Does it not work with Adobe BC as well?

If so, I guess that’s my problem.

Why doesn’t your PDF open in Adobe? Not sure if this will fix the issue,
but you might give it a try.

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

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?
