It isn't toll free. These days, most people don't pay for long distance calls but if you do, you will pay whatever you pay for calling a number in that area code. And if you have a pay as you go cellular plan where you pay by the minute, you will be charged.

Once again, the toll-free phone number for Voice Info is 866-895-3124. Even the cute little blackjack game still works. Try it for yourself.

Hi all.

I have an older copy of kurzweil1000 that i haven't been using because i haven't really needed OCR software. However, the time has come that i would like to have a good OCR program again for reading books and such.
So i'm curious what people think, is it worth upgrading kurzweil to the latest version? or is there better OCR software out there now?

I want something for a pc, not a mobile device.


Any thoughts are appreciated.


Thanks.

I'm a k1000 fan from way back. I thought I heard they were no longer
updating it, but could be mistaken. The current version is 14. I'm not sure
if version 13 will run on windows 10. Others might know.

Cheers.

Hi all,

Norman, if you intend to scan books, then you want to upgrade Kurzweil.
It will cost less than getting a new version and possibly less than Open
Book or even DocuScan Plus.

Kurzweil software is designed and produced by a company whose product is OCR
software and nothing else. That's all they do. Open Book is an
afterthought for Vispero. It is one of many, many products which they
offer, and hence is not as well crafted or as reliable as is Kurzweil.
They've now added their OCR software to Jaws, making it even more top-heavy
than it was before.

For my money, I'd go with Kurzweil. They know what they're doing.

Re: looking for a good wireless router/modem isn't in thesame room

Ah I see, did you get an external wireless card? Maybe your internal card is going bad if it is warn out!

I had mom get a net gear card and her laptop is still going  strong especially with the router. But still going to replace the modem when I find one. It is like the modem cant handle the data very well while the router is flying high with no drops. Cheers Heather

Re: looking for a good wireless router/modem isn't in the same room

Hi Joanne.  Strange as it may seem, there are certain spots within an area, a building or a house, say where data cannot, for some reason, travel between your wireless equipment and your pc, hence your inability to connect to the internet, even with a wireless modem/router operating to full capacity.  These spots are known as "Blind Spots".  The only way is to shift your pc's position so that it isn't located at that blind spot so the wireless router/modem can then communicate with your pc.  It also happens with mobile phones where in certain areas or spots, no incoming or outgoing call is posible to make or recieve.  Cheers!

Re: cleaning old messages out of thunderbird

Gene
 

Its much more efficient to look through the folders in the program itself. Since it is an IMAP account, all mail on the server will, I think, be there. Look in the all mail folder, which is a folder in GMail where all your mail may be. I'm not sure just how things are organized but trash may not have mail that is in all mail.

This actually gives me another idea, most of the time after I read a
message I immediately delete and then like you there are times when I
realize either right away or later on that I should've sent a reply to
that message. Up to now I've always just gone into my trash folder in
thunderbird trying to find the message and sometimes I find it and
sometimes I don't, but since you mentioned going back to the site and
searching there for messages I want I'll try that next time. Hopefully
what I'm looking for will be easier to find on gmail.com than it often
tends to be in thunderbird's trash.

No, there is no option for emptying the Sent or Spam folders. The easiest way to accomplish this is to focus on the list of messages in each foler, perform a select all command (control-A) and then press the delete key to move them all in one fell swoop to the trash folder. Then when you empty the trash folder, all the sent and spam messages will also be deleted along with the rest of the trash.

You are talking about using the e-mail program, not the web site, which, as I understand the question, is what is being asked about.  Also, the person didn't say he wanted to delete all the messages from the various folders. Your procedure will delete all messages from every folder where this is done.  What is wanted needs to be clarified.  Also., you are talking about emptying the messages on the machine.  If you want to actually delete the messages from the web site, when using GMail, I'm not at all sure that works when using an e-mail program.

No, there is no option for emptying the Sent or Spam folders. The easiest way to accomplish this is to focus on the list of messages in each foler, perform a select all command (control-A) and then press the delete key to move them all in one fell swoop to the trash folder.  Then when you empty the trash folder, all the sent and spam messages will also be deleted along with the rest of the trash.

Hi all,

I only have a gmail address in thunderbird and I see under the file menu an option to empty the trash. Is there a quick way to delete messages from the sent mail folder and the spam folder, other than going into each folder and selecting the messages and deleting them that way that is?

Thanks.

How old is the version you are using? In my opinion, there hasn't been really revolutionary improvement in OCR accuracy for quite some time. That doesn't mean that you might not want to upgrade. there might be improvement enough in the kinds of material you expect to scan. But can you use the old version with whatever version of Windows you have? If so, why not see how it performs on material of the sort you expect to regularly scan. Then, you can determine if you are satisfied or not with what you have. if the version you have doesn't run in your version of Windows, then you will have to do something.

Hi all.

I have an older copy of kurzweil1000 that i haven't been using because i
haven't really needed OCR software. However, the time has come that i
would like to have a good OCR program again for reading books and such.
So i'm curious what people think, is it worth upgrading kurzweil to the
latest version? or is there better OCR software out there now?

I want something for a pc, not a mobile device.


Any thoughts are appreciated.


Thanks.

What version of Kurzweil do you have?
Which version of windows do you want to use with k1000?
