I waited for about 2 minutes. I found out that the first 4-5 pages have something Jaws couldn’t read. If I kept paging down I eventually reached the text.

How many pages is the file and how long did you wait?

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
