>This is indeed big news. I'm sure improvements to text recognition will
need to be made and adjustments implemented to fix potential bugs. But the
access this gives us is truly fantastic, and the time-saving possibilities are
exciting to consider.

Convenient OCR--for all those nasty PDF files that are inaccessible and refuse
to be read...AH HAH...there is a solution now
>>Frequently, you will
encounter images that contain textual information. These can include a PDF
file, the setup screen of an application, or the menu of selections for a DVD
movie. While these images contain text that is readable by a sighted person,
JAWS is unable to read the text as it is part of the image.
Convenient OCR (Optical Character Recognition) feature enables you to access
any image on the screen that includes text. With just a few simple keystrokes,
JAWS will recognize the image in a matter of seconds and activate the JAWS
cursor so you can navigate the resulting text. The recognized text will be in
the same location as the actual image on the screen. In order to differentiate
the recognized text from other text that may be in the window, JAWS will use a
different voice when it encounters the recognized text. When you activate the
PC cursor, or switch to another application or dialog box, the text is
removed, and you will need to perform the OCR again.
>>To use Convenient
OCR, the following layered keystrokes have been added:
O, W. Recognizes the current application window that has
>>INSERT+SPACEBAR, O, S. Recognizes the entire
>>INSERT+SPACEBAR, O, C. Recognizes the currently selected control,
such as a graphical button.
>>INSERT+SPACEBAR, O, Q. Cancels recognition
while it is in progress.
>>INSERT+SPACEBAR, O, H. Speaks a brief help message
describing the commands in the OCR layer.
