Also, have you tried just unplugging the scanner and plugging it back in?


Especially if you updated to Windows 10 2004.

Or you may have to go into the printer and scanner settings and select it again.

After you press the, JAWS Key + Spacebar, then, O, for OCR, and press, A , for acquire.


 You need to arrow to the scanner to select it in the Convenient OCR / Cameras and Scanners list dialog.  Now tab to, Acquire, and press spacebar or enter.
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

When I click “Acquire” my computer announces “ Finished – Failed to recognize text.” The scanner has not operated at all at this point. I have only 1 scanner and it is recognized in the “Convenient OCR” “Cameras and Scanners”  dialog. Any ideas why the scanner is not engaged or suggestions I might try to produce scanning?
