Hi, Glenn. Here is what JAWS help says about the OCR layer of the INSERT plus SPACE BAR, followed by O commands,

 

The following commands are available in the OCR layer.
Acquire and OCR a print document from a Scanner or Freedom Scientific Camera such as PEARL, using the letter A.
OCR a scanned PDF Document opened in Acrobat Reader using the letter D.
From Windows Explorer, you can OCR any Image File using the letter F.
From the computer screen itself, you can OCR a Control with C, Window with W, or the entire Screen with S.

You can press Q to quit or cancel an OCR job.

 

Note:

 

From the computer screen itself, you can OCR a Control with C, Window with W, or the entire Screen with S.

There would be no point of OCR ing a control if there were no way of interacting with the control which was OCR'ed.

When you do OCR with Jaws, it is just text, not active content like on a web page.

So you cannot, it's just a text copy.

HTH.

Hi,

 

Hope this isn’t a stupid question but wondering how I would click on a button when using Jaws OCR to read content in an application?

 

Thanks
