If you have an iPhone, the $5.99 Voice Dream Scanner processed all 448 pages in about 5 minutes, but you still are going to have all the distracting text.

Do you have Openbook, or another OCR program? That may be necessary to process such a large PDF file.
In the other version that shows constant headings, have you tried to save it as a plain text file?

Let me be clear: I’m not trying to start a political discussion!

I’ve searched the Web for a version of the Mueller Report that’s easy for JAWS to read. On more than one website, the entire text is copied, but each of the 440+ pages has a lot of heading text that’s very distracting. I’ve also downloaded the PDF file of the report. JAWS says it’s an “empty document,” and so I initiate Convenient OCR. However, it can’t get past page 182 without getting hung. I’ve tried three times.


So, two questions. First, has anyone here found a readable version of the report?

Second, more broadly, has anyone found a solution when a PDF file is apparently too big for JAWS Convenient OCR to process?
