11/4/2015 3:27:38 PMVirtual View 5.0 now supports exciting new features such as the ability to OCR images from files or the screen, plus virtualizing various document formats, including PDF files. Here are some other features:
  • You can open an image in any format (jpg, bmp, png, tiff, etc.).
  • If you press Alt-Print Screen to capture the active window, Virtual View will automatically OCR it for you.
  • The Virtual View options dialog lets you control image manipulation to increase OCR success.
  • Supports UAC, allowing you to get contents (specifically UIA) from windows that are elevated.
  • Images inside PDF files are prepended with [BEGIN IMAGE] and appended with [END IMAGE].
  • You can choose several different kinds of file formats to virtualize, including:
  • Txt
  • Html
  • Xml
  • Zip
  • And if you have Office installed:
  • Docx
  • Xlsx
  • Pptx
Imagine a Word document filled with text boxes and word art. That information will show up as plain text when passed through Virtual View. Spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations are the same way. If you want to quickly skim a PowerPoint presentation without opening PowerPoint, use Virtual View. With zip files, Virtual View can open the zip file and get the text of all text files. At the very least, you can get a list of the files in the archive.

Version 2.4

12/1/2008 11:26:08 AM
  • VV now keeps from being able to bring up multiple copies of the dialog when it is active (but still lets you bring up multiple dialogs for all other windows).
  • VV now includes the GW Micro script license.

Version 2.3

12/1/2008 11:26:23 AM
  • VV now does a better job of keeping track of active and focused windows.

  • Added real script help instead of "Coming Soon!"

Version 2.0

12/1/2008 11:27:07 AM

  • Now when you launch the VV dialog, you will be prompted to virtualize the active window or the focused window. There's also a check box that lets you stop the dialog from showing every time. If you uncheck the check box, whatever button you select will be used from then on. You can change the prompting of the dialog using the Help and Options button, which is now also located in the VV dialog itself.

Version 1.7

12/1/2008 11:29:22 AM
  • You can now press the letter D to execute a double click left mouse click on the clip that the text represents. This is a nice way to open shortcuts, and do things that require double-clicking.

12/1/2008 11:29:43 AM
  • You can now put the cursor in any text, and press the letter C to close the VV dialog, and execute a single left mouse click on the clip that text represents. This provides a quick way to click on buttons, check or uncheck check boxes, select list items, etc.
  • The VV script is now digitally signed, as is the VV WEPM.

  • The Include Types check box in the script options is now enabled, and will include the type of window the clip came from when displaying the virtual view window.
  • The main edit box now gains focus when the dialog gets created so that you don't have to do a Control-Home to move to the top of the content.

Version 1.4

12/1/2008 11:30:26 AM
  • Added Copy Selection, Append All, and Append Selection buttons to perform those respective tasks.
  • You can now put the cursor in any text, and press the letter R to close the VV dialog, and place the mouse pointer on the clip that text represents.

12/1/2008 11:30:38 AM
  • VV now has an options dialog, accessible via the Help and Options button in the Script Manager. There's only one option, currently: Include Labeled Graphics. This option defaults to off. If it is enabled, graphics that have been labeled will be included in the text.

12/1/2008 11:30:51 AM

I find this app extremely helpful for getting to text in programs that you normally can't get to using the keyboard. A very useful app.
