importing PDF's to word.

Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)

May I add a little tidbit I discovered a few days ago. I was reading a converted manual, and it was balking a little, a problem I've encountered once or twice before. In examining Word's View dropdown,, I found a choice on the left side labeled Reading Mode. I entered on that, and performance smoothed out radically. I don't know if that's a read-only mode, but moving in and out of this mode should present no problem, should edits or changes prove necessary.

Actually, Jim, I gave the correct instruction from memory. Convenient OCR has extended the options to include d for document. I used it today on a whole PDF file.

Press JAWS Key+spacebar, and then press "w" to "OCR" a "window", or "s" to OCR the "screen". You will then be using the JAWS cursor to navigate.

Once you determine that the information in the document is worth saving, press the PC Key, to get back to the PC cursor; then press control+a, to select all. You can then copy what you've selected and paste it into a blank Word documentm which you can save/print/etc.

If this does not work, the suggestion, re:

should do the trick.

Have fun.

Look into convenient OCR. If I recall the keystrokes correctly, while focus is on the document, press JAWS key+spacebar, then o, then d for document.
This works best, and perhaps only, in JAWS 16. Check the "What's new" file in JAWS 16 help.

When opening pdf documents often times the pdf reads empty document. I know that the document is there but not OCR formatted because can import into open book to read it however I would like to select the entire pdf from the pdf document and drop it into word rather than opening open book to do this.
Open book only allows me to select one page at a time and it doesn't keep the same format as the pdf.

Any tips how to take non OCR pdf docs and get them into a word doc. in as few steps as possible?
