Don’t know .kurzweil 1000 has not been updated  since 14. Since  the  developer of Kurzweil 1000 for the blind has retired. they are still keeping Kurzweil 3000 product around. Maybe download  a trial of  that and see how it works.   The other  thing I can think of is open book by VFO or omni page .but with omni page I have not tried and don’t know how  well it will work .

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.

Re: end of the line for finereader

 

As for omnipage it appears nuance has sold it to a company called kofax along with paperport.


My brother scanner has the last version of paperport 14.2 and its not accessable really I mean it was at one stage but who knows.

In 2016 I got an offer on aother computer from some speech recognition software for omnipage but didn't need it at the time.

if I'd known I would have got that one then.

Yeah k1000 aint available and the last version was 2015 which was a shame.

It handled pdf, braille transcription and the like.

Still who knows.

If this text cloner pro actually works out I will be happy.

Re: end of the line for finereader

 

Hmmm just got text cloner pro or am attempting to get it.

Buying the program does take me to a webpage with an error, doodling with that a bit more got me to a page where I could enter my transaction id and which I did.

However the paypal recipt seems to point me at something called apollo communication which seems to not exist domain wize so have emailed the company support for textcloner.

Lets hope its all interconnected as there was other stuff there I may be interested in later.

If not I will have to ask paypal for a refund due to the nonexistant domain.

It seems like I can still download abbyy fine reader 14 so temperarily I will probably downgrade to that.

The abbyy fine reader 15 aint actually that bad as such, but as long as I do not ever need the menu bar or the main window of the main app it works.

I do not process a large amount of paper documents though and with things like codex and a wordprocesser like jarte I will be fine.

Of course jarte doesn't have the ability to convert or reade older word documents and only certain formats.

So I may in the end need to get something like libre office to handle all this stuff.

Re: end of the line for finereader

 

I know about these.

My issue is if its just for pdfs does abby pdf fine reader scan paper documents anymore.

Its after all why I have ocr software.

  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.

Re: switching sound cards with NVDA

Luke Davis
 

No, but that is an excellent idea.

Will you please create a feature request issue for it? https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/issues

The idea being a (default unassigned) gesture to cycle through the available sound devices.

That could solve several problems, such as when connecting a new sound device and Windows loses track of what should be default, or Windows and NVDA do their flip-flop of default and selected, as sometimes happens.
