>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.

>>One of the biggest items is 
  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.
>>The new 
  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.
