Re: scanning a PDF

Hi:
You might want to try this---
Unload JAWS and then restart JAWS either from your Desktop or shortcut key then see if it reads.

I have been noticing this problem on occasion with not only PDF files but also when reading a DAISY file with FSReader.
Junloading and restarting JAWS seems to fix the problem.

Original message:

Hello,
I’m using windows10 and Jaws2018. I received a PDF file that Jaws will not read. I tried to use the OCR in Jaws and that didn’t read it as well.
I put the cursor on the file name in my download folder. I then went into the jaws window and pressed the necessary key strokes to start the OCR. It never read anything.
I then went into the PDF and did the same with activating the OCR. It still didn’t read anything.
Should I be doing something else?
Cheers,
Kevin
