Oh! I have to open the image up first? What program is best to open images up in for OCR to work best on it? Do I just select Paint or Photos or something else?

Hi Kenny,

when the image is in focus, press NVDA+R.

You can then navigate the result with your arrow keys.

Does NVDA 2018.1.1 have an option or add-on available that would OCR a .jpg, .png or .gif file and display the results in a window I can browse/read using the arrow keys?


A lot of webmasters are starting to place help text in images, instead of placing it directly on the web page. I need a way of reading this text.


If NVDA doesn't provide any way of doing this, does Windows Narrator?
