Re: does jaws have a built in OCR?

Yes.  It is accessed by going into, now I don't remember what it's called but it used to be known as the home-row utilities, JAWS Key plus Spacebar, then O, then either W for Window, S for Screen, or C for Control. Here's the help text from H with more info:

The following commands are available in the OCR layer.
Acquire and OCR a print document from a Scanner or Freedom Scientific Camera such as PEARL, using the letter A.
OCR a scanned PDF Document opened in Acrobat Reader using the letter D.
From Windows Explorer, you can OCR any Image File using the letter F.
From the computer screen itself, you can OCR a Control with C, Window with W, or the entire Screen with S.

You can press Q to quit or cancel an OCR job.
