Quentin, thank you so very much. I learn so much from this list.
I had no idea that OCR was available with Windows 10 as I only
learn as I go. I will definitely be trying this out the next time
I receive an image PDF file via an email.
Again, thank you so much.

If you are using the add-on (because you are using
Windows 7 or 8) then you use object navigation, if you are using
the inbuilt OCR (as covered in the user guide) then once you
have recognised the text, you can use your regular navigation
and reading keys.
Basically, navigate to the object in question - a graphic
on a webpage, or open a PDF which is inaccessible, etc. Next
press NVDA+R (the NVDA key is either INSERT or CAPS LOCK
depending on your settings) then use your regular reading and
navigation keys to read the result (eg arrows or NVDA+down
arrow / NVDA+A to read all). When done, press ESCAPE.

Then how to move by object navigation? N is
this add on not up to date?
from nvda user guide:
9. Content Recognition
When authors don't provide sufficient information for a
user to determine the content of something, various tools
can be used
to attempt to recognize the content from an image. NVDA
optical character recognition (OCR) functionality built
10 to recognize text from images. Additional content
be provided in NVDA add-ons.
When you use a content recognition command, NVDA
from the current navigator object. By default, the
follows the system focus or browse mode cursor, so you can
just move the focus or browse mode cursor where desired.
if you move the browse mode cursor to a graphic,
recognize content from the graphic by default. However,
you may wish
to use object navigation directly to, for example,
content of an entire application window.
Once recognition is complete, the result will be presented
document similar to browse mode, allowing you to read the
with cursor keys, etc. Pressing enter or space will
click) the text at the cursor if possible. Pressing escape
the recognition result.
9.1. Windows 10 OCR
Windows 10 includes OCR for many languages. NVDA can use
recognize text from images or inaccessible applications.
You can set the language to use for text recognition in
the Windows 10
OCR settings dialog. Additional languages can be installed
the Start menu, choosing Settings, selecting Time &
Language -> Region
& Language and then choosing Add a language.
To recognize the text in the current navigator object
using Windows 10
OCR, press NVDA+r.
