I heard 8 is sufficient, but if you can afford it increasing to 12 or
even 16 would give some pep.

Hi,
8 GB of Ram should be perfectly adequate for a Win10 machine with JAWS 2018.

Let's do a bit more digging here...Are you in Windows Explorer, and highlighting a PDF file? Then press the Application key (or Shift+F10) and read the context menu that pops up.Let us know what you find there.

John,
 
As to your question on Doxillion, it appears that JAWS allows us to use a non-commercial free version. If you've never used it, the context menu has a "convert document" choice when you highlight a PDF file in Windows Explorer on the first interaction. If you do select that "convert document" option you are presented with a dialog to download Doxillion, and gives you the choice of doing so. Once you complete the download and install, it will run Doxillion to allow converting that file you highlighted. Subsequent interactions with the context menu on a PDF document will then offer you the  "Convert with Doxillion" choice.
 
Again it appears that JAWS has some sort of relationship with NCH software to offer this from their context menu. It does not show up when you use NVDA, for example.

You don’t have the convert files feature because you don’t have other NCH software programs on your computer.

 

The file doesn’t go anywhere. It is in your Vertual buffer. It can be read by arrowing up and down. If you want to copy the whole pdf into a document, use CONTROL plus A to select the whole document, then paste it into a word processor document, or into Notepad.

 

One thing, even when the document appears to have finished processing, it might not be finished. Use CONTROL plus the END key to get to what is at the end of the vertual buffer. Make sure it doesn’t say something like continuing processing. If it says anything like this, the document isn’t fully processed. Wait until pressing CONTROL plus END doesn’t yield this result, then select, copy to clipboard, then paste into a text editor or word processor and save.

Mmm I followed this with a pdf file and Jaws 2018, I kind of heard something seemed to happened but nothing appears on the screen and the file stays the same, does the recognized file go somewhere? A folder? As also there’s no convert feature either, I am using windows 7 64bit, could that be why?

Howdy Y'all,

 

I would like to share something I found using the Recognize With JAWS feature in Jaws2018 when I used this to read a PDF file today.

 

After scanning a 100 page cordless phone user manual I wanted to converted to a different format, but while in this OCR mode I couldn't bring up a file menu, but when I opened the context menu I had a convert file option.  I said, what the hell, pressed enter on it, & to my surprise a conversion program installation window popped up asking me if I would like to install, Doxillion Document Converter, by NCH Software!

 

Well, I installed the little program, & this little gem will convert PDF files into something like 13 or 17 different formats.  What's even more cool, it put an option in the context menu so this program can now be used with all versions of Jaws I have installed.  I don't know exactly why or what made this installation program option pop-up, but I'm assuming it's because I've got a couple of NCH programs on my computer, and I'm sure glad it did come up!  This Doxillion Document Converter really works, gurhrhrhrhrhhrhrhrhhrhrhrhrhhrrhrhhrhr ate!

 

If any of you have a chance to click on the convert file option while using the Recognize with Jaws, feature, & you get this install dialogue, I would suggest running it!  If you don't like it, it can uninstalled through the Control Panel / Programs & Features.

 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

I just tried going to a folder of PDF’s with Windows Explorer on Windows 10 Home 64 bit with Jaws 2018, using the context menu to use the Recognize With Jaws option and got the message that the OCR component is not installed.

Yet, I have used Jaws to scan a document on my flatbed scanner.

I am always connected to the internet, so Jaws 2018 was installed while I had internet connectivity.

Is there some other mysterious install file I am supposed to find?

Jim,
 
Sounds like you're not using the context menu in a file list to start. Use Explo0ere to find a PDF file, and while it's highlighted, press the Application key or Shift+F10 to bring up the context menu. There you should find "Recognize with JAWS". Press enter on that choice and sit back for a while, listening to the clicking sound.

You don’t have the convert files feature because you don’t have other NCH software programs on your computer.

 

The file doesn’t go anywhere. It is in your Vertual buffer. It can be read by arrowing up and down. If you want to copy the whole pdf into a document, use CONTROL plus A to select the whole document, then paste it into a word processor document, or into Notepad.

I would like to share something I found using the Recognize With JAWS feature in Jaws2018 when I used this to read a PDF file today.

 

After scanning a 100 page cordless phone user manual I wanted to converted to a different format, but while in this OCR mode I couldn't bring up a file menu, but when I opened the context menu I had a convert file option.  I said, what the hell, pressed enter on it, & to my surprise a conversion program installation window popped up asking me if I would like to install, Doxillion Document Converter, by NCH Software! 

 

Well, I installed the little program, & this little gem will convert PDF files into something like 13 or 17 different formats.  What's even more cool, it put an option in the context menu so this program can now be used with all versions of Jaws I have installed.  I don't know exactly why or what made this installation program option pop-up, but I'm assuming it's because I've got a couple of NCH programs on my computer, and I'm sure glad it did come up!  This Doxillion Document Converter really works, gurhrhrhrhrhhrhrhrhhrhrhrhrhhrrhrhhrhr ate!

 

If any of you have a chance to click on the convert file option while using the Recognize with Jaws, feature, & you get this install dialogue, I would suggest running it!  If you don't like it, it can uninstalled through the Control Panel / Programs & Features.

Interesting, and here I presumed it was all part of the built-in JAWS Convenient OCR feature. I just tried it from the context menu with the latest JAWS 2018 and got two different results:
 
First try -- "JAWS OCR Component Failed to Start" and then an extremely slow click sound (roughly 15 seconds between clicks. Figuring that JAWS was again bogging down  I used the JAWS three-finger salute (Insert+Windows+F4) to restart JAWS.
 
Second try -- "Started" and clicking at about a 5 second rate, and the OCR results screen showed up after 30 seconds. This is a two-page PDF file.
 
Jim, try the three-finger JAWS salute and see if your experience changes.

Re: Any good Hex Editors?

WAV files is raw representation of audio file. So when the header is corrupt, a software might still be able to play it out and then save it with correct information.

In your case, I guess the problem is more serious. Not only the header is missing but also the file content.

You can try send it to me for quick inspection but I cannot guarantee anything.

Hi,

 

Ah, in which case I’m not sure how to fix it, since Audacity is what I would have used myself to try and import and then export with, you mentioned you’ve tried importing it as raw data, I don’t know too much about this, but if you try and play it in raw data format in audacity it won’t work  if its corrupt, you would then need to go to export  as audio and then save it somewhere making sure in the save as window you have selected file type as WAV. Then find the file you’ve just saved and see if that plays correctly. Unfortunately other than that I’m not too sure of anything else I can suggest to help,,  sorry. Hope you manage to get it all sorted though.

Hi,

Although I don’t know any good hex editors, in fact for that matter I’m not sure I even know what one is lol. But as an alternative  solution , you could try converting the broken wav file to a different file format, which makes a new version of the sound and may fix the broken attributes too, , then you can just re convert the file back to WAV. There are plenty of online sites that will convert WAV to another format. I do a little programing to write audio games, , and every now and again I’ll come across a wav file that won’t play, in which case I just add the wav file to my music editor software , then export it back out as a WAV file, which is doing the same as I mentioned above , but just using the program I have, but that’s always worked in the past. I’ve put the link for two  websites below, one which converts files from WAV to mp3, and then another which converts mp3 files to WAV. Hopefully this fixes your issue, but if you have any problems, if it’s just one WAV file that’s broken if you can find a way of sending me the WAV file I can always try running it through my music  editing software and seeing if that fixes it for you.

However, I'm not sure where I can find any good Hex editors that would work with JAWS. Anybody have any pointers?

After scanning a 100 page cordless phone user manual I wanted to converted to a different format, but while in this OCR mode I couldn't bring up a file menu, but when I opened the context menu I had a convert file option.  I said, what the hell, pressed enter on it, & to my surprise a conversion program installation window popped up asking me if I would like to install, Doxillion Document Converter, by NCH Software! 

 

Well, I installed the little program, & this little gem will convert PDF files into something like 13 or 17 different formats.  What's even more cool, it put an option in the context menu so this program can now be used with all versions of Jaws I have installed.  I don't know exactly why or what made this installation program option pop-up, but I'm assuming it's because I've got a couple of NCH programs on my computer, and I'm sure glad it did come up!  This Doxillion Document Converter really works, gurhrhrhrhrhhrhrhrhhrhrhrhrhhrrhrhhrhr ate!

 

If any of you have a chance to click on the convert file option while using the Recognize with Jaws, feature, & you get this install dialogue, I would suggest running it!  If you don't like it, it can uninstalled through the Control Panel / Programs & Features.

 

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.
