Alternately your client can try zamzar.com
They convert files from many types, including PDF, to many other types and return the converted file as an email.

Ann,

Ed mentioned OmniPage, and others alluded to it. Compared to Kurzweil and
Openbook, it is pretty inexpensive. At the company's website, it is listed
at $149, but you can probably get it cheaper via Google. I find the program
both easy to use and quick to convert. It also saves me from dependence on a
third party.

Here's Nuance's description of its OmniPage 18 product:

Re: sharing documents via facebook.

Amar Jain
 

Hey Dave,
Thanks for pointing that out. If the policy of the list doesn’t allow us to discuss anything except Jaws, then I’ll keep that in mind for future. I wasn’t aware of the same.
But for now, I’ll be highly obliged if any lister can help me out in cracking this problem, though off the list keeping the guidelines of the list in mind.
At the outset, I apologize for posting contrary to the list guidelines; I had no intention of violating the guidelines, I wasn’t aware of this guideline.
Thanks Dave once again for pointing that out.
Regards
Amar Jain.

Convenient OCR reads the current page, but not the whole document. For myself I use OpenBook, because I have it. My student, however, does not have an OCR program, so I'm looking for alternatives.

I know you received a discouraging reply earlier, but I'm wondering if you

Re: pdf's with JAWS--is there still a place to e-mail a pdf image for OCR?

Soronel Haetir
 

I've now used the convenient OCR on a few scanned PDFs and it
generally works pretty well. Not as good as the sort of product(s) Ed
mentions (the convenient OCR can only do whatever is actually
on-screen where a real OCR package can do the entire file in one go),
but if this sort of thing is only incidental for you then the new jaws
feature may well be more than enough.

An empty document, of course, means it is a scanned image. You will need an OCR (optical character recognition) package. JAWS 13, allegedly, has a light-weight OCR component built in.
I use an off-the-shelf product called OmniPage. I just tell it to convert the document. One has an option to interpret from a scanner or from a file.
There is a companion product called PDF Converter which operates as an Outlook plug-in. It works pretty well.
I know there is something called VizWhiz (sp?) where iPhone users can get sighted help. I've heard of some people taking a picture of the computer's screen and sending it to VizWhiz for interpretation. I've never tried that personally.

Subject: pdf's with JAWS--is there still a place to e-mail a pdf image for OCR?

When JAWS reports "empty document', is there a place to e-mail it for
interpretation?

thanks,

Ann

JAWS and Windows Mail

Rick Roderick <rickrod@...>
 

Hello, everyone,

Here is a message that is definitely on-topic.

I have Windows Vista on a 32-bit machine. Windows Mail came preinstalled.
When I write an address with autocomplete, it comes up properly. I can hear
it in JAWS, but on the Focus 40, all that appears is a semicolon. How do I
get addresses to appear properly. I am using structured mode.

The same kind of thing happens in Winamp, though not to the same degree.
How do I get all of my bookmarks to appear as I scroll to them? Right now,
they work to a point. Then, I can only hear them.

Dacia,

If you tab until you're in the search heading of your Internet Browser, I
think there's a tool bar section. Perhaps pressing spacebar there will open
any toolbars available?

Other than that, I never willingly wander into that part of the browser, so
don't know.

Hi,

I've just added the universal wish list button for amazon.com it says
it's on my command bar. How do I get to that bar using keystrokes and
access the buttons found on it?

thanks

Dacia

Hi All,
I am looking at the possibility of sharing documents via facebook page.
Directly it is not possible, and I have tried using an app called docs.com,
developed by microsoft and facebook.
Though it is allowing me to share and view the document on my wall, but it
is not allowing me to do the same on my facebook page.
Can you advise me what can be the solution / other possibilities for the
same?
Regards
Amar Jain.
