If I understand it correctly Jaws is using the Windows 10 function and not Open Book.

Ow'w'w, Gawod! Gr'roass! Don't tell me I have to have Openbook installed for the OCR in JFW to work! I happen to, so woohoo me, but for those who don't, that could really pose a major major problem!

They are joining Jaws and Openbook...
That is a OCR application feature and not a screen reader feature.

To have that in NVDA we will need a virtual printer to send the resultant
image to the Windows 10 OCR engine, and hoping that the engine allows
multipage images...

With the OCR function in Jaws 2018 beta you find the file you want to
OCR in file explorer then open the context menu for the file and then
arrow down to recoginize with Jaws and hit enter. You then have a view
that you can read and or copy.
