That’s great! I changed that option and JFW loaded it right up, faster than before.
How did you find out about that option?

It will get stuck, unless you switch to “Read raw print stream”.

Thanks a lot.
JFW seems to get stuck at 79 per cent.

Hi, Joseph. I have written you privately and put the pdf document you wanted in Microsoft Word, docx format. Please let me know if you would prefer the document in another format.
Thanks, I’ll give that a look.
The document is pretty straight forward, but, Adobe freezes in the middle of processing—maybe that’s actually JFW freezing. Maybe Adobe is just fine with it.
However, NVDA doesn’t like it either.
Just in case anyone wants to look at it, it’s an eBook on using FreeDOS.
The file is at:
Acrobat is always kind of sluggish.
If it’s not a scanned image document and is straightforward in general (iE, an etext or something), you can use qRead. It’s a nice little programme that very quickly opens pdf and epub files. I like it because it’s very fast. However it doesn’t have many of the features Adobe has. It’s generally meant for books or similar context with straightforward, linear text.
Recently, I have been needing to access some PDF’s. For some reason, whenever I try to use Acrobat Reader DC, the program seems to be very sluggish, sometimes, even unresponsive. Is this becoming a problem? If so, is there another solution that will work better with JFW?
