Re: NVDA's built-in OCR Capabilities

That's a very contradictory point!
It's true that NVDA does not have the facility to let you scan a hardcopy document with a scanner directly, and we would also argue that is the realm of scanning software rather than your screen reader. Indeed, part of your Jaws cost goes towards the OCR license, so you could use NVDA and purchase a program like Abbyy FineReader which would give you similar functionality.
We're always open to ideas on how to improve NVDA. For something like this, we would either need a full OCR program which was free we could incorporate, or a paid add-on (or add-on which interfaced with a paid OCR program) which users could choose to use.
