The figure in a picture format does have text. You said I should OCR it before putting it into a document. The book is in electronic format. How would I be able to OCR a figure? Is it possible to put the cursor on the line where the figure exists and then activate the Jaws OCR? I know I could do that from outside a document.

OCR the image *before* putting it in a document.
Then copy and paste the resulting text.

I only had one image in the word document. I had the text before the image and even after it. It couldn’t read anything. Should I put the images in some other type of document?
Perhaps try recognizing one image at a time?
Not heard of the program.

Hello, I’m using windows10, jaws 2018 and Vital Source to read a technical book which there are many figures that are images. Jaws is unable to read the images. I copyed the image and put into a word file. I then put the cursor on the file name and used Jaws OCR. It wasn’t able to read anything. Should I try some other method? I should say Vital Source is an application where books can be placed. There are options to put book marks, notes and other options. Cheers, Kevin
