Re: Jaws 2018 beta and Outlook, was about OCR

I have had some issues. Outlook crashes when I switch folders. I reverted to JAWS 18, and everything is fine.

There haven’t been any problems here with JAWS 18 beta and switching folders or accounts in Microsoft Outlook 2016. I have Office installed from the Office 365 Current channel (version 1707).

I agree George, and I usually change threads by starting a new message with the appropriate subject line if I start a newtopic.  Just changing the subject doesn’t help if you are responding to a thread, at least not for those using iPhones withmesssage threading turned on.

I got caught up in just responding to what others said.

Sorry about that.

How are you changing folders?

I have as many Email accounts as you in Outlook 2016 and changing folders has not crashed outlook yet.


I use Control+y and then first letter navigation to get to the account I want and hit right arrow to open it and down arrow to the inbox and hit enter.

I keep the ones that are not my main email closed to make it easier to get back to the inbox for this account that I use for most things.

I will try this after they fix 2018 with Outlook 2016. Since email is the main thing I do on the computer, and it is open all the time, I cannot have JAWS 2018 running as it will crash Outlook as soon as I go to change folders and/or email accounts. Since I have 5 active accounts, each time I pop into my email, I check each one. I cannot be bothered with turning 2018 off, launching JAWS 18 each time I check mail, just do it too often. Looking forward to kicking the tires on 2018 as soon as that is fixed. An yes, this was reported via beta form the first day of the release.

That is what I did as well. Once you save it as a JPG file! Just press applications or shift+F10 and arrow down to recognize with JAWS, and JAWS will bring up a virtual document that you can read, copy from, and perform commands for a virtual document. This is beautiful!

I would think you would save the scan as a jpg file then perform the Jaws OCR on it.  Least that is what worked for me.

My main interest is in the OCr using a flatbed scanner since Openbook does not work on this system and FS seems to have left it in the lurch.


I successfully scanned a page with my Cannon LIDE 110 scanner.

However, what can you do with that text once you have done the scan?


There doesn’t seem to be any options other than maybe copying and pasting it somewhere, but if that is the case, I’ll just use my iPhone with Seeing AI.
