It's a program to scan printed material and convert it to accessible formats, accessible as in it can be read with screen readers.

Hi. Is there a download link for Fine Reader. I did have Abby Fine REader 6 a couple of years ago on my old machine and it was accessible. ----- Original Message ----- From: Steve Nutt

   Hi Dean,



FineReader is very accessible. Not only that you can scan straight into Word, which of course, is accessible.



I also use Kurzweil, but I don't use Open Book as it is even more bloated and is slower than K1000 on my machines. K1000 is excellent though at what it does.



   All the best



   Steve

I've never quite got round to trying Abbyy FineReader but I heard it was very accessible. How accessible is it?

   Hi Peter.

Yes I know, 15 was nice but 16 has a completely new interface. They've crammed a lot more options on the main screen and they've stacked pages on top of each other, they call it a tabbed interface but its a pain in the ass to navigate.

Omnipage 15 is very accessible with JAWS and having used Kurzweil 11 for my work, I much prefer to use Omnipage 15.

   Hi Everyone.



I'm looking in to buying a talking OCR product like Open Book or Kurzweil as the commercial offerings OmniPage and Fine Reader aren't terribly accessible with jaws. I'm currently giving Open Book a go and was wondering what other people who used this product think. I have used kurzweil in the past, but I've always found it rather bloated and frequently crashing so I've steered clear of it lately. Anyone who has used both products and can give me a rundown of the pros and cons of each respectably, I'd be very grateful.



   All the best, Ibrahim Gucukoglu
