Hi there,

OCR will attempt to recognize whatever has NVDA focus. So to work with one of your image files, first open the file and then activate OCR to attempt to get the text from it. Once OCR finishes you will automatically be in the text viewer where you can use the arrow keys and other standard keys to review the text, just like in notepad or any other text area.
You can hold down shift while using the cursor keys to select text, just like in a text editor, and you can copy this to the clipboard so you can paste it elsewhere.
You can also hit the enter key on any word in the recognized text and this will simulate a mouse click on the underlying image. This is very useful for applications that are not otherwise accessible to screen readers.

Hope this helps get you started,

 Hello. I was wondering is the documentation for the OCR section in NVDA will be updated in the next version of NVDA cause I did download a couple of attachments they are JPG files and I did save them in the documents folder since am on a windows 10 machine with everything up to date. When I go to the file in the list of files when I land on that file was wondering should I open up the file then do the command nvda plus R, cause I do a nvda plus r command it says recognizing results and a second later it says done. Where do they go after the stuff has been recognized? When I do tab around I don't see another window open up displaying the results. Where do I go from here? Any help would be great. I hope in the next version of Nvda it will explain it in more detail. When I did it with Jaws it did a much better job, it sure would be nice if NVDA could do something similar.
