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.

Hello Steve,

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


Steve

Brian,

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?

That would be great, wouldn't it?  Would certainly make dealing with daily mail easier (among other things).
