Re: Problem With Convenient OCR


You need to open that PDF in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat first. Then of course it will announce that it is blank. Then you can use the convenient OCR with the "D" document option.

Subject: Problem With Convenient OCR

Hello, everyone


I am trying to read a scanned PDF image document using the Jaws convenient OCR feature, but cannot get the file to convert to a readable format.


If I open the PDF file in Internet explorer, and then try convenient OCR. I’m told that OCR cannot  be started.


I saved the PDf file, and then tried convenient OCR on the saved file, and got a script error message.


When I access convenient OCR, I use spacebar and Jaws, followed by O for OCR, and D for document.


I’m using Jaws 18 here with Windows 7.


I don’t recall having this problem with earlier versions of Jaws.


Am I missing something?
