Do you know if there is a twain driver installed? And if either Openbook or Jaws are using it?


"You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space, that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young."
"Why, what did she tell you?"

It may make a difference.
I've typically preferred to connect WIFI printers to the router and access
them through the network, instead of my computer having to negotiate another
WIFI connection.
Some of these devices you can connect them either way, and turn off its WIFI
and just plug it into the router.

There is no direct connect Glen. Just wifi.

I have done that. Both Openbook and JAWS acknowledge that they see
it, but nothing happens.

Hi Ann,

Have you selected HP as the scanner in Openbook? If not open OB and
press, Alt + A, to open the advanced menu, down arrow to, Device
selection and press enter.
You should now be on, Scanner, so tab 1 time into the list of
options, arrow up / down to select the one you want, then tab to,
Okay, and press enter.
Remember to save your settings.

Stay safe and take care. Mike.

So far I can't get JAWS OCR (or Openbook) to scan with the HP Office
pro 8020 all-in-one printer/scannner. Windows fax and scan works
with it with no problem, but although JAWS lists the scanner as a
source, says it is processing, gives no error message ... the scanner
just sits there doing nothing. Any clue how to make the stinker work?
