Scanning Program


My daughter is blind, and needs a program that would allow her to scan a printed form, and then be able to have the scanned document read by a digital text reader program called JAWS. (It reads the digitized text and speaks it to her).

The problem that I have found with a similar type of software is that the scanned form is a graphic image that can be filled in.

It's fine for a sighted program, but the JAWS program will not read the graphic form text, so users don't know what information is called for.

Is anyone familiar with a program that would permit a scanned form to be translated into digitized text -- as is done with an OCR program? I would appreciate any information.
