Tom,

Also on that page there's an audio file where they actually talk about the
OCR. The link:

September 2011 FSCast.


I'm telling you all this as a way to help others answer the very same
questions.

Tom, using it on scanned pdf's is kind of the whole point.

Press insert+space then O for OCR. Then you decide whether you want
the window, screen, or control recognized.

This doesn't take the place of using a dedicated OCR program to
deal with these situations, such as K1000, Openbook, Omnipage,
Textbridge ( if it's still available), FineReader, etc.

Access Key in Firefox?

Brandon Keith Biggs <brandonboy13@...>
 

Hello,
I’m on a school website called Etudes and I’m using Firefox to take some quizzes that crash in IE. I’m wondering if there is something special I need to do to use the short cut key commands?
The access key in Firefox is alt + shift. I’ve tried using this, but Jaws says “Not in a table.” Is there a way to bypass this function so I can hit alt shift n and alt shift f along with all the other shortcut commands?
I’m using Jaws 11 with Windows 7.
Thank you,

Brandon Keith Biggs

Re: No OCR function in thumb drive version of JAWS 13?

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

Now's probably no time to tell you this, but, should you ever need to
know, the module is available in the JAWS download area. Just go to FS,
call a links list, and hit the letter D. Scroll down and you'll find
it.

As there isn't an actual setup file for the thumb drive version of

Any information is greatly appreciated,

To copy the text you want to highlight to the clipboard, first virtualize
the focused window with the JAWS command Insert-Control-W or Insert-Shifft-W
for JAWS 11 and higher. Once the window is virtualized, you can highlight
and copy text as you normally would. Once you have copied the highlighted
text to the clipboard, press Escape to exit the virtualized window and
return to normal mode.

Re: Reading spaces in a Word Doc

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

One thing you'll notice about Text Analyzer; it should be called "Line
Analyzer," rather like the stone-age text editor, Edlin. For instance,
if you enclose a phrase in parentheses, and that phrase extends past a
line brake, Analyzer will report it as an error. It sees only one
parenthesis at a time, not realizing they're a matched set.

Subject: RE: Reading spaces in a Word Doc

If you are doing serious proof-reading, text analyzer can be pretty
useful, particularly if you typically do not add two spaces at the end
of sentences.
You can find out about text analyzer by pressing Insert and the number 6
on the top row of keys on your keyboard.
That will put you in a search box. Type in the word "text" and hit
return.
You will get a list. Actually, you could have typed in "Text Analyzer"
to go straight to Text Analyzer, but I thought seeing all the text
processing options might be useful for someone who is jumping from JAWS
8 to 13.
When you get to Text Analyzer, press right arrow to open up the options.
It can be turned off entirely (which is the default setting), or you can
turn it on to beep on lines with problems, announce the number of
problems, or actually tell you the problems.
For instance, it can say "font change at column ___" or "run of spaces
at column ____" or "quote mismatch" and so on.
The run of spaces is very useful for identifying places where there are
too many spaces; however, if you are in the habit of placing (or are
required to
place) two spaces after a period, text analyzer isn't smart enough to
have that feature turned on and off.
Also, when searching for revisions in a document, the "next" feature is
pretty slick, though not on the tool bar.
I have created my own hotkey in Word so that alt plus shift plus R jumps
to the next revision and alt plus shift plus shift plus P jumps back to
the previous revision.
It works better than the revisions tracking feature in JAWS.
If you are looking for track changes in a document another technique is
to turn on those quick keys with insert plus z.
Then, you can jump from revision to revision simply with a press of the
letter "r".

Does JAWS have the ability to read the spaces in a Word document?

I am proof reading a long document, and sometimes I will hit the space

twice, so I want to fix this in the document.

If you are doing serious proof-reading, text analyzer can be pretty useful,
particularly if you typically do not add two spaces at the end of sentences.
You can find out about text analyzer by pressing Insert and the number 6 on
the top row of keys on your keyboard.
That will put you in a search box. Type in the word "text" and hit return.
You will get a list. Actually, you could have typed in "Text Analyzer" to
go straight to Text Analyzer, but I thought seeing all the text processing
options might be useful for someone who is jumping from JAWS 8 to 13.
When you get to Text Analyzer, press right arrow to open up the options. It
can be turned off entirely (which is the default setting), or you can turn
it on to beep on lines with problems, announce the number of problems, or
actually tell you the problems.
For instance, it can say "font change at column ___" or "run of spaces at
column ____" or "quote mismatch" and so on.
The run of spaces is very useful for identifying places where there are too
many spaces; however, if you are in the habit of placing (or are required to
place) two spaces after a period, text analyzer isn't smart enough to have
that feature turned on and off.
Also, when searching for revisions in a document, the "next" feature is
pretty slick, though not on the tool bar.
I have created my own hotkey in Word so that alt plus shift plus R jumps to
the next revision and alt plus shift plus shift plus P jumps back to the
previous revision.
It works better than the revisions tracking feature in JAWS.
If you are looking for track changes in a document another technique is to
turn on those quick keys with insert plus z.
Then, you can jump from revision to revision simply with a press of the
letter "r".

Hi JAWS Users
Does JAWS have the ability to read the spaces in a Word document?
I am using W7 and Word 2007.
I am proof reading a long document, and sometimes I will hit the space bar
twice, so I want to fix this in the document.
John

Re: Reading spaces in a Word Doc

Hi Dave
I thought about that, but I want two spaces between asentances. I did think
about doing as you say, and then coming back and looking for a period and
one space and replace it with a period and two spaces. But that would leave
two spaces after each paragraph, and that would not hurt anything.

John,

Rather than trying to find those double spaces manually, just do this:

Ctrl+H for search and replace
2. Type two spaces in the find field.
3. Tab and type a single space in the replace field.
4. Alt+a to find and replace all.
5. Press Enter on okay when it's done, and press Alt+A again to find any
more (you might have some triple-spaces or more that need trimming.
6. Repeat until zero occurrences are found.
7. Escape out of the dialog.

Re: Some Questions on new OCR component of Jaws 13

Soronel Haetir
 

To use the convenient OCR, you do need to use commands.

First maximize your adobe window, preferably in single page mode.

Next trigger the OCR by typing jaws+space, o, w

You can then use the up and down arrow keys, page up and page down
keys. Most other navigation does not work (move by word for example).

To OCR the next page you have to manually move adobe to that page and
re-issue the ocr commands, it works on a screen basis not a document
basis.

Thanks very much!
