Re: JAWS Won't Read Safeway Receipt


 

Sorry, but you didn't say it was an email, I assumed it was an attached PDF.

Anyhow, you can still recognize the current screen or window although this may include other stuff you may not want. The keys for doing OCR on the screen is Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by O and S, for recognizing the current Window it is Jaws Key+Spacebar followed by O and W.

If it isn't secret, could you forward one of the Safeway receipt emails to me, I don't mind taking a look in case I can suggest anything else.

If you don't want to forward it to the list you can send it to sieghard@...

I thought OCR was just for PDF documents.  The receipt I am talking about is not a PDF file, it is an e-mail message.  When I tried to open up OCR JAWS wouldn’t start.

I get the occasional invoice from a supplier where this is the case. Just use Jaws OCR and  you should be fine.

Dear Listers:

 

Safeway supermarket delivers my groceries.  Before each delivery, they send me an e-mail receipt.  JAWS will read the part of the receipt that lists the time of day and the order number, but it will not read the receipt itself.  Have any of you had this experience with Safeway, and did you get JAWS to read the receipt?  If so, how?
