OCR Programs


Dan Kerstetter <dhk55@...>
 

I've just purchased a scanner and am looking for a good OCR program that
works well with JAWS? It's been a while since I've had a scanner and I'm
curious as to what people are using these days.



Thanks.



Dan

I use Abby Finereader. I scan the documents into word documents. It works pretty good for me.

Before JAWS 16 came out, I used OpenBook and DocuScan Plus. Although both
programs worked well for me, I preferred the latter because text recognition
was slightly more accurate. Now, however, I use Convenient OCR in JAWS 16,
and I love it. Many people also like Kursweil 1000.

Can the convenient OCR feature be used with a scanner?

Hi Listers,

Re. Abby Fine Reader: I had this program installed on my laptop, although I
never used it. I think it came originally a few years ago from Freedom
Scientific. When I tried to install MS Office 365 on the laptop, it
installed apparently OK, but none of the programs would run. I talked with
an accessibility tech at Microsoft, and, although she seemed rather clueless
and unhelpful at times, she told me that there was a known incompatibility
between Abby and Office 365. After I uninstalled Abby and reinstalled
Office 365, all its components ran well.

I hope that this will help some one.

All the best,

Ian

Well you can scan to a photo format and then OCR the photo!
But will probably not be very good!
If you have office you can scan and OCR, you can find that.

Hi,
I have ABBYY Finereader pro and I cann to do all operations (scaning and recognition) in this application. After recognition I save the text as txt or doc or docx file. So the compatibility with Office is not needet. Results of recognition are excellent. Jaws works with Finereader very good.
