Re: ocr software

Hi

It has to  be done in a 2 step process, first use the scanner software to obtain an image file, then use the NAO add-on for NVDA to open and recognise the image file.  Check the Help information of the NAO add-on to find out what types of image file can be recognised and set the scanner software accordingly.

 

Cheers

I just checked the help information and that is correct.  It scans

documents on the system or on a drive connected to the system.
