Re: How can I read the text in an image inserted into word document?

Bissett, Tom <tom.bissett@...>

Hi, These are tricky. What I have had to do is copy the image to another program such as paint and run jaws OCR on it there. This can be problematic. You are best to put paint to full window mode and get rid of rulers etc. I don't remember all the details but that is the jist. The results very widely from garbage to a reasonable result.
