moderated Re: Jaws and OCR?


I believe adobe acrobat/reader is not needed to use the convenient OCR feature. when focused on a PDF, just press the application key, arrow down to and enter on use Convenient OCR or similar. after the process is finished, you'll be able to navigate, select and copy text as if you were in a word processor.

Hi All,

At work, I have Jaws 2020 with Windows 10, I believe.

I have Adobe Acrobat Pro.

When I open PDF documents from the data bases we use, sometimes, I’m
told that the document is empty. I am then asked if I want Jaws to use
OCR for recognition.

I of course say yes, and things work beautifully.

How can I get this to work at home?

I have Jaws 2020 and Windows 10 but I don’t have Adobe Acrobat.

Will I need this to use Jaw’s OCR capabilities?
