Re: JAWS and .pdf

Hello there;
No, I highly doubt the pdf document is blank.
There's probably text up on the screen, however, jaws is seeing the pdf as a
graphic, thus,
Blank document.

Could the "empty Document" message in Adobe programs be coming from JAWS
instead of Adobe.

Because there is no text information in the document, JAWS thinks the
document is blank, when in fact, it is not. Which is why JAWS is giving the

empty document message.

The empty document message means that Adobe Reader is unable to read the
document because it contains graphics that Adobe Reader cannot interpret.
If you have Open Book, selecting the Freedom Import Printer option from
the Adobe Reader Print menu will launch Open Book to scan the document and
attempt to convert the text contained within the graphics into speech
using OCR. The new convenient OCR feature of JAWS 13 will supposedly
accomplish the same thing, but my understanding is that this feature works
best on web page graphics, not document graphics. Has anyone successfully
converted an empty document into speech using the convenient OCR feature
of JAWS 13?

i'm not sure what you mean by an empty document that is readable.
If it's empty, there would be nothing to read??

Is there any way to make a .pdf document which shows up as an empty
