to a PDF file and then use Jaws Convenient OCR to read it.

Plus, haven’t used OCR ever... I really want to forward it to some people, and would like to have just the attachment and not the main body of the email, for those I plan to send it to. So, backtracking a bit, how do I bring up JAWS OCR?

If it’s a regular attachment in an email, you should be able to shift tab up, from the message body, then right arrow over to the attached .jpg image. Click on that and the pic should come up on screen. Then you might be able to bring up the JAWS OCR and hopefully it’ll read it to you?

 

I haven’t tried any of the above  yet, I usually just print up the .jpg, and then scan it on my scanner through Open Book.

This works, but it’s a royal PITA!

Hello, everyone,

 

I have a jpeg of a marketing brochure that I can’t open. Would JAWS be able to read that once it is open? Any suggestions for opening, then reading, it??
