Re: NVDA OCR with adobe image file
First, are you sure the first page of the file has recognisable text? If it is a cover sheet for example, it may not be readily scannable. OCR will only work with onscreen text, rather than giving you a whole document at once.
I have always performed the OCR on the alert about it being a blank document: I don’t understand the purpose of you pressing the home button before doing the OCR I’m a fraid.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA OCR with adobe image file
I have a scanned image in an Adobe .pdf file. I want to run NVDA’s OCR over it. When I open the document in adobe Acrobat DC I get a message that this is a blank document. I press F6 twice and press enter on the home button. Then I press NVDA+R and I hear “recognising” and below that “result document” but there is no text showing.
I know that this document is an image of scanned text because I can convert it using Abbyy Finereader.
All advice and instructions welcome!
All the best,
