links question j17-j18

Steve
 

With JAWS 17, I go to a page that has titles on 1 line and the associated link on the next line, to click on.
With JAWS 18 both items are on the same line, so I can't click on the link.
I have switched back and forth from both versions to be sure I am right.
What can I change in 18 to be the same as 17?
Thank you,

My advice is, “DON’T TRY!”  Freedom Scientific screwed up the settings files so badly that it will take way less time just to start over.

In JAWS 18 there is a replacement for the old “merge” utility.  It is billed as a “new feature,” but that’s a fraud.  It is really a bug fix.  The old merge utility never worked all that well.

Gudrun,

The likelihood of any OCR processor being able to recognize hand-written script is very, very small. This is all the more so if/when fading, water staining, margin notes, above-line insertions, strike-throughs, and the like are involved. All of the previously mentioned items are incredibly common in old hand-written manuscripts.

I can't imagine that a personal diary would be written in a hand that's nearly consistent enough for OCR to recognize. Since we're talking about Old German here I doubt that there are many general-purpose OCR engines that would work with that language, even if it's in actual print format. I do not recall Tracker Software having any Old German OCR engine.

           If you'd like off-list assistance with regard to this, please feel free to contact me off-list.  I'm a bit muddled on what, precisely, needs to be OCR processed and what it looks like in its current PDF forms.

           When you're getting into even perfectly transcribed documents is a semi-dead dialect things get really thorny when it comes to OCR, though some engines will certainly do better than others.

Re: Finding the JAWS line

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi Poppa Bear,
 
Here's a note I found that should help:
From: gs
The simplest way is to just press J. The default line number which is already entered is the current line number. Depending on the environment/version of JAWS, this does not get announced when J is pressed so you might never know it was there unless you investigated it.  After pressing the letter, J, use the say line keystroke to hear Jaws report the current number, now press, Control + C, to copy the page number to the clipboard for future reference during the same webpage session.
GS
Take care.

Re: pdf old German

Hi Brian: Yes, I realize that No OCR software can deal with handwriting.
There is the original handwritten diary, which this lady wishes to have
translated and which a group of volunteers have transcribed, transferring
any orthographic irregularities, or word splits, intact from the original to
the transcript. There is also an originally handwritten, subsequently
translated into English by same group of volunteers, article that is to
serve as reference. I have the original article as an image-based pdf, and
that is what I tried to scan, hoping to find some clues as to the meaning of
some of the dialect (Hessisch), in that reference, and that is where I tried
to apply the Old German after getting total hodgepodge as a result of
selecting just German.

That's my reason to ask whether the document would survive better if I used
Exchange Viewer. I was probably too brain fogged after all my attempts to be
fully coherent when I wrote my previous message.

Hey, all ye titans of the interfaces! I need your help here: A woman called
me today. She is not your typical project manager from a translation
company. She is a woman fired up by intense passion. In her possession is an
old diary from the 17th century. She has a grandfather, 7 times removed who
was the mayor of a very large region of Germany. In addition to that, he was
a stone setter, a healer, and benefactor of the people under his domain. She
has his diary, and she wants it translated from German into English. A
friend we both have in common had recommended me to her.



The diary is in old German. Kurzweil 1,000 actually has an old German
setting under its recognition, language. Unfortunately, when I applied that
to my settings and opened the document, I got an error message indicating
that the program, Kurzweil, had encountered a problem and was not
responding. Windows was trying to find a solution (yeah). I tried to hit
debug, but got essentially the same message. Now, just so you know, I can
use Kurzweil with other languages, and it opens the document just fine.



Would PdF Exchange Viewer be able to deal with this?



Any help greatly appreciated.
