Re: Convenient OCR not so much

I thought it was just me. I also receive documents that the sender swears
are PDF's. When I start converting them, I hear the dreaded "empty
document". Since I have a little sight, I can see that the screen is, in
fact, not empty. I go to the JAWS cursor and try to read it, but get
nothing. Am I missing a step, or is this just a dud?

Subject: Convenient OCR not so much

All:
I thought there might be one redeeming virtue to JAWS 13, namely, Convenient
OCR, or whatever it is called.
I regularly receive PDF documents that are, in fact, images. I also receive
faxes occasionally.
They are in TIF format.
I've tried the "S" for screen and the "W" for window options.
I regularly get utterly useless information.
Has anyone successfully scanned anything useful with this very ineffective
OCR?
Seriously, if I didn't have so much free disk space, I'd totally delete JAWS
13, the utterly most worthless version of JAWS ever -- nominated for the
Hall of Shame.
