moderated Re: what are everyone using to read pdf files

I have several different programs that I have in my toolbox but if you have been following the progress of updates for JAWS from Vispero/Freedom Scientific the OCR program that is part of JAWS 2020 and beyond will do a great job of reading PDF’s.


The OCR program that is part of JAWS will also scan a print page if you have a scanner that is either a flatbed or a camera like the Pearl from Freedom Scientific.


If you are interested in knowing what programs I have in my toolbox you will need to write me off list.

I know this is super late, but I use Abbyy Fine Reader. I love it! It is expensive, but it is well worth it, because it also reads PDFs that are images. It makes for a very useful tool, and I feel as though it pays for itself within even the first couple of uses.
