moderated Re: Scanning with Open book versus JAWS

Van Lant, Robin

I haven’t had as much luck scanning more complicated documents with columns or charts using the JAWS OCR.  I tend to open them using K1000 if it’s more complicated.  I only use VoiceDream Scanner on my phone for quick things I need to read and it’s true that it works best with a stand.

I haven’t as yet explored this ability within Jaws. Could someone give me a quick overview?

That is the difference between a stand-alone $1000 piece of software and a free built-in utility.

I suppose, if you don’t mind extra stuff, you could take a screen shot after you do the Jaws scan.

Just learned about being able to scan a document with JAWS layered keystroke (jaws key and spacebar, then o, then a)

This is great to simply read some text and to save text. However, I see no way to scan and save as an image (i.e. jpg) This is an option in open book. Thoughts?
