Good afternoon Larry,

As for scanners and OCR I would recommend the Fujitsu ScanSnap line. I don't remember my model number but it is a sheetfeed scanner that processes apx. 16 double sided pages / minute. The scanner comes with Adobe Acrobat Professional and Abby Finereader. It is quite accessible with JAWS and can take a stack of papers and convert it into a text-based PDF at the push of a button. The software works with Windows XP and Vista. My model was around $400 USD.

As for VOIP, I would recommend the Asterix server. This is a linux based, and I believe open source, solution that can be managed from configuration files and xml files. I'm sure that there are front-end GUI interfaces for it, but I don't know how accessible they would be.

If you would like any more information feel free to contact me off list.

Subject: OCR Software and VOIP management

I am considering the purchase of a scanner and OCR software.
I am somewhat aware of the high dollar blind boutique OCR programs however,
I have also heard about certain off-the-shelf OCR packages that will play
well with Jaws. I am using Jaws release and Windows XP-Pro. Do you
folks have any experience or recommendations with respect to these
mainstream programs?
Secondly, Are you aware of anybody who is successfully managing a
multi-station VOIP phone system using jaws?
