I have not found this ocr function and the software that comes with the
printer is not accessible. In fact, I bought a $27 program to scan into pdf
my important files (using Kurzweil to keep the images scans prints them in a
very reduced size to make them mostly unusable by sighted people).

Subject: Re: [nvda] OCR software?



One of the things I'm having trouble understanding here is the context or
contexts for the OCR processing being discussed:

1. At the time of scanning an actual print document on a flatbed or feeder
scanner.
2. In an existing document, such as an image scanned PDF or an actual image
itself that is known to be an image of a page of text.
3. "On the fly" in something that's an image being presented in, say, a web
browser that one would like to have read.

Virtually any relatively recent, and by that I do not mean new, scanner or
multi-function machine will come with an OCR engine as part of its
manufacturers software suite. Canon, HP, Kodak, and other multi-function
machines I've worked with were all able to scan with OCR as part of the scan
and, as it happened, their scanner control software was also accessible by
screen reader. I've been using Canon's multi-functions for years now, and
even the cheapest one (read: cost about $30 ten years ago) had a software
suite included with it that featured OCR as an integral part of scanning if
one identified what one was scanning as a document.

I've repeatedly mentioned that Tracker Software makes two excellent free
pieces of software that, while not 100% accessible, are 100% accessible for
doing OCR processing on image PDFs with a remarkable level of accuracy and
that also feature free language packs if you're not scanning documents in
English. See either PDF-XChange Viewer
<https://www.tracker-software.com/product/downloads/discontinued> or
PDF-XChange Editor <https://www.tracker-software.com/product/downloads> .

The "on the fly" instance is one where I don't know of anything off the top
of my head.

Re: accessible word processors with NVDA

There are programs such as Open Office which I've seen discussed often here.  But I haven't used them and I don't know what the limitations are in terms of accessibility.  I read the messages about such programs but I don't use them so I don't remember details.  The only thing I remember about Open office is that read to all doesn't work properly and, as I recall, the maximum that is read is a paragraph at which point, reading stops.

Well, I got Jarte, and checked the page linked in the help dialogue, and the link on that page is either broken or the resource it was supposed to direct you to has been removed. Either way, I'm having to work with rtf files, which NVDA doesn't like very much, at least when it comes to accurately reporting things like bold, italics and so on in Say-All. Still, it's better than nothing at all and it's portable. I suppose I could adjust to not having spoken page numbers for the time being.

Re: Start menu search box missing

I saw in an earlier message, that Shawn said to try a system reset.  I would think a system restore would be the first thing to try, if available.  A reset may solve the problem as well but I don't know if you would lose all sorts of settings and other modifications you have made.  I would find out before trying a system reset.

Also, since mouse tracking is on by default, even if you don't use the mouse or mouse pad routinely, all you need to do is randomly move the mouse around and NVDA will start talking if it's ready to speak.

On laptops I routinely tell my clients not to disable the mousepad, but to cover it with a small square of stiff cardboard taped down on one side so that it can be flipped open like a book. This way they can use the native left and right mouse buttons if they so desire and, when someone sighted wants/needs to use their computer, the mouse feature is there at the flip of a piece of cardboard. For those with desktop machines with an optical mouse one can do the same thing by covering the opening for the laser on the underside of the mouse. This allows it to be used for "is NVDA awake" checking with ease and then you flip the cover over the laser and put the mouse back down again, which also gives you access to the native left and right mouse click buttons if you wish to use them.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Returning from Sleep or Hybernation #addonrelease #adminnotice #addonrelease #adminnotice #cal-invite #cal-reminder #cal-invite #adminnotice


I have never had this issue at least on 7 nvda usually anounces the desktop or something when it comes back.
Another thing I have done is play some music just before I hybernate and then when it comes back I know.
I have never had any issues though, I never really hybernate unless I am running eurofly or need to be away for a little while only.
If I am away for a long time I tend to shut down the system entirely.

All,

I have my laptop set up to sleep when I close the lid while plugged in and hibernate when I close the lid on battery. This is working well as far as NVDA coming back when I return from sleep, but I would like a way to get a spoken announcement when the computer is ready to use after waking up.

Before I start trying to put something together with an add-on for NVDA or an autoHotKey script I'd like to know if anyone else has solved this.

Thank you,

Thomas

No but I do have some issues with some machines coming back from hibernate not seeing the network be it hard wired or wifi, which is a great shame as as you say, nvda seems pretty good.
I guess you could just try it. I don't see how this might be possible as hibernate is like a snapshot I always thought having no idea its been away, so to speak.

Re: Start menu search box missing

Chris
 

Ry right click on taskbar then go to Cortana the show search in the sub menu

 

 


re my issue I posted

 

Hi.
Reinstalled said addons golden curser, objpad, easy table etc.
I have not as yet reinstalled ventrilo but I suspect that this dev version is causing issues, I don't use ventrilo enough to warrent me needing the addon installed, but I'd really like to know what is causing the issue.
For now whhat I will have to do is run 1-2 windows at once which do not include eurofly, its a pitty because of the need to run other things with the game.
That is if I don't want to go insane fiirst because of not playing audio with the computer.
I guess I wiill just have to play cds while I do things.
maybe it will be fine if I just run audio without extra things who knows.
Maybe the addons needed reinstalling.
I have not reinstalled remote because I don't use it but still.

possible obj pad bug not sure

 

Hi.
Well I have been playing eurofly for some time.
if I kill nvda nice errrors come up, but as long as I don't kill it thats fine.
The reall issue happened a few days ago but got worst today.
I have obj pad, ventrilo which I use ffor testing but I have the beta addon well had because I now killed it and obj ppad.
I had a few extra security addons on firefox and such but even so that was not the big issue at alll.
I have easy table navigator installed to.
I had firefox, a downloads folder open, and an audio track playing with winamp.
I had just finished something with firefox 50.1 and closed it.
Sometimes it crashes but mostly its fine at any rate I had finished with it.
Nvda decided to be stuck in a table, this has happened before when quitting ventrilo but I have alt tab and its fine.
This time it decided to lock, a thing it has done in the past.
Half of the keys stopped working.
The first time I exited and it came back.
This time though, if I hit caps key and tab I was switching from scan to web to normal.
So I assume something was making objpad or nvda in general think it was in a strange mode.
No keys worked and I had to power off the computer and luckily it shut down.
When I mean no keys, nothing read right at all.
On a full reboot nvda now works but I have removed easy table nav, ventrilo, golden curser and objpad and hopefully things just work as they are supposed to.
It only works with that combination of things open.
It never happens if its one at a time though this game does use a lot of power.
I have used it before with winamp and firefox open, never large radio broadcast archives I usually pause the game for those.
