Re: Issue with creating accessible PDF files.

I have that problem, too. Often when I open pdf files I've downloaded from a
service. What I sometimes get away with is having a sighted person open the
file, so that JAWS doesn't get a chance to process it. Then, the sightling
highlights all the text, copies it, pastes it into Notepad, and the text is
improved.

Same thing happens with some pdf files opened in Braillenote. It does matter
more than you'd think, for the reading gets really affected.

I would be very interested to know if this resolves your issue.

I've been bugged by that for years. The other day I was looking at such a
problem document, and decided to bring it into Word 13 to clean it up. Lo
and behold, the problem disappeared. It'll be interesting to see what
happens when I resave it to PDF.

Mike,

I've seen this with PDF files created by others, so it's not necessarily
something you're doing wrong. Reading the rendered document very often does
result in words being glued together, and I'm not sure if they were
originally separated by line breaks.

Best solution I've found is to use Freedom Import Printer to render into
text.

But again I think your document is fine, even if it reads weird. Have you
printed it and checked with Openbook, or showed to a sighted person?

Hi folks! I'm having an issue with creating an accessible PDF document. I
am able to create the document, and save it as a PDF file. When I pull up
the PDF file, JAWS reads it, but I'm noticing that the words are run
together, and JAWS tries to pronounce the words as one word, because there
is no space between the two or three words. It appears that JAWS is reading
this correctly. My concern is that somehow in the translation, the words
are being run together. How do you keep this from happening? Is there a
way to make these words have spaces between them?
