- NVDA and Email Images

Sometimes NVDA’s OCR works on images, sometimes I have to go to the full size page on Facebook, sometimes Facebook’s own OCR puts the text on there, but sometimes neither of those works and I have to turn my monitor on and use Seeing AI on my Iphone to read it. When all else fails, that one works.

Re: [nvda] NVDA and Email Images
I wasn't suggesting using NVDA+r to read captchas, indeed my other comment was that we CAN'T build a feature which will reliably do that - for the very reason that if we could, so could the people (or bots) the captchas are designed to stop in the first place. My suggestion for NVDA+r was in the case of someone's contact details being provided in an image - at least that was my understanding but maybe the question was simply how to get past the captcha to get to the contact details, in which case no, NVDA+r won't work there.

The accuracy of this tool to decipher captchas is so questionable as
to make it virtually useless in that regard.
