Re: PDG Images


Jennifer, as for PDF files that JAWS reports as empty or blank but the
file size is not 0, you can use the Convenient OCR feature in JAWS to
reveal the text within the PDF as follows:

assuming you have Adobe's Reader DC installed, press enter on the PDF file.

press insert+spacebar to switch to the layered command structure, this
will sound a blip, then press o for the OCR command and d for document.
after a few seconds, up to 60 seconds or more to process the image of
the PDF.
after it is done, you can read and copy/paste the text as if it were
converted into a regular document. when finished, press escape or alt+f4
to close the processed document and alt+f4 to close Reader DC.

Good Morning All,

Does anyone have the steps to scan a document into an accessible PDF?
I need to pass them on to people so they can provide me accessible
PDF's. Secondly, any advice on what, preferably free, programs or
steps I can use to convert a PDF image into an accessible one?

I'm running Windows 10and Jaws 17.02729

Thank you,
