Re: Jaws & jpg files

I just tested this for you. I took a screenshot and saved it as a.JPEg and saved it on my desktop.

I then located it and hit the application key then activated recognize with JAWS. Then it brought up a window with the OCR results. Not sure why it is not working for you as I had no problems. I suggest you do a jaws repair.

Subject: Jaws & jpg files




Just tried the new feature where jaws is supposed to read jpg files? I used to do this with open book but just tried with latest version of JAWS 2018 to no avail. Here is what I did.

Went to a jpg file (picture of a receipt) and when cursor had focus on the file I hit application key and selected “recognize with jaws.  It doesn’t seem to do anything. Is there something else I need to do? I remember in the beta testing with first version I could not get this to work and reported it to VFO. Have not tried since but still does not work. Am I needing to do another step? Are others able to complete this ok
