moderated Jaws 2021 and OCR component not install


James Lockwood
 

Yes it did work at least it did last week. For some reason however after I installed Kurz well now I’m back to OCR component not installed. I have subsequently removed all the programs jaws open book, and Kurzwell and just installed jaws and it’s still saying component not installed. By the way, calling Freedom Scientific is a waste of time. Last week their suggestion was to run Windows update. This week they tell me adobe DC professional PDF reader will cause an error and that you have to use the free Adobe reader. So I uninstalled professional DC and installed the free Adobe reader, still same error. And I know that DC professional works withAnd I know that DC professional works with it because it did and still does on my prior windows machine. And despite the fact that jaws, downloads or at least it’s supposed to, the OCR component from one of their servers, there’s no way they can get you a link to download just that item. This is entirely unacceptable. The customer service is a farce. I think they flip a coin or pull a number out of a hat to determine what to tell you to do next so you get off the phone.

Yes. My computer was online. I have Jaws 2020 2021 and 2022. I use the offline file, and the online smaller file. When I write and click and do OCR with jaws it simply says component is not installed. I’ve even turned off all the security through windows firewall etc. Still, component not installed. I also tried repair. On all three. No difference

With JAWS 2022, the OCR component was installed when I invoked an OCR
function. But, of course, I understand you to be using JAWS 2021. Can you
run a repair while ensuring your computer is online?

Subject: Jaws 2021 and OCR component not install

I recently built a new computer. I have windows 10 professional. I installed
open book 9, the latest version. I then installed Jaws 2021 from the
off-line 1.3 GB installation file. But, the OCR component is not installed.
that is what I keep getting told whenever I try to OCR a PDF. I called
Support and all they told me was make sure windows is up-to-date. That is
pretty infuriating. I have sent try to remove jars, completely along with
all shared components and then reinstalled it. No different. I have
installed all my previous versions of jaws, 2018, 2019, 2020 while also
having 2021 on the computer, still, OCR component not installed. Any help
much appreciated

Was wondering if anyone has knowledge if Spark Instant Messenger is compatible with JAWS 2018?

Thanks

Hi, James. I think the problem is due to the fact that JAWS must be
installed first, followed by OpenBook, not the other way round.
