Don and all,

Using JAWS 2018 latest build, I just gave my Pearl camera a trial run. Quite
impressive, and yes it may signal the end of any future Openbook support.
That is somewhat unfortunate, as Openbook has a very rich set of features in
settings and configurations. I'll keep my Openbook 8 and 9 copies for as
long as they run on Windows.

However that aside, OCR using the Pearl camera or a connected flatbed does
offer a very convenient way to scan physical document on demand without
needing Openbook.

Also note that it is now possible to recognize many document types right
from the file listing in Windows Explorer, which to me, is a much more
significant improvement in the Convenient OCR application.

But again, I don't see anywhere that the Pearl camera can be used with other
mainstream applications as an input device. Therein lies my continuing
criticism.

The Email I received offering the Pearl for $295 was for all Jaws 2018
and 2018 fusion customers and said the pearl would work with Jaws 2018.
I see it that FS has incorporated part of Open Book into Jaws 2018 and
Open Book is on its way out. Of course Open Book hasn't been updated
for years.

Isn't the Pearl camera supposed to work with the latest JAWS OCR?

Anyone got any experience with using the Pearl Camera versus a flat bed
scanner for use with Jaws 2018? Just got the notice that the Pearl
camera is on sale for users of Jaws 2018. Is the Pearl easier to use?
Does it produce better scanning results over a flat bed scanner?
Thanks
