Re: OCR and JPG files


 

If I take my iPhone and take a picture of a page of text I have essentially a photo in JPeg format but it consists of a page of text which Jaws 2018 or Jaws 2019 can read/recognize.
Also, there used to be and maybe there still are sccanners who save in JPG format although I think most nowadays use PDF.

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!

Hello:
Can the JAWS OCR convert a JPG file and if so, what is the key strokes?

Thanks in advance,
