Re: A more intelligent NVDA OCR?


Quentin Christensen
 

It should work with image PDF files.  A couple of things to bear in mind:
- It will recognise printed or typed text, but not so much handwritten text (a limitation of basically every OCR).
- It works, as Rob noted, with what is currently visible on screen.  If you are zoomed in such that only 1/10th of the page is visible, that's all it will be able to run OCR on.  If, however, you zoom out so you can fit 100 pages on screen, that won't work either, as the text will be too small to recognise.  One page should work well though.

Regards

Quentin.
