You know you can open the PDF with JAWS as well? See my previous message.

All the best

The only thing that works for me is OCR--either with JAWS spacebar+insert, then o, then d for document; or Open the .pdf with Openbook. JAWS can't guess where the spaces should be, but OCR knows that there are words.

Good luck!

they may look fine, a screen reader will put words together.
Then again, sometimes they are just run together in the PDF.
Try bringing it into Word and see if that helps.
