moderated Re: scanning with JAWS


when I do insert+space bar then o and a, I get the message OCR Failed to start. No supported cameras or scanners available.

I opened Device Manager, and after right arrowing on Imaging devices, there is EPSON Perfection V600 listed. so why do I get that the OCR is not supported? I thought it worked with any flat bed scanner that Windows recognizes?

You have to do Jaws Key (insert) plus space bar, then o, then a.

O for OCR, then A for acquire.

Or press insert+spacebar, then O then question armk to get a list of the
keys which are given with the assumption of pressing insert+spacebar,
then o first.

Insert+spacebar then A, toggles the Text Analyzer.

Some time back, someone posted how to scan with jaws. It’s been a while
and I forgot how. I did it before and really need to try it again. Did
we use Freedom Scientific’s import printer? Or did I dream it up?
Anyway, Open Book isn’t scanning well, and I need accuracy.

Thanks for any help.
