Re: Important advisory for today's next snapshot: if using Windows 10, disable OCR add-on


 

Hi,

This does not apply to anyone NOT using next snapshots (NVDA menu/Help/About).

In short, this feature will allow NVDA to recognize screen text and present the result in a document window.

Cheers,

Joseph

Hi joseph

 

I use windows creator but I am so sorry to say that I don’t know anything about this feature you are mentioning,

 

Can you please explain to me what I should do in my case with OCR?

 

Thanks in advance

 

Anthony

Hi everyone,

 

The following advisory from the add-ons community is for people using NVDA next snapshots on Windows 10:

 

Due to UWP OCR feature introduced in today’s next snapshot, please disable OCR add-on if you are on Windows 10 and using next snapshots. This is because NVDA+R is now a native NVDA command to recognize text on screen using a chosen OCR engine.

 

Cheers,

Joseph
