Subject: Karlen Communications and Karen McCall books
I actually talked to Karen. She is a very nice and quite knowledgeable MS
I bought one of her book packages on MS Office. It is on Office 2007, but I
figure the changes to 2010 won't be that difficult to master.
My challenge is my lack of familiarity with using PDF documents. I almost
always convert them to Word. Karen's book, however, is protected, and I
The main part of the book (and there are separate sample files and sample
summary files, including a summary of ribbon commands in Excel format) is a
huge PDF file. After 20 minutes of trying to load it, I killed the
operation and, in accessibility options, set Acrobat to read in chunks if
the file is greater than 10 pages.
I read the JAWS help topics on Acrobat and learned stuff I already knew,
e.g., the quick keys and other HTML reading commands work.
What about reliably going from page to page and landing at the top of the
page? Control pagedown does not work reliably. Using the Acrobat View, Go
to, Next page command doesn't work reliably. Right arrow key does not work
Anything I'm missing? Surely, something like this, which is supposed to be
accessable to screen readers, should be accessable.
With JAWS it is also painfully slow. Five seconds to go from one page to
the next is not acceptable.
