I thought there was a difference between what adobe usually did, and the ocr feature.
I've got a couple of books I'd like to be able to read, and couldn't. I'll try again with the new jaws.

Subject: Re: Adobe Acrobat Reader DC document says blank
I have the latest JAWS, but it is not doing the automatic OCR, because I don’t think that the document is an OCR image, and that is what I find it strange that JAWS is not reading it. What I did was that |I selected and pasted the document to MS Word, and then I was able to read it. Any idea what should I do to make JAWS recognize it?
Assuming that you are running a recent version of Jaws and are using Adobe Reader to open the PDF file, Jaws will perform an automatic OCR and attempt to read the context of the document to you.
I know that Jaws 2021 and 2022 will do the automatic OCR. I am not certain how far back you need to go when this feature was built into the program.
I had this problem in the past and FS had me perform a Jaws repair and the problem was resolved. Jaws recognizes that the PDF is a scanned image and attempts to perform an OCR to read the context of the image to you.
How do you ocr a document with adobe?
JAWS should have prompted you to OCR the document. If it did not, something else is going on.
I opened an Adobe Acrobat Reader DC document, and JAWS says blank. How can I make JAWS recognize it?
