I just hit the Start Scan on the Epson Printer, and
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
choose to scan to PDF.
It creates a PDF file, but the text is not yet readable
I think I need an OCR program, but Adobe Reader doesn't
have any option like that unless you click CONVERT
and pay for it, I think.
I have some PDF files that NVDA can read without any problems,
but maybe they've been OCR'ed already.

Depends on what version of software you use to scan it.
You cant use acrobat reader to ocr it,
But if you get a standard version of acrobat it should do the ocr on it.
Let me know if you need anything else.

Subject: [nvda] Scanning and Reading PDF files
If I scanned a book or magazine page into a PDF file
using a basic scanner, do I need a professional OCR
program to extract the text?
NVDA does seem to have its own decoding system for
PDF files, but I think it depends how the document
was scanned or prepared.
Does anyone know?
