Nothing to do with USB. Scanning in a photograph will create a graphical image with no JAWS interpretation. It's not like the Facebook ability to recognize images -- now that is amazing technology that can only be possible with billions of identified images in the cloud to use as a resource. Forget using it with JAWS on a computer.

Does anyone know if coloured pictures can be scanned into a computer?  If so, how isJAWS with reading it?   


Re: off topic possibly

 

Your main issue would likely not be in the scanning, but either in the cropping of the photos afterward or the setup of the scanner to scan only a field that's the size of the photo itself.  Most will scan presuming an 8.5 by 11 inch item on the platen.

I have very little doubt that JAWS would work perfectly well to allow you to scan the photos, provided you know where on the platen they have to be placed (typically with a corner in the upper right of the platen if you're facing it as though it were a letter sized sheet of paper and the scanner bar is at the end away from you).

If the intention is to send them to someone for inclusion in something, if they're sighted, they can almost certainly crop as necessary in a matter of moments.

I would imagine that JAWS could be used with scanner software just like it can for any other software as far as scanning color photos for saving on the computer.

I know of no "picture recognition" utility part of JAWS, but one can use several different web-based ones (though I find their actual identifications to be relatively inconsistent in many cases).

But if these are pictures taken with a camera, and not hard copies of same, they are almost certain to be stored on a memory card that can be popped into a card reader for transferring the files over to the computer.   I do this quite frequently to get rid "of the middleman" that is the camera and using Windows Explorer to snag the specific set of images I want to either copy or cut and paste on to my computer.

Actually it works quite well on Windows 10 V1607 using Jaws 18 and accessing ATT email addresses. I have had no issues in the nearly 48 hours I've been using it. In fact this entire series of emails has been sent and received using it.

It looks just like I remember it on XP and I have no problems what so ever with it and Jaws.

Carol, the versions that are there are beta programs which means they
most likely have problems. and last I heard is that the version that you
can get by paying a nominal fee doesn't work well enough to be used with
a screen reader. since Microsoft doesn't support Outlook Express any
more, it's likely that it'll be very difficult to find any assistance. I
wouldn't bother with it.

Firefox help needed

Dennis L <dennisl1982@...>
 

Hi, how do I prevent Jaws or any screen reader from  saying something like m.yahoo when I start to type an address into the address bar?  I also want to prevent it from showing a list of possible sites that it could be in a list as I type.  I would love to get rid of all search engines but I don’t see how this is possible I looked under search.  I’m using latest Firefox  any help is appreciated.

Tom, I have the same version. yep, either will do. but I find that
control+p opens the settings to the last category that was used and
control+k opens the settings to the default category, which for me, it's
the visualizations category. I also noticed if I want to see the actual
extensions, from the file types tab, I can shift+tab once to find their
listing. funny, in XP this list was just before the all button. oh well,
