Landscape vs Portrate of a PDF

Shannon
 

Hi again

 

When it comes to a scanned pdf is there a way to tell if the image is turned sideways?

I have a guy telling me that my document looks totally different than his.

I printed it signed it, and had someone  scan it for me

When I sent it back, . apparently it is sideways and when he prints it is cutting it off.

Is there a way to tell if it is sideways? When I read with the OCR of Jaws it read out just fine. I guess the OCR will turn it right side up when recognizing?

Thanks

Shannon

Hello All,

Some of my email recipients only receive the subject line, and none of the body. This is only particular recipients, and sometimes they do receive the message body. Any suggestions please?

Many thanks,

Hi all,

0I know that I can alt tab from the top of the message into the attachments field but when there are multiple attachments to a message.  Jaws 18 and Jaws 2018 are having problem s arrowing to the other items in the list.

What is the trick?

Insert A does  not get me into the attachments list as the help says it will.

So what do I do?

 

Thanks

I just use cut and paste in the message area to add attachments.

 

To read attachments use Alt-F and tabe to save attachments.  You can save them one at a time or all at once.

Hi, Shannon. I use Windows 10 with JAWS 2018. I am having no trouble reading multiple attachments with Outlook 2010. I do the following.

 

1. Open Outlook2010.

2. Shift TAB to the attachments list.

3. Use Right and Left Arrows to advance or go backward through the attachments list.

4. Press ALT + F, followed by M to save attachments.

5. Follow the prompts to save. Then press the OK dialog.

This should save all attachments in the message.

Hello, everyone.

 

Yesterday, you may recall that I was told by Freedom Scientific Tech Support that the best way to solve the issue of Outlook Crashing when entering addresses into the “to” field of a new e-mail message was to put Outlook in safe mode.

 

This is continuing to work for me, although I must add that if you shut your computer down for any reason, you will have to go back into Outlook and put it back into safe mode once you have re-booted.

 

Apparently, the safe mode setting isn’t saved, as I have just discovered.

OK, it took a few tries, but someone at VFO told me how to do this.
For anyone else who may need to know, routing jaws to the PC cursor
will display the line number both in speech and on the Braille
display.

I asked this question a few months ago, but I'm trying again in a more

I have jaws 18, Windows 7, and Word 2010.

I work in a field that frequently requires documents to have
continuous line numbering turned on in word. Staff will often
communicate ideas about shared documents by referencing particular
line numbers in the document. I can use insert+delete to tell me the
line number of the **page**, but I cannot figure out how to get jaws
to tell me the number of the line with respect to the entire document.
Note, I know that I can use the "go to" function to go to a particular

I also have a Braille display. I have status cells turned off, and I
have tried playing with turning them on to see if that would give me
the information, but that doesn't seem to be working. Any assistance
is greatly appreciated.

Re: Most effective OCR route

Kelly Pierce
 

Dear Rahul,

I have the current version of k1000. I used to have Open Book and
then the company that owned it stopped upgrading the OCR engines. I
had scanned a book with extensive footnotes and none of the footnote
numbers appeared in the text. With the current versions of FineReader
and OmniPage found in k1000, the footnotes are scanned and recognized
without any problem. The only way to know the answer to your question
is to run sample documents through the OCR conversion and see the
results for yourself. Feel free to send me a sample file at my private
e-mail address at KKellyP@Gmail.com to run it through the OCR
conversion and I will e-mail it back to you.

Re: Most effective OCR route

I use Open Book and it works pretty well. Only issue is that FS hasn't updated it for years so the latest OCR engines are not being used. Jaws 2018 has a built in OCR function that I haven't used much to know if it works well or not.


Re: Most effective OCR route

Pablo Morales
 

I work a lot with OCRs, and the best for me is Kurzweil. This software offers several features more than OCR, so it is more powerful than fine reader.
However it is my personal opinion, as well the rest of answers that you are going to receive are opinions of users with different technologies, different needs, and different type of documents to be scanned.

Re: Most effective OCR route

 

Rahul,

          If you do not require the final result be in MS-Word format I at least have a suggestion.

          There is a company called Tracker Software that has a legacy product, still downloadable, called PDF-XChange Viewer.  It is the first program on their Discontinued Downloads Page (and by discontinued they mean they're no longer actively developing it, but it's there for download).

           I have found the OCR capability of PDF-XChange Viewer to be very, very good and it includes English, Spanish, German, and (I think) French, as part of the basic install package.   It is available at no cost.    It is also not accessible on the whole, but the OCR function can be easily accessed with a screen reader of your choice.  I wrote up step-by-step instructions for using the OCR function of this software on image PDFs or even previously OCR-ed PDFs where the OCR isn't great.  Here is a cut and paste of those instructions:
------------------

Using PDF XChange Viewer to perform OCR on any PDF you receive that is an image PDF, step-by-step:

1.     Open PDF XChange Viewer from your start menu.

2.     Hit ALT+F,O to bring up the file open browsing dialog.

3.     Hit ALT+I to jump directly to the Look In combo box

4.     Hit down arrow to get into the area that’s somewhat, but not exactly, like the tree view in Windows Explorer.

5.     Hit L until you hear, “Libraries,” announced.

6.     Hit TAB two times, you should hear, “Documents”.

7.     Hit SPACEBAR to select the Documents library.

8.     Hit ENTER to open the documents library.

9.     Hit the first character of the folder or file name you’re trying to perform OCR on. Keep doing this with the first character until you hear its name announced.

10.                        Hit Enter to open the file or folder.  If you’re dealing with a file at this step go straight to step 11.  Otherwise, do the following

a.     If you know the file is in this folder then use the “hit the first character” technique to locate it and jump to step 11 once you have.

b.     If you need to drill down another folder level go back to step 9.

11.                        Hit ALT+O to open the file in PDF XChange Viewer.

12.                        Hit CTRL+SHIFT+C to open the OCR dialog box.  Immediately hit ENTER to initiate the OCR processing.  The length of time this takes depends on the size of the file being processed.  JAWS does not read the processing status box, but will announce the file’s name with star after it when the processing completes.  That’s how you’ll know it’s done.

13.                        Hit ALT+F,S to save the file and its OCR text into the original file itself.

14.                        Hit ALT+F4 to close PDF XChange Viewer.

------------------
  
The resulting file should be read in Adobe Reader or whichever PDF reader software you prefer that you know to be accessible.

It is possible to change the accuracy level during the OCR process with a dropdown box, but I find their default of "Medium" works best.
