ah that it will Jamal, but I have unfortunately run into a problem with your little Gem.
I started using the OCR abilities, and it does a good job of OCR'ing things so far for me, but... the load up is bad on the system, and large items (many I have are well over 50 pages, some run into the 300 + size) will generally, I should say so far always, keep building load on my system until CPU usage is 100% and its not done with 60 pages.
and then it freezes up my system, I can alternate windows, I can get to my desktop, but nothing will run or actuate, even running device manager is slow as a snail and I get a not responding notice in there and have to kill it, losing the stuff that was being worked on, and winding up with a zero.
got any ideas? inthane----- Original Message ----- From: "Jamal Mazrui" <empower@xxxxxxxxx>

FYI -- PDF2TXT http://EmpowermentZone.com/p2tsetup.exe converts PDFs to text *much* faster than Adobe Reader. It can convert any number of PDFs in a directory with a single command. It can convert PDFs that Adobe Reader either cannot or will not convert. <grin> Jamal On Fri, 19 Dec 2008, Chris Hallsworth wrote:Date: Fri, 19 Dec 2008 19:46:43 -0000 From: Chris Hallsworth <christopherhallsworth71@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> Reply-To: programmingblind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx To: programmingblind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: off topic - accessibilityAh, but perhaps Fox It reader hasn't got the code to tell screen readers to activate its virtual buffer. I found Adobe Reader 9 to be reasonably fast atopening PDF files and of course is accessible. -- Chris Hallsworth E-mail: CH9675@xxxxxxxxxxx MSN: CH9675@xxxxxxxxxxx Skype: chrishallsworth7266 ----- Original Message ----- From: "Octavian Rasnita" <orasnita@xxxxxxxxx> To: <programmingblind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Friday, December 19, 2008 3:51 PM Subject: off topic - accessibility > Hi, > > Does anyone know a better and accessible pdf reader than Adobe Reader? > (That opens faster). >> I heard that Foxit reader is accessible with Window Eyes.
