Hi Sue,

I did start writing an update to the OCR section, I'll have to find that.  Meanwhile, if you have a JPG file in your documents folder, you will need to open that.  If you press ENTER on it, I think Windows will open it in the Photos app maybe?  Either way, once it's open you can then use NVDA+r to run OCR.  You then use your regular reading or navigation keys (EG NVDA+down arrow to say all, or the arrows to move around) to read the results.  Once done, press escape to close the temporary buffer and return to where you were.

Kind regards

  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.
