Kevin, When someone looked at the images, were they part of the diagram or were they captions below the image. If part of the interior of an image like a diagram, the original OCR engine may not have recognize them from lines or other details of the image. What is the source of the eBook, and is it a DAISY structured book?

Rick, The book is in an electronic format. A friend looked at a few of the figures and said they have text. This is a book for a web development class I will be taking.

If the images are diagrams or photos there may be nothing there for an OCR program to convert to text. Not knowing what the technical manual may cover, the images could be true handwriting meaning not a common script font. The case there would be the same. Wish I had better news or advice.
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
