Yes, you can recognize documents in Amhariclanguage.
The instructions are:
* Authors: Rui Fontes <email@example.com> and Ângelo Abrantes
This add-on uses the Tesseract OCR engine, packaged by NAPS2, both open
source and free, to perform optical character recognition to an image
document, whether PDF, JPG, TIF or other, without having to open the
It also can uses a scanner as origin of the material to be recognized.
In the NVDA menu, Preferences, a section NAPS2TesseractOCR is added, where
you can configure the language to be used for recognition.

## Supported image types
This add-on supports the following file types:
The command to start the character recognition process is:
Shift + NVDA + r for documents on your PC
Control + Shift + NVDA + r to recognize documents through scanning.
Then just wait for the 1.pdf file to open.
If you want to preserve the recognized text, be sure to save the document
under another name and in another location, as all files in the temporary
folder are deleted at the end of the process!
## Known issues
* This version only works on Windows 10 64-bit systems.
* If a folder does not have, at the beginning of the full path, the
reference to the drive letter, as, for example, in Windows 10 with the
Documents, Downloads, etc. folders, the add-on cannot determine the full
path of the file, and so you will not be able to perform optical character

the name of the folder until NVDA announces what we want ...
You can grab it at:
Sorry, it is not yet perfect, but it works and it is free!
Please, do not discuss it with any other person by now...

Hi lovely guys
I always try to have nvda recognize image or scanned documents with
insert+r. I don't get any result though. but, in jaws, when I press
insert + space, o, c, I hear a kind of bip sound to let me know that
the recognition is in process. it also lets me know when it finishes
recognizing the document. I don't get the same in nvda although I
press insert +r. it is dead silence. does this nvda OCR recognition
