Yep, loved that app, used it for my research papers which I passed btw. Glad to have that over with. I will be trying this ad don as soon as I find an inaccessible pdf.

I forgot to mention that I was referring to the present state of the add-on. I wanted to say it can be done now but like Brian pointed out there will be some cleanup to follow. Of course, it will be great to have the add-on access the device directly and produce the accessible format. This was how I used Serotek’s Docuscan on my Mac. There was a ’Scan’ button pressing whereupon you get a viewer window where you can read the text and if desired, save it to different file formats.

What scanner software? I was talking about using the add-on to access the camera or scanner directly through its software interface, bypassing the need to use it. JAWS does this very successfully.
All the best
In case of a flat bed scanner, wouldn’t the scanner software be able to create a PDF of the scan? And the camera would create the image file. So it looks like the add-on can be used as a mail reader. Am I missing something?

All you need now is an option to scan from a camera or flatbed scanner connected to the computer.
That would be great, wouldn't it? Would certainly make dealing with daily mail easier (among other things).
