Re: off topic - accessibility

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?

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>

Ah, 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 at
opening PDF files and of course is accessible.
