We've found the same thing using Kurzie version 12 though it's not always
successful!

I was going to say the same thing. I've recognized only a few pdf files.
I've started doing it more in recent months as I find stuff on the Internet
in pdf that I want to read. While there are some errors, I haven't found
them to come out badly at all with my K1000 version 11.03. It may be
relevant that the few files I've been recognizing so far have been academic
papers, so are pretty much all text and no images. I can imagine that OCR
might be worse if the file were more of a mixture of text and images.

Really?  I have done it in the past.  What are known issues?

Bummer that file format in which scans are saved is pdf.  That notoreously
OCR's very badly in most cases.

I would think it would be possible since it is stored on a regular SD memory
card in a non-proprietary format (PDF, I think) that can then be converted
by any OCR software to RTF.  Since there is no aperture determination needed
or focusing involved with fixed length focus, the only think left is does it
have smart cropping tech in the saving process.

I hope a blind person can use it.  I don't care about their software in the
least, if it can work with Kurzweil 1000.  Most scanners are initially set
up to take pictures, not do OCR.  That's why there is Kurzy and OpenBook
(don't get me started on OpenBook!!!).

 

I'm gonna have to check this out!  Thanks for putting me onto it, Valerie.

From what I can tell, it was delayed a year as they worked to make the frame
more durable and I saw a newer picture somewhere among the hundred or so
pages, but forgot to save that one...

 

It looks like good potential for me and my work style, but not everyone...
