PDF and OCR


Cheryl Traub
 

Hi guys. I think there was a message about this, but must have missed it.
Anyway, when I get a document and it says empty document and I open OCR, it
will say OCR component is not installed. Why does it say that? How do I
get OCR to read PDF files? It must be a hard process.

I've had this issue in the past.

Try running a repair.

I am a bit rushed for time now, But perhaps Mark B or some other kind sole can give instructions.

I assume you've invoked convenient OCr with the same results?

Okay. Well, I had the same results for a while now. My property manager sends stuff in PDF, but it's a picture and I can't read the picture. I ask him to put it in word. Sometimes he does, but sometimes he doesn't. I can read PDF files okay if they're typed out, but it seems like people just want to take a picture of it and send the picture. I don't really feel comfortable doing technical stuff like this repair thing.

Hi Cheryl,
I posted this on the list last week, because I had the same question.
Tec support told me that in order for this to work with Jaws, you have to
select the PDF file, then do a applications key or press F10. Arrow down to
Recognize with Jaws then press enter. Jaws will give you the "please wait"
and your document will load up. Hope this helps.

One more thing I want to add is that depending on what version of Jaws you
have your message might be different then what I posted. For example Mine
says "convenient OCR with Jaws. In earlier versions it says what I wrote.
I'm running Jaws 2019, and I'm getting ready to upgrade.

Hi James. There is no recognize. I tried both F10 and the applications
key. I went to the file. There is no recognize. By selecting the file, do
you mean just highlighting the file or opening the file? Well, it's still
not working. It won't work. If only people would either send stuff in Word
or send it as a PDF that is not just a picture, things would be great.

Hi James. That is what I got OCR with Jaws. I am running Jaws 2019. I
updated it. When I did OCR with Jaws, I got the same thing. It didn't read
it. Well, I hate this technical stuff. Maybe my manager will cooperate and
give me a Word document. Let's hope so.

Hi Cheryl,
It would be shift + F10 or the applications key, and you don't want to open
the file to make it work.

Oh yeah, one more thing Cheryl,
Are you trying to do this from within an eMail, or in a folder?
You will have better luck if you save the file to a folder outside of your

Hi Cheryl,
 
Just a thought but, why don't you try using the link below to download and install the latest J2019 version and maybe updating Jaws in this fashion will fix the problems you're having.  Using the update option from within Jaws has caused many others problems and that's why Freedom Scientific recommends updating by downloading the installer executable file and installing it using the downloaded installer.
 
 

Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.

I used the update feature for years and haven't had problems. I feel
comfortable with the update feature. Okay. If the update feature isn't
recommended, then why is it here then? I want to know that.

Hi Cheryl,

Just a thought but, why don't you try using the link below to download and
install the latest J2019 version and maybe updating Jaws in this fashion
will fix the problems you're having. Using the update option from within
Jaws has caused many others problems and that's why Freedom Scientific
recommends updating by downloading the installer executable file and
installing it using the downloaded installer.

It would be shift + F10 or the applications key, and you don't want to open

Hi James. There is no recognize. I tried both F10 and the applications
key. I went to the file. There is no recognize. By selecting the file, do
you mean just highlighting the file or opening the file? Well, it's still
not working. It won't work. If only people would either send stuff in Word

Hi Cheryl,
 
FS tech support has never given a direct reason but, downloading the installer is what they recommend.  Many people on this list can attest to this as well as many people on this list can attest to having to repair Jaws after using the updating feature you're using.  If you want to hear why call them and ask them.  You're having a problem so, what's going to hurt by trying something a little different.  When one thing doesn't work in other circumstances don't you try something different?  I'm not trying to be argumentative, just suggesting an alternative.  If you have Openbook installed you can use Openbook's Freedom Import Printer to scan the file as well.  To do it OB trythe following.
1. Open the file in question and press the print command, Control + P.
2. When the print dialogue opens navigate to the, Freedom Import Printer, option and press enter.
3. Give OB a little time to OCR the file and OB will come up talking and processing the file, then you can save it in your format of the choices given.

Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.

If it is not in the list of available programs, you can navigate to it, the executable in Program Files is obu.EXE.
Or you could arrow to the file, press shift + applications, and press the letter A, and then open Open Book, do control + O, do the paste command and press enter.

Downloading and updating using the updater depends heavily on an internet connection, and if that happens to drop during the installation, parts of the jaws update can be lost. You’re right, it’s annoying, but you’ll get your issue solved if you just follow the advice here and update using the installation file Mike has provided.

I used the update feature for years and haven't had problems.  I feel
comfortable with the update feature.  Okay.  If the update feature isn't
recommended, then why is it here then?  I want to know that.

Hi Cheryl,
 
Just a thought but, why don't you try using the link below to download and
install the latest J2019 version and maybe updating Jaws in this fashion
will fix the problems you're having.  Using the update option from within
Jaws has caused many others problems and that's why Freedom Scientific
recommends updating by downloading the installer executable file and
installing it using the downloaded installer.

Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.

Hi Cheryl,
It would be shift + F10 or the applications key, and you don't want to open
the file to make it work.
HTH.

Hi James.  There is no recognize.  I tried both F10 and the applications
key.  I went to the file.  There is no recognize.  By selecting the file, do
you mean just highlighting the file or opening the file?  Well, it's still
not working.  It won't work.  If only people would either send stuff in Word
or send it as a PDF that is not just a picture, things would be great.

Hi Cheryl,
I posted this on the list last week, because I had the same question.
Tec support told me that in order for this to work with Jaws, you have to
select the PDF file, then do a applications key or press F10. Arrow down to
Recognize with Jaws then press enter. Jaws will give you the "please wait"
and your document will load up. Hope this helps.
Best: James

Hi guys.  I think there was a message about this, but must have missed it.
Anyway, when I get a document and it says empty document and I open OCR, it
will say OCR component is not installed.  Why does it say that?  How do I
get OCR to read PDF files?  It must be a hard process.
