Re: Convenient OCR not so much


Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Yes. It's a baby step, but it works. Once in a while, someone in my
cabinet sends out a PDF image file, and I have used it successfully. I'd
hate like the dickens to read the great American novel with it, but it
works.

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.
