I just tested the command and it brought up the list of drivers, two for my Cannon LIDE 110 and 1 for my wife's Brother all-in-one on our home network. I pick the twain driver for my Cannon LIDE 110 and it works fine.

If the scanner isn't showing up, then a reboot should fix it.

Or, reach out to Tech support to see if there is a specific setting in Windows you need to do.

Sometimes I will get this same message and I can shut down JAWS and restart JAWS and the scanner will show.

Hi Mario,

The scanner needs to have a TWAIN Driver. But having said that, I have a Plustek A320L that is TWAIN Compatible but it does not work with Convenient OCR.

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?

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.
