RE: JAWS 9 & Adobe 8.1

If you have open book or similar then use that to scan the document -
equally you can print to Microsoft office Document Image Writer instead
of a physical printer and then use Microsoft Document Imaging to OCR it.
(This was described a couple of weeks ago on the list). I agree with the
previous poster by the way - there is no text in the document that JAWS
can read directly.

HI, I bin having a problem with adobe 8 it told me to download the new
