Re: Adobe Reader Question and a bug

Not sure I am explaining well. There used to be 2 different things that JAWS would read the percentage of the pages read as well as the page number that was processed ie. 50%.   Processed and 200 of 400 pages but now it reads the 200 portion as a percentage…I know what is happening and just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this.

Hi Joe,


That percentage count is the amount of processed pages by adobe before opening the pdf file. The bigger the file the longer the wait. I have a JQuery tutorial file that is over 500pages long and that takes a while. I usually start it and move on to something else.

Good Afternoon Folks


I am running JAWS 2018 with last weeks update with Windows 10. Has anyone experienced when Adobe is scanning the document for reading that it is reading the pages as a percentage? I was generating a billing document and this was a 400 plus page document and it kept reading the pages as a percentage rather than the page number. Just curious as today is the first day that I have opened a pdf since I updated JAWS.


Now to my question which is related . When I print a particular page from the document after the page prints Adobe rescans the document  for reading. Is there a way to not have it do that ? Or is it necessary? I had about 6 pages to print from this document and it wanted to rescan each time and finally just got sighted assistance which is not always readily available.
