I noticed that in your earlier reply. I never thought about it before, simply because I never saw the need to scan what was right in front of me. Come to think of it, years ago--long before Convenient OCR--I had experiences similar to what you reported.

Ted and all:

Based on my experience yesterday, Convenient OCR will also pull the text from PDF documents that are not scanned image files.

I use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC here.

I don't know how your system is set up, but most systems open PDF's with Acrobat Reader (or some similar product)by default. When you hear the words "empty document," then you initiate Convenient OCR.

OK, what am I supposed to open it with, grin. If I press enter on it, it opens with either the Microsoft image viewer or Balabolka. Of course, Balabolka can read some pdf files, so it is not necessary to do anything else. I am truely lost here, as I don't think I pressed enter on anything the first time.

Hi,

I would like to read a pdf file with the Convenient OCR program. It is
not working. I did it once on the first day I received my copy of Jaws.

Steps taken:
located the file in my user folder
pressed jaws key plus spacebar
pressed O and then D


I did the same thing again today. When I get to the press of the d, I
get a sound and nothing happens. Is it possible I a) either made a
mistake in what I did, or b) changed something in Jaws that won't
allow me to do this now?

Thanks for the help.

Carol
