Now, sometimes I cannot convert to OCR an image PDF document

Peter Tesar
 

Hello List,


There are two ways to use the Jaws OCR to convert an image PDF file.

I have noticed a change when trying one way, the other still works.

 

I recently had to switch to a new hard disk. This meant I had to download and install: Windows 10 version 1809, the latest Jaws 2019 and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC v19.10.200.

 

Before this complete upgrade, I could open a PDF image file either as a Thunderbird attachment or by pressing ENTER on the PDF file in the directory tree. There was then a Yes/No prompt for Jaws to do the OCR of the document.

 

Now, there is no “alert empty document” message nor is there the prompt to do the OCR.

 

I get the Virtual cursor. It is a blank window but the Jaws plus page-down command gives: Start free trial.

 

When I turn off the Virtual cursor and start the OCR with

  Jaws plus space bar then o.

 

Pressing “d” (for a document), I get: OCR failed to start.

Pressing “w” (for a window), gives me the OCR converted text.

 

The PDF document is converted but,

On the right of some lines are these statements:

   Create PDF

   Edit PDF

   With Acrobat Pro DC

   Start free trial

 

The second way to convert PDF to text, still works. Highlight the PDF file in the directory tree or File Explorer,

the applications key has:    select “convenient OCR with Jaws”.

 

When I do an OCR of the window, the PDF and Pro DC message share the window. This seems to prevent Jaws from converting the PDF document.

 

How do I get rid of the start free trial with Acrobat Pro DC?

 

Thanks,

Peter T.

When I want to edit a contact in the N3FJP software, I hit control q which takes me to my list of contacts.  I highlight the contact I wish to edit, and then tab over to edit.  Once I’ve done the needed editing, I tab over to done, and the process is complete.

 

I hope this helps, but if I’m misunderstanding your question, please let me know.

Greetings,
I am having an issue with a logging program for amateur radio.  When i attempt to edit a contact from a previous entry, I am bounced out and dropped to the front page of the logging program.  I have had a sighted person view this activity via remote and states that it appears that Jaws is preventing me from the editing process.  I am also prevented from entering a directory within the logging program.  Have spoken with the logging author and suspects either Jaws or anti-virus as the cause.  If it were an anti-virus issue, I would think that importing and exporting data would be prevented as well, but that piece works just fine.  I am running Jaws 19 and Windows 10.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thank you,

In my direct experience, the JAWS folks have a very lax attitude towards fixing broken Research-It links.  The weather feature broke 2-3 JAWS versions ago, I reported the problem 3 times, and it is still broken.  I do not understand their delay in fixing what I believe are popular features.  The weather feature was my favorite. 

 

JAWS could push down a very small update that deals only with the Research-It issues.

Re: reading acrobat

Chris Hill
 

Hello.  I had an issue with jaws and adobe a while back.  The documents all looked blank to jaws.  I finally had to call fs and they said to look in edit/preferences in adobe, look in the "security enhanced" section, and uncheck the box that said enable protected mode at startup.  Hopefully that will fix your problem.

This behavior seems to have started after March update of Jaws 2019.

 

I can read my credit statement statements downloaded in pdf format only in this way: with Magic also running, I can drop the mouse cursor down over the top of the statement and Jaws starts reading as if say all mode. I can’t stop and restart reading except by starting over as described.

 

I cannot seem to get Jaws to focus and read anything in any other way. Yes, Magic seems to also have to be running.

 

This all seems very strange to me.

I wish I could take credit for it but a much wiser, more experienced transcriptionist turned me on to this.  I particularly like the "lamp on" noise as a very subtle sound for proofing.

Subject: adding a sound in jaws dictionary

Hey guys:

How does one find the folder that stores the available sounds to choose
when adding a sound to a jaws dictionary entry?

I’d like to either add more sounds to the list of sounds available, or,

Alternatively, Go into that folder and modify a “wav” file to make a
better quality sound for the dictionary entery?

Please advise as you like.

Mike M.

Re: adding a sound in jaws dictionary

Van Lant, Robin
 

I have seen this setting in the Dictionary, but am curious as to ideas for when people are using this.  So far, the only dictionary entries I have made are when Vocalizer mis-pronounces a word.

Hi Mario & Michael,

 

Check out Richard's post.  It has the correct file path to where all the sounds are stored.


Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.

when choosing a sound as you refered to, there are 108 wav files to
choose from.
  the shared path that I have is "C:\ProgramData\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\2018\SETTINGS\enu\SOUNDS\" but that folder gives me only
18 wav files.
and when I navigate to "C:\Users\Mario\AppData\Roaming\Freedom
Scientific\JAWS\2018\Settings\enu\Sounds" there are 0 files.
so at this point, I am somewhat confused where the rest of the sounds
are coming from.

OK
I am using josh’s 2019 in the latest update.
Therefore, when I go into the dictionary and select the sound it doesn’t
show me the folder path.
So knowing that I’m using jars 2019 the latest build,
How do I determine what that path is, whether it’s shared or users?

my educated guess is that the sounds come from either the user sounds
folder or the shared sounds folder. the path to these folders may differ
in respect to what version of JAWS you're using.

and I think you can just add the sounds you want to use as long as they
are in the .wav format. and modifying existing ones shouldn't present a
problem.
