Re: Adobe Reader X

Let me emphasize what Ann said here. While JAWS 13 can sort of perform OCR
on graphical pdf documents, I've never been able to get it to work, and if
the document is of any size or seriousness, the feature really isn't
designed for it. On the other hand, using the web interface at
robobraille.org, you get a quick e-mail of the file in your preferred
format, including braille and a lot of others. The quality of the OCR is
good.

Or send it to Robobraille as an attachment, and they will convert it
and send it back.

Neither JAWS nor Window-Eyes will read this document. It has no

JAWS 13 allegedly has this functionality, though it is intended to
read a screen at a time. PDF Converter or OmniPage should convert
this picture into readable text.

I have Window-eyes at work. Adobe will not read some documents. It says
empty document or does not come up at all when presented with aPDF file.
It
does this when the emailed material is similar to a picture of words such
as
captcha is.
Any thoughts?
Deb
