Hi Tom! Yes, I have seen this before. The way I resolved it was to make the font of the document larger. For some reason, that helped JAWS read the document better. You may want to give that a try.
I have recently noticed a problem with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC version 17.0.
For some reason, words are often run together in the document when I’m trying to read it.
This problem does not appear on the visual screen. In other words, if someone sighted looks at the document, it looks fine, with no words or characters run together.
This seems to occur mainly with Microsoft Word documents that have been converted to a PDF file format.
I’m thinking that this problem might be a Jaws issue, because the document displays fine visually.
Has anyone else had this issue, and if so, is there something I need to change either in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC or Jaws to make documents read more properly?
Thanks as always!
