Re: ocr solutions


I do wander if you can access windows ocr natively.

There are free and payed for ocr packages but there are also universal apps and I may try to see if some of those work to.

Actually I can already use OCR with nvda, but you can only scan one screen at a time. Hit nvda control R I think is the key stroke. It will then vertualise the window and you can sometimes click on things on the screen, but if it is a pdf I don't actually know how that would work.

There is but it only runs on windows 7 which is going to be discontinued in 48 hours (two days). OCR in NVDA is built in on windows 10. If you try to do insert R desktop or caps lock R laptop and your laptop or desktop runs windows 7 it will say, Windows 10 OCR not available.

Isn't there an ocr addon for nvda?

Hmph, another reason to maybe not use jaws, to be honest, if nvda could
have some scanner addon which could use finereader engine and others I'd
probably buy it, I mean I'd like a standalone program to but still.

It seems the best way forward is mainstream software then.

I'd like to know if those that use omnipage especially the later
versions and the ultimate version especially find it better than abbyy
or whatever.

I have a user staying on abyy 12 because its accessible, however, it
means I am using older software which will probably go out of date.

There was a time 3 or so years back when the network relied on dragon
naturally speaking and an offer/add came up from nuance about omnipage
and a rediculous offer on ultimate but I never took that.

Open book hasn't been updated for years and I don't think that FS is
planning on updating it any time soon.
