Some Questions on new OCR component of Jaws 13


Tom Behler
 

Hello, all.

I have heard that Jaws 13 now has an OCR component that can be used to read PDF files that typically have not been accessible to us in the past.

I have two questions relating to this issue:

1. How do you access the OCR software in Jaws 13 when trying to read a PDF document? Are commands needed, or is it done automatically, once the document is opened? and

2. Does the software do anything in terms of reading scanned image PDF files?

Thanks very much!
