Re: need help with Convenient OCR

You can use it if you don’t have a camera. It can process certain types of files, like .jpg files.

So, how did this person send the picture?

You should be able to save it on your machine, and if you have JAWS 2018, you can use the “recognise with JAWs” item in the context menu of File Explorer to try and OCR it.

Try saving attachments.

Subject: need help with Convenient OCR


Can someone please point me to detailed steps for using convenient OCR? Can I use it if I don’t have a camera?

Someone sent me some information I thought they were going to scan in and email to me. Instead, they took a picture of it and emailed that. I need the information. I never thought I would need to use the Convenient OCR in JAWS, so I never studied about it. And remember I have made it very clear that I’m not tech savvy. Having said that, I feel confident that I could retrieve the information the person sent to me if I could use something like the OCR that I read about in the JAWS help menu. I just don’t fully understand how to do it.


Thanks for any help.
