Hi Tom,
 
I use the Windows Fax and Scan with our Brother all in one laser over Openbook and my flatbed scanners, and I have both a Canon LIDE 220  and a Epson Perfection V39, whenever I can.  The Brother just seems to take a better picture, better software, probably.  From a visual point of view my wife, who's sighted verses me being totally blind likes the Brother results better.  Of course I'm talking about scanning with the Canon or Epson flatbeds with Openbook verses taking a picture with the Brother.
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "Close Enough!"

Thanks to all those who answered my query regarding making an electronic
copy of a completed printed one page document.


The pdf document would not let me load it into Word 2013 but accessing
the document was not the problem. It was making an electronic copy so it
could be attached to an email when finished.



I have an Epson flatbed scanner and will try out Mike's suggestion
regarding the Windows Fax and scan program as soon as the form is filled
out.


Cheers

I find Citibank’s Citi Mobile app to be accessible and I’m able to download transaction files from their website in CSV format without issue.

HI everyone,

 

I have been with Simple Bank, simple.com for the last few years and I just loved their accessibility.  They just got bought out by BBVA USA and their accessibility has gone down the drain hugely.

 

What online banks do you guys recommend that are accessible? And also have good service, and are just good banks?

 

Any advice is appreciated.

 

Best,

 

Juan

I bank with US bank and when I'm at the ATM, it says
enter your PIN or tap your phone
Do they have an app that does the same as entering your PIN?

If you have a smart phone, Capital One, Bank of America, and US Bank have apps that are fully accessible.
Capital One is geared for online banking; though they do have a few locations where you can meet with someone; but their focus is to be available mostly online.

I have an account with Bank Of America and find it pretty accessible. However, I have a friend who also banks with them, and he prefers to use the mobile site instead of the regular site, and he says this is so much easier than the regular site. You might try this bank. Also, I’ve had an account with Frist United Bank for several years, and there were times when they changed their site where it wasn’t so accessible, but the current site is good. You might try them as well.

I bank with Wells Fargo, USBank and CapitalOne.

I don’t have any problems with any of the three be it with their websites or iPhone apps. Indeed, the CapitalOne 360 checking account I most recently opened and set up I did entirely on my iPhone.

I hear Ally bank is also good.

You can use Windows Fax and Scan to take a picture of the file then this file can be attached to an email.  Below are steps for using Windows Fax and Scan. 
After the scan is completed a folder called, Scanned Documents, is created in your Documents and this is where the scan will be.  I use the flatbed scanner
of our printer for this, so I don't know what other scanners will be in the scanner list when you select the File menu / New / Scan.  I'm sure it'll be
whatever scanners you have connected to your computer.  If you want to read the .JPEG file just copy and paste a copy into your Jaws 2021, My Pictures
/ Picture Smart folder and Jaws 2021 will scan the file, when it finishes press enter on the get more link at the bottom to insure you get everything. 
Then copy all the text and put it into a text file for your reference.
 
Go to All Programs in the Start Menu and find Windows Fax & Scan
Press the, Alt key, arrow to, New, and press enter to open a submenu.
Arrow to, Scan, and press enter to open a scan dialogue.
 
Now there should be the scanner showing here so, tab to, Okay and press the spacebar.
Note: if more than 1 scanner is there you'll have to choose 1.  I would use your printers scanner if this is one of your choices.
 
Now press the spacebar on the Scan button.
 
 
 
 
 
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.

Hi,


Hoping someone can assist me with my problem.


I have been sent a three page .pdf file which contains one page of
questions which require me to answer, sign and email back to the sender.


A sighted person can fill out the now printed page for me but my
question is how to convert the completed form into an electronic copy
which can be attached to an email?



I can gain access to a copy of Kurzweil 1000 v14 but thephoto copier
utility seems to only allow the copy to be printed rather than being

Is there anyway Kurzweil, Windows 10 or Jaws 2021 can be used to create

There are browser extensions to read Epub for both Chromium-based and Firefox browsers. I’m not too crazy about the ones I’ve tried, but they do mostly work. There’s also something like Qread, which can handle the format. I think there is an add-on for MS Word as well.

Thorium Reader is the best tool that I've found for reading EPUB documents.

Also remember that all versions of Microsoft Word from 2013 and onward can open PDF files, converting them to MS-Word format in the process of doing so.

There are occasional small differences in formatting, but the tend to be trivial in most cases.

If the varilus suggestions aren't feasible for you, couldn't you use control C and then control V to copy the text into a Word file to be attached to your email?

Tom,
I was thinking of the Voice Dream Scanner app in particular.
You can scan a page, and add the rest of the pages, and then export it as a PDF.
I have done this with forms for the State Library for the Blind.
Since this is a Jaws list, if you want more help with this, write me off list. Richardturner42@outlook.com

I believe one could use Abbyy Finereader to do this. it can retain the image data but also save a text layer in pdf or in any other format you choose, pretty much.

Using a smartphone seems like an extra and unnecessary step, to me -- but there are direct camera-to-pdf apps available for Android, at least (probably for Apple devices, too).

Tom,

On the presumption that you have either a flatbed scanner or multifunction with a scanner, virtually all of them can scan to PDF for sending.

I have often printed a copy of a form that could not be filled out in PDF (which is a shame, because PDF supports fillable forms - and more need to generate those), filled it out, then scanned that back in as a PDF to return.

All the Canon multi-functions have supported this for years, and I recall the most recent HP multi-function I used about 5 years back did, too.
