Re: jfw Digest V3 #49

hello Jouie!

Why you need to convert your PDF into a word document file? Since, PDF files are more smaller than a word document and yet, ADOBE 7 is very accessible with JAWS. but, if you still want to convert your PDF files into a word document file, open your PDF files and look for the File menu, and Save As... There you will find the data type you wish to convert.

Hi:

I have that updated version of the adobe and it's now 7.0 is that right?
Then as you said it isn't accessible for JAWS. For the solution of using an
OCR, can you give me the steps on how to convert it to text? I mean the PDF
files. I think it can also be in a word file. If you have an idea of using
Scansoft's OCR, the one I'm using, can you share it to me. I'm getting a
hard time handling PDF documents for that these documents are very important
to me.


Thank you!

One problem you will have once you've downloaded your updated version of
acrobat, you may still find an empty document.
That is often because (1) the authors didn't turn on the make accessible
settings from the outset; and (2) someone just took a WORD file and scanned
it and saved it as a pdf file.

The only recourse you have is to get an OCR program that will scan the
image back into text. It isn't always reliable or accurate, but you can do
it.

If you have a scanner, the scanning software usually has an OCR engine and
a wizard that will take you through the OCR process.

There are also many stand alone OCR programs from ScanSoft, Readiris,
others. Just hook up to the web and put those names in the search box. Many
are free, and updates aren't too expensive.

Hey everyone,

I use jaws 6.0 and I am unsure of how to get .pdf files to read in Adobe
Acrobat using jaws. It's never worked for me before, although I am sure I
have heard of others using it with jaws successfully.

I have never tried actively getting it to work, as I have never really
needed acrobat, but in a class this upcoming semester, I was told by the
teacher to famliarize myself with the program and .pdf files.

I am totally ignorant on this subject so could anyone help me to get
Acrobat to be read with jaws? Thanks in advance!

-Marc

The sound is DoubleSpeak; not bad. But audio books with narrators have the
narrator's voice instead of an electronic voice.


They usually come as MP3 files. Have you seen the audible.com site?
There are a number of others, which I have yet to investigate.

What version of jaws are you using? Also do you have the standard
version of jaws or the pro version. That will make a difference. If your
computer is what they call a media center computer, then you also have the
media center version of windows which means that you'll have to upgrrade
to
the pro version of jaws.
