Hi,

Not exactly, but one of the controls will be a document window where scanned text will be placed.

Cheers,

So, will this came FB reader work with the scanner that's hooked to the computer? Or is this just for window tablets? Please advise.

dropbox clarification

Bill Koppelmann <billmeister@...>
 

Hi Gene or whoever answers this,
Let's say that I have a folder called oldies and more which I'm paying for, and let's say that I'm putting my albums on dropbox, are you saying that all I have to do is to drop the zero at the end and I can post those links right here?
Would it be ok if the link is a folder rather than a zip? Just curious. so, if I'm not understanding something here, please clarify, ok?
thanks,
Bill K.

The keystroke is control + L. This is the only non intuitive aspect of Thunderbird. The standard Control + F is used to search within messages or groups of messages.

Hi Monte,

 

No.  It only works with windows 10.  I suspect that this had something to do with being able to being placed in the Windows Store.

I was able to use Jaws version 18 to buy from the store.  It's a bit tricky, but very doable.

Re: KNFB has come to W10

Bought it with JFW 18. Don’t recall any issues. Signed in with my Microsoft account, had to enable the  PC cursor since for whatever reason the touch  keyboard was activated when the store launched and with the arrow keys navigated to the buy now option and followed the prompts to enter in my case my credit card and  that was it more or less.

The KNFBReader folks responded to a tweeted question of mine and they say that the OCR should be on the level with K1000 scanning results. The few PDF files I’ve received as faxes have indeed been quite impressive.
