Not sure you can. The only place where I saw adjustments was when using an external camera or scanner on a paper document (Insert+Spacebar, O, A). Otherwise you'll need to consider Openbook, Kurzweil, or some other standalone scanning/OCR program.
 
If you do have Openbook, have you tried using the Freedom Import Printer feature on your PDF file?

Subject: Fixing JAWS OCR accuracy?

Hello all,

I was just using the OCR on a pdf. I noticed that there was a problem.

This happened to be an invoice that I need to pay.

I got down to the  Sub total line and all was fine until the taxes were added and the line that said Balance Due.

The final balance Due was not correct.

The OCR cut off the line.

If I had believed this and not questioned it and found a pair of eyes to confirm I would have miss paid the bill.

Subtotal was 202.65 and the balance Due said 202

 

I would have short paid .65 to the vendor.

How can I make the OCR be accurate?

I also notice this on the time tracking software we use. There is a screen that JAWS will not read with the virtual curser, mouse curser, and not even the touch curser. There is no PC curser in the window.

I have to OCR the window to get any info from it.

Often and very often it will lie to me and cut off parts of the time entries. It may say something like

Time in 7:00am

Out time 10:30AM

4/18/2018 56 38am (it Left off the leading 6)

4/18/18/2018 0:28:12AM(it left off the leading 1)

This is the “Raw” time of the actual punch into the clock. The system rounds to the nearest 15 minute.

When JAWS doesn’t tell me the truth I am forced to get someone over here to look over my shoulder and tell me what is really on the screen.

Why can’t it be accurate?

Is there any settings that I can do/change to correct this?

 

 

I just don’t feel good that my screen reader is not telling me the truth and I can’t rely on it.

 

Thanks for any pointers.

I noticed  this too.  Here’s what I’m doing.

 

1. Focus on the first entry in the group list

2. Route JAWS to PC and  use the JAWS cursor to navigate among the entries

3. When focused on an entry you’d like to edit, route PC to JAWS. This places focus on the  same entry as the JAWS Cursor

 

Edit as needed, rinse and repeat.

Hello, everyone.

 

I think I have posted this quiry before, and probably need to call either VFO or the Microsoft Accessibility Hotline about this, but I thought I’d give it one more try here.

 

Ever since either a Jaws update, or an Office 365 update, I am no longer able to navigate and edit the entries in an e-mail group like I used to be able to do.

 

The arrow keys no longer work, in that I get stuck on the first entry in the group, and can’t navigate any further.

 

 

I can use my Jaws cursor to read the members of the group, but that is not helpful when I want to delete or edit one of the group entries.

 

If anyone has experienced this issue, and found a work-around, please let me know.

 

I’m using the latest build of Jaws 2018, and Office 365 on a Windows 7 laptop here.

If the pdf is protected you might want to ask the person that has the file if they would give you a unprotected copy of the file.

 

I had to call Yamaha for a synthesizer pdf file in unprotected mode, and they sent me a copy of the unprotected copy.

 

There probably are tools out there on the web that could unlock an protected file.

moderated Re: JFW16, Win10, and Video Intercept Error Msg

Sieghard Weitzel <sieghard@...>
 

Jaws 16 was compatible with the early versions of Windows 10, but I don't think it is any more since the Fall Creator's update which came out last September/October. Maybe I'm wrong on this and if I am somebody will probably correct me, but I think you may need to upgrade your Jaws. Windows 10 so far seems to be getting a major update every 6 month and the spring update is about to come out, Jaws 16 even if it still is supposed to work with last fall's update will probably no longer work with the spring update and going forward you really need to be on Jaws 2018 and, if possible keep your SMA up to date, after all, it's only $5/month ($120 every 2 years).

Cell b7 has the value 62.06

 

When I go down to cell b500 it will read the value in cell b4 of 73.86. Not sure how what showed above would make the value in cell b4 be read before the value in cell b500.

Nonetheless I did now try to use the control-f12 to get the same dialogue.  I am not hearing the number of files/folders using this either.  I guess maybe the few changes I made may of caused this.  Any other ideas?

When you press CTRL-O in Microsoft Word, you enter Backstage View.  This is a custom interface of Microsoft Office 2016 and isn’t the Open File dialog to which you’ve become accustomed.

 

To open the “Open File” dialog of Windows, press CTRL-F12.  Once you open the dialog, press SHIFT-TAB until focus is in the list view.  Once in the list view, JAWS announces the number of items in the focused folder.

I did try and couldn’t get it to work. At least I thought it didn’t work. What is odd is the headings are two rows up from where the actual value is read. So it says the number in the cell when I’m down in a lower cell in the same column. Is there a way to check if the title and range are setup?

Could you have titles or regions going?

Subject: Excel, Jaws 2018 reading value in different cell

 

Hello, I have a spread sheet setup with many columns. Then down 300 rows is a total row. For some reason when I’m on the total row which has a formula for all values in the column, Jaws is reading the value in the second row of the same column before it reads the actual value in the cell. Is there a setting in Jaws causing this or is something in Excel I need to change?

OK, Cathyanne. That worked, along with unchecking the virtual ribbon, which I didn’t know she had left checked.

When already focused in a ribbon, the key tips won’t work. She’s have to TAB to the ribbon commands.

 

If you want to use the keys, open the ribbon with ALT-H and then use the keystrokes.

The message tab is the correct tab. Sorry about that. It uses the same key tip as Home ribbons in other applications (ALT-H).

Hi, Cathyanne. My friend has Outlook 2016. Once she opens a message and presses the ALT key, there is no HOME tab, only a message tab, a FILE tab, and a HELP tab.

 

This is making it impossible to find the ACTION tab or button. Consequently, there is no View in Browser command. If my friend types ALT  plus H, she is immediately in the HELP tab.

In Outlook 2016, Within an open email, do the following:

 

  1. Open the Home ribbon (ALT-H)
  2. Open the “Action” command (A)
  3. Within the drop-down list, activate “view in Browser” (V)

 

You may get a dialog warning you of viruses.  If you’re sure you want to open the email in your browser, activate the OK button. 

There’s also a checkbox to never be asked that question again that you can check.

 

After you activate the OK button, the email opens in your default browser.

Hello. In Outlook 2010, there is a combination of keystrokes that allow an email to be displayed in an Internet Browser from the Outlook 2016 email client.

This key combination is:

ALT plus H, A, V. This key combination does not work in Outlook 2016. can someone tell me what the steps are to view an email in the browser from the Outlook

2016 email client? I am not trying to view it by logging in on the web. I am trying to get Outlook 2016 itself to open the email in an html document using

the web browser.

 

Thank you.
