Re: Windows OCR and debug logging.


Sometimes it helps to use object navigation to ensure that it's
recognizing the correct graphics.

Does Windows OCR show up in debug logging? I ask because I'm still
encountering the situation where it pretty much does nothing. So I
restarted with --disable-addons and --debug-logging to see if I could
find out what it's doing. I opened Komplete Kontrol, because I knew it
had a dialogue that opened, and hit NVDA-r to recognize said dialogue.
Debug logging recorded the input gesture just fine, but the next two
things it logged were NVDA speaking "recognizing" and "result". I was
really surprised that there was no mention whatsoever of any sort of OCR

Alternatively, if anybody has an example of a place where OCR should
absolutely work, I'd be happy to test it. It's really weird that it
doesn't seem to recognize anything. It worked briefly when I posted
about this a while back in an earlier version when I restarted without
addons, and then it worked with addons, but then it just sort of stopped
giving me useful results, and this has continued into 2019.3.1, Windows
1909. Everything I recognize just reads "blank", there's pretty much
nothing there. I don't use OCR a lot, but I did actually use it to
update firmware from Komplete Kontrol once, and since that's the
dialogue that's come up, it would be nice to have it working again.
