Re: ReadIRIS version 12

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

It's probably not a demo. My copy came on a disk that contained all the printer software, and accessing the OCR has been a real pain. 'the good news is that it worked the only time I ever used it a couple of years ago. The bad news is it's almost impossible to activate, as my copy buried itself somewhere in HP Solutions, and it can't be called up separately from the keyboard. I'd like to get together with you off list and cuss and discuss this package.

Subject: ReadIRIS version 12

We just bought a new HP printer and it came with an OCR CD for ReadIRIS version 12. Just wondering if anyone has used this OCR software and how it might work with JAWS 13? I found a very old online manual for version 6 from 2000 online, but that's of limited value since it is very much out of date.

I do have an older version of Kurzweil, and the Hp scanning functions work very nicely with it. But just curious about ReadIRIS. I also dont' know if this is a full copy or a demo version that came with the printer.

Hi Kevin,

Below is another thing to try:

While in Windows Explorer, go to Tools and then folder options.
Next, move to the view tab, and then the tree-view, and uncheck the
following:
show preview handlers in preview payne.
This problem does not occur on every Win7 machine, but we have found that
unchecking this option has corrected the problem on several systems.
This crops up on some 32 and 64-bit systems.
Take care.

Re: pdf files with two columns

NUEVA LUZ
 

Hello. You can also hold down the windows key and alt. while pressing down arrow, this way Jaws will read each row completely, regardless the number of columnss.
If you wish to read more than once a given row, press windows key and comma simultaneusly as many times you want to reread that complete row. I hope it makes some sense. I apologize for my English.

If you're allowed to copy and paste the material,
copy to clipboard the info,
paste it to a word processor that handles columns.
Go to the column feature in your word processor and change from two columns to one column.

You could try using the frame viewer.
Define two frames.
One frame for the left-hand column and another frame for the right-hand column.

You might try changing the reading order. Not sure if this will help, but worth a try! Press CTRL plus k to go to preferences, arrow up or down to reading, tab once, and you will find three choices to choose from.

Ryan,
Is this a paper for a school, and do you have any DSS resources on campus
that could help you with this. I'm only asking because when I was in
college, I graduated last year, I had this same problem and had the DSS
staff help me out. I had a number of text resources that needed to be
translated so I could read them and I knew it would take hours and hours to
translate them myself. Just a suggestion.

some navigation quick keys not working in Word

Cynthia Bruce
 

Hi All,

Using JAWS 14 and MSW 2007, I am finding all of a sudden that the quick keys for actions such as selecting text between a marked place and the current place in text is not working. Since I downloaded JAWS 14, these things seem to be working intermittently, and even though I have the keyboard settings set to laptop, that particular command only seems to work with the caps lock key, not the insert key.

Anyone know how I can fix this?

Cynthia
