And I don't know how to answer that, exactly.   What's speaking is your screen reader, and that's because there's something there that it sees to speak.

I suspect if you uncheck everything under Location bar (except perhaps open tabs, but you might even want to get rid of that) followed by cleaning up your existing history there should be nothing that pops-up for your screen reader to speak.

If that doesn't do it then start looking at the various options under History to try to prevent the storage of certain data and/or use Private Browsing at all times, which will keep nothing and allow nothing to pop up (that isn't already in your regular browser history, and if that is purged then nothing at all).

Steps taken:
located the file in my user folder

pressed O and then D


I did the same thing again today. When I get to the press of the d, I get a sound and nothing happens. Is it possible I a) either made a mistake in what I did, or b) changed something in Jaws that won't allow me to do this now?

The documentation on OCR states that you have to open the .PDF file first. Then you can go through the steps you outlined.

I didn't see in your list of the steps you took that you opened the .PDF file.

Re: Win 7 VS win 10

 

The principle of learning to use the native interface that you're presented with rather than adding layers on top of it to emulate an old one is an important one in my experience.

If you're like most individuals I've known, you will find yourself on another computer (or other computers) away from home that may even have the software you're used to (e.g., JAWS, NVDA, etc.) but where you are not able to make changes to settings or the like.

If you have become dependent on something like the virtual ribbon, Classic Shell, etc., you are up the proverbial creek without a paddle.  In addition, if you have a very good memory about where you are in a given program and what you need to do to get out gracefully, you can do so if your screen reader suddenly refuses to speak for some reason.

for now, this will help a lot in getting through all of the extra email. I

Dennis,

           Go there and read them.  I, or any other outside individual, cannot tell you which of these options you may or may not want checked and they are self-explanatory (or if you hit one that's not then ask about it specifically).

I don't know how your system is set up, but most systems open PDF's with Acrobat Reader (or some similar product)by default. When you hear the words "empty document," then you initiate Convenient OCR.

OK, what am I supposed to open it with, grin. If I press enter on it,
it opens with either the Microsoft image viewer or Balabolka. Of
course, Balabolka can read some pdf files, so it is not necessary to do
anything else. I am truely lost here, as I don't think I pressed enter
on anything the first time.

Hi,

I would like to read a pdf file with the Convenient OCR program. It is
not working. I did it once on the first day I received my copy of Jaws.

Steps taken:
located the file in my user folder
pressed jaws key plus spacebar
pressed O and then D


I did the same thing again today. When I get to the press of the d, I
get a sound and nothing happens. Is it possible I a) either made a
mistake in what I did, or b) changed something in Jaws that won't allow
me to do this now?

Thanks for the help.

Carol

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Carol:

I had this exact same problem with an earlier version of Jaws 18 here.

I recently upgraded to Jaws 18.0.2945, and now, Convenient OCR works fine.

Not sure what the issue was with the earlier version, but the update seems to have corrected it.

From what I can tell, you are doing the steps correctly.

I'm using Windows 7 here.
