Re: Outlook Express Question

Dave...
 

Mark,

What version of Outlook Express? I had to use an add-on spell checker with
my OE version 6 when I got XP Pro a few years ago, as it was checking in
French.

If this happened to a system that was working perfectly fine yesterday, then
Tools/options/Spell Checker and you should find the appropriate controls
there somewhere.

Otherwise, here's the name of the program that I installed:

spelloe_setup.exe

Try Googling it.

List,

All of a sudden my spell check in Outlook Express is in Spanish. I cannot
seem to figure out how to fix this problem. I should state that I am using
the latest version of JAWS 12 on an old XP machine.

Thanks in advance,
Mark

Re: jaws13

Bissett, Tom <tom.bissett@...>
 

I am curious on how well the OCR works. In my previous job I had to use OCR to try to get information out of screenshots and it was poor at best. If someone was kind enough to alt print screen the OCR results were much better because there so much less clutter in the shot but most people use the printscreen button which gave you the desktop and everything where the alt print screen you only get he application windows so less clutter and better results. From this observation I would think the OCR results would be dependent on the quality of the graphic.

Regards
Tom Bisset

Okay, so not as promising as it might be. Would be nice if it would allow
you to quickly label the graphic just identified so as to cover key features
of a given web page in a short time. Wonder if they thought of that?

It wouldn't be any more realtime than, say, running Open Book, if what I've
heard is any indication. You still need to activate it on a case by case
basis. And it's got probably less to recognize than Open Book would, which
should, in theory, mean less system resources used. Of course it's equally
possible I just have no clue.

Gerald,

That would be one of the first of a significant step in the direction of
accessibility that FS has done in a long time. I sure hope your surmise is
correct.

I just hope that the horsepower of today's processors and memory is able to
cope with the strain of doing "on-the-fly" OCR in real time.

I read about the new OCR feature in JAWS 13 that will supposedly convert

If so, it would really be a significant improvement. Any thoughts?

Re: Internet explorer 9

If you route the JAWS cursor to the Virtual Cursor in IE9, can you read the text on the web page? I have heard that Microsoft is using a different display method in IE9 that causes problems for screen readers reading the page with the mouse cursor. I have avoided upgrading so far.

It would be great if the OCR in JFW 13 could read CAPTCHAS, but since the graphical text displayed in them is somewhat distorted to defeat OCR programs, I doubt there will be any success. Worth a try though!
