Re: OCR and JPG files

Hi all!
What is the difference between (real) text and (photo) text? I need to know
so that I can explain it myself. I have to deal with this sort of garbage
myself in my own technical work and I need to be ale to convert PDFs into
something that's accessible.

Many sighted people genuinely don't know the difference between photo-text
and 'real' text (as we may call it), unless it is explained to them.

.JPG files can vary quite a bit in resolution, which would affect the
quality of the text (if any) gleaned from converted OCR.

They are only images, yes. But sometimes they are images of text. Why
anybody would do that is beyond me, unless of course someone took a picture
of--for example--a label and wanted to send it to someone else.

I have had good experience with this. Following Don's suggestion,
without opening the file press the applications key and arrow to
"recognize with JAWS" or just type the letter J. For me, it worked like a
charm!
