Re: Openbook and Jaws one last time

I learned a long time ago not to try and predict what a software company might do. 

 

The Pearl Camera was designed to work with Openbook.

It also works with Jaws Convenient OCR, but as far as I know, it doesn’t work with any non-FreedomScientific software.

 

I don’t own one, so I truly have no idea.

If Fs should incorpate Open Book into Jaws ocr when do you think this would happen?

 

Another question does pearl work with Open Book or is Pearl a stand alone system?

Alan,

Yes, that would be the ethical thing to do.

Well, if they do that, I would hope there would be some future credits etc. to us that spent almost $1,000 on a license.

Thank you for your offer, but the ultimate issue is that I cannot save anything scanned with either Openbook 1542 or 1757.

 

Freedom Scientific nor Microsoft figured out the issue, so no worries.

There is something very odd about my system.  I’ll probably get a new computer in the next year or so and will see what happens with a completely clean install unless Freedom Scientific does what I think they are going to do and just incorporate all the features of Openbook into Jaws Convenient OCR.

.

 

Thanks anyway,

Richard

Hi: Nino hear

 

I apologize for not keeping up with this thread.

Thanks have a good day.

Thanks,

Perhaps I’ll try the old version.  FS support has proven to be less than helpful on this one.

No way to know, since you are trying to install an Openbook version a lot more recent than mine. The one that installs for me is OB9.0.1543ENU-32bit-64bit.EXE

 

At this point, wait for Monday and just call Freedom Scientific support and talk to someone.

Hello,

I may have gotten very confused with the discussion recently about conflicts with FreedomScientific OCR 64 and OpenBook 9.0.1757.403.

 

I thought there was an issue with that FS OCR 64 bit file being present when Openbook was installed causing a problem.

 

So, since I had some time today, I removed that file and attempted to install OpenBook again.

I got the error that a file was missing so Openbook couldn’t be installed.  You guessed it, the FS OCR64 file has to be there.

 

Was it the OCR 32 that caused the problem or am I just too dense to get this?

 

In any case, before I give up finally on Openbook, any sage advice would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Richard
