Re: Openbook 9 and a Epson Scanner


It's probably Openbook that is making the sound, but not being able to hear the sound, I don't know that.  Openbook makes a repeated sound by default when scanning.
I'm not sure what the problem is but is version 9 of Openbook being used?  I'd have to look in the settings to find how to select the scanner being used.  See if there are multiple choices for the scanner, if your friend knows how to check and try others.  Sometimes there are choices such as unknown twain with and then the name of the scanner.  There may be one or two others for the same scanner.
If that doesn't help, I don't think I have other suggestions.  If you need to know how to find the selections, ask here.

Subject: [TechTalk] Openbook 9 and a Epson Scanner

Hi All,
A friend is running Windows 7 Home 32 bit, Jaws 13, Openbook 9 and an Epson Perfection V39 flatbed scanner.  When he gives the command to scan a document the scanner starts, but it won't stop and keeps making a ding sound every few seconds while scanning!  You have to press the spacebar to interrupt / stop the scan or it'll never stop.  Also, it never acquires any text for Openbook to read.  I don't have much experience with diagnosing scanners especially through a tandem session, so I don't have a clue as to why this behavior is happening.  If anyone knows why this is happening, would you please enlighten me?  All help will be greatly appreciated and graciously accepted.  Thank y'all very much.

Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.
