moderated Re: Microsoft default OCR engine with JAWS convenient OCR

Hi guys:

I have been following this thread, and,
My question is,
How does one change ocr's on the fly?
Or can we?
How do we know which one we are using at the time of ocr on files?

Please advise as you like.

Mike M.

Maybe so, but I've gotten pure garbage from the JAWS default engine but got decent results from the same document from the Microsoft engine.

And then again I've also gotten garbage from Microsoft's engine and got good results from the default engine.

So I prefer to think that it depends on what you are scanning.
