Another wrinkle in all this about "Recognize with JAWS"...Has anyone noticed
that the OCR results have an excessive number of blank lines (CR/LF)
inserted into the rendered text? It is readable, of course, but a mess if
you want to save it as a text file.

Subject: Re: JAWS Reading Multiple Words Together in PDF Documents

The only thing that works for me is OCR--either
with JAWS spacebar+insert, then o, then d for
document; or Open the .pdf with Openbook. JAWS
can't guess where the spaces should be, but OCR knows that there are words.

Good luck!

look fine, a screen reader will put words together.
Then again, sometimes they are just run together in the PDF.
Try bringing it into Word and see if that helps.
