Re: Reading PDF with Jaws


Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

I never got around to installing 11. In fact, given my lac of connectivity at home, it's been a while since I've downloaded anything, I've3 been taking things too and from the office by sneaker net, when necessary.

That goes for me too. I wasn't even aware of that submenu. Last time I made that change, it was under Internet Options.

Thanks. I'm glad you knew. In case Julie is still reading this thread, you get to the edit menu by pressing alt-e when Adobe is in focus.

You are on the right track. In Adobe Reader, go to the Edit menu and scroll all the way down to the Accessibility submenu and select Set-up Assistant.
On page 5 of 5, the last page, of the Set-up Assistant is a check box labeled "DisplayPDF documents in the web browser" which should be unchecked so that the web page is processed directly by Adobe Reader outside of the browser and not by the browser's PDF reader add-on, which does not always work, especially in Windows 7 and later. .

I was afraid you'd ask! I think it used to be simple, but I couldn't find the relevant setting in Adobe. If it's anywhere, it's in preferences, which you can reach quickly by pressing control-k.

So just now I went to Google. The following link takes you to an Adobe webpage that provides instructions. Basically, they say you need to go to your browser and make the change there. Sorry I can't give you a simple answer, but I hope this page is helpful and that opening PDF files in Adobe solves the problem:

Are you opening these PDF files in IE or Adobe? If in IE, you might switch to open in Adobe only.

I periodically have problems reading PDFs. I receive message that says it needs to search IE for a fix. . and then it comes back saying that a resolution could not be found. I know at one time I had to update the file associations so that it used Adobe to access PDFs. That still seems to be in place. Does anyone have this same problem or know of a resolution?

I know when the title bar states the document is empty I have to open it using the Freedom Import Printer in OPenBook . So, this is a different problem.

Thanks for any help.
