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

Hi all,
I'll say amen to that about NVDA being the best screen reader. For a start, it allows you to use the mouse and trackpad, something, Jaws does not and never has. It also seems to work with more programs than jaws, [I may get my head jumped on for that one], but it has been my experience.

whith implementing this feature, jaws has no any supremacy and advantage over nvda!

Hi,
Not sure on specifics, but quite likely. One difference is that it
isn't an online-based thing.
Cheers,
Joseph

Hi,
If things go as planned, yes. This might be the final big feature in
2017.3 provided that this feature makes the cut.
Cheers,
Joseph

hi joseph.
thanks so much for your great news.
do you mean that ocr addon became part of nvda and nvda now
recognizes the text in the images?
thanks again and God bless you.

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
