Re: JAWS question about picking out greeting cards online with total blindness
Walker, Michael E
Hi Richard, that sounds amazing. I will have to check it out. I bet that will help with overcoming accessibility obstacles in other apps on my computer.
As for greeting cards, I thought of a solution. I am going to accept that when I order a card online, before I order, I will have a sighted person describe the decorations, as I know there is more to cards than text. If a sighted person is not present, I can send them a link to the online card, for them to tell me if it looks good. It is a way of double checking that I am really ordering what I want.

Seeing AI is on your iPhone, but it does read computer screens in the Short Text mode, but I've never tried it with greeting cards.
The app is free and well worth your time anyway to check it out. It now has a handwriting mode where you take a picture of handwritten text and it does an amazing job of reading it. This is a first for OCR software, and it is FREE!
