Re: NVDA and OCR software


Rui Fontes
 

It is a NVDA add-on that includes a command line OCR, NAPS2...


The add-on makes the two things...
NVDA+Control+R, in a selected file in File Explorer, makes OCR to the file.
NVDA+Control+shift+R scans a paper document from the scanner...

This looks like an NVDA addon.  Is it also a command line OCR app? I don't find that.

For free software, NAPS2, with a user interface or command line, and also packaged in an add-on by me, at:

    This is great if you need to scan a document into a PDF.
    However, is there any software or hardware/software that will
    take a PDF with a document that has beeen scanned into the PDF,
    and make that PDF of the scanned document be able to print.  I
    can use the windows OCR with NVDA to read the document, but can
    not print it.  Can you help me here?

            Hello everyone,

            I do not know if this is a question better suited for the
            chat subgroup, if it is, please tell me.

            If it’s ok to post it here, however, here it goes: if you
            use any kind of OCR solution that can open and OCR PDFS
            and acquire images from scanners, what would you
            recommend for efficient use with NvDA?

            If that OCR had the ability to keep the formatting and
            layout of the document, that would be a much needed extra.

            Thanks for any answer.

            Best regards.

            Francisco.
