Re: NVDA OCR with adobe image file

What happen in the file when you open the PDF with a browser? Firefox, Chrome, Edge and others browsers based in Chromium (Brabe, Opera, etc.) read PDF files, and in Some cases let that NVDA detect the graphics, and you can use the OCR pressing f11 for complete screen before of NVDA+r.

Thanks for esponding!
As soon as I opened the file, I received no response from within the file. I pressed down-arrow and then up-arrow and I got the message “Empty document” as you suggested. I then pressed NVDA + r and got the following response:
“This document appears to be empty. It may be a scanned image that needs OCR or it may be a malformed document”
The Result line shows no data at all.
Would it be possible to share this file with you and see what you observe about it? The content is Irish so I don’t expect you to validate the text but, at least, you might be able to determine why the OCR is not happening.

Try pressing NVDA+r when you first open the file and get the message about it being blank.
