Hi

I think, once the document is scanned using your HP OCR, jaws should able to read your scanned text document, try it.

Hi Ken,

Many thanks for your message. Yes my HP was only purchased some three
weeks or so ago and has scanning software on it. I have Jaws 10 but I
assume that I need additional software to convert text into speech as
the HP scanning facility will only scan (not scan and convert into
speech) or am I missing something?

Grateful for any help you can give.

Cheers,

Kevin

Kevin,

It may depend on the model of HP printer/scanner/copier you have, but the
one I have came with software that included OCR scanning. I have found it
fine for most things.

The software is called HP Solution Centre, for an HP Deskjet F4100 series
machine.

If you have this software, come back to me, and I will try and describe the
set up for OCR scanning.
