Yes, it can convert to and from a long list of (mostly 
inaccessible) file types including inaccessible pdfs.  You can 
either upload your file at www.robobraille.org or e-mail it to 
convert at robobraille.org attached to a blank e-mail with the file 
type you want it converted to in the subject line.

I apologize, I am slightly ignorant on this topic. What is Robo 
braille? Wednesday, say, convert a PDF that is composed of images 
instead of text, into an accessible format (if an individual 
doesn't have the latest version of jaws with the new document 
OCR).

 quite a few times, though in my experiences at least it can take 
a
 little longer for image conversion than documents.  Just don't 
freak
 out if it takes them a little longer to email you the text.  :)

 able to be made accessible.

 Hi NABS,
 I am writing to see if there is any way I can access texts that 
are
 formated
 as jpg image files on the web.
 Here is a sample link.
 
http://dspace.wrlc.org/view/ImgViewer?url=http://dspace.wrlc.org/
doc/manifes
 t/2041/40106
 This is a part of The Silent Worker, a Deaf community newspaper 
from the
 19th century and the early 20th century (home page found here...
 http://proxy.aladin0.wrlc.org/gsdl/collect/gasw/gasw.shtml
 )
 I need to access articles from here as a part of my assignment 
for History
 of Deaf Community in America class.
 The professor is understanding of the accessiblity problem so we 
are
 looking
 at different altermnative options but I would love to know if 
there is any
 way I could access the texts found on this website such as the 
sample link
 I
 provided above.
 Will KNFB Reader be able to somehow convert the images and 
recognize texts?
 If so how would I be able to do it?
 Any other suggestions are welcome.
 Miso Kwak
