Re: Reading Charts

Stephen Costigan

Hi Gene,

Thank you for the response.

I am sending the reports from my mobile to my laptop and wanted to see if there was a way for my laptop to read them out to me because at the moment I have my wife reading the data from the charts to me.

Not to worry, thank you.

No screen-reader can read images.  There is no written text to read.  Maybe you could use OCR to make the charts readable for a screen-reader but if accuracy matters, I have no idea how accurately the numbers would be rendered and you would have to check numbers that look wrong or not routine. 
But I don't understand the question.  You said you want to send the charts.  Aren't you sending them to a sighted person?  Why does it matter if NVDA can read them?

My apologies I should have mentioned that the charts are sent as images.
