Hi,


you still can get Finereader 15 Standard or corporate.

Re: end of the line for finereader

 

I don't see how a name change ties into accessibility in any way, but it's possible I missed something because your formatting was so broken up. But, anyway, below are alternatives for opening PDF files.

  1. Opening them in Microsoft word. Word 2016 or later will convert most PDF's into a workable state, where you can then save it in an alternative format.
  2. Use this program. Codex.
  3. Adobe Reader can convert PDF to text. It's not gonna look very clean, though.

Hi all.
Well, looks like fine reader just had a name change since I have gotten
it.
It seems to be called fine reader 15 pdf now.
Since support and abbyy don't seem to deem it important to fix the
accessibility issues and since it all seems locked to business now I
think it is time for me to cut my losses and upgrade.
The last version was released at the end of the year.
What ocr program should I use instead of abbyy fine reader.

Yes, turn it on with nvda shift s, then tab twice, I believe? Read the manual for more info, as I'm giving you the long and short of it.

I would look at text cloner from premier literacy, hope I spelled that correctly.
I know of two blind people using it with great success and it is completely accessible and about $129.00 if I am not mistaken.
Hope this helps,

Re: Stop NVDA from automatically reading media on webpages

Braille input focus 40 blue 5th gen and NVDA

Justin Harford
 

Greetings everyone

I'm trying to learn about the braille display offerings out there to get a sense of a good match. I was recommended to take a look at the focus 40 blue fifth-generation. I read through their documentation and it almost sort of sounds like according to the brochure the ability to input braille is limited to when you are using JAWS, but when I look at the online manual from the company, it vaguely seems like any screenreader that supports braille input would work. Has anyone successfully used the focus 40 blue with NVDA to input braille?

That's an interesting question.  It may be what is known as a live region.
As far as I know, NVDA doesn't support not automatically reading live
regions.  I don't know about other screen-readers,  But in such a case, I
would suggest the following if you only want to rread content.
Select the entire page with control a and paste it to the clipboard.  Open
Notepad and paste it.  Then look for the beginning of the article, if your
screen-reader doesn't allow you to stop automatic reading of live regions.

Luke,

Unfortunately, though I get what you're saying, it just doesn't work that way.  It is up to the vendor, and the vendor alone, in consort with the purchaser to get something to work.  If the "some version" is hacked/cracked the law does not care, at all, that someone holds a valid license, as if they do they should be using a valid copy.
