Rick,

Did you tell us what version of Adobe Reader or Acrobat that you're using?

Adrian:

Often when I do a JAWS Find after I get to the page I want to go to, it
doesn't find the text, I hear a beep, then afterwards JAWS won't work on the
page at all. It is just as if the screen were frozen.

Hi, Rick.

After you click on the link, do you navigate down the page in search of
that
text? I find such webpages operate inconsistently, but usually (not
always)
the text I want appears further down. Sometimes a JAWS find for the
heading
gets me there. Other times, it takes the down arrow key and navigation
commands such as p an n.

However, on one website I use frequently, the text doesn't appear at all
to
JAWS, even though it's on the screen, and none of my PDF tactics works. I
hope that isn't the case for you in this instance.

This year, my employer, instead of sending out a print copy of its open
enrollment handbook with the summary of medical benefits for 2012, has
made
its open enrollment handbook available only online, and I am having a
terrible time navigating it. Whenever I go to the link in the Table of
Contents for the page I want to read, I hit the Enter key and wait for the
page to load. But when it does, I always find myself still on the Table
of
Contents page instead of on the page I really want to read. Am I doing
something wrong, or is the handbook in such a format that JAWS can't read
it?
