I wouldn't depend on JAWS to properly be able to control your scanner if I were you since it's not specifically made for such things. Sure the option is there but I'd wager it doesn't work nearly as well as a specialized program. Just scan it using a program that's really meant to scan stuff and you can then run Picture Smart on the file by activating the context menu on it in File Explorer.

all it does is say it failed to detect text. but the scanner doesn't even move. the same scanner works with openbook and the windows paint program.

picture smart to read the information provided in the graphics.
but, if the graphic contains the link, you may expand and perform the
picture smart.
