Re: Saving a PDF in Word

When in word, hit control F12.
Then, tab over to “open”, and highlight the PDF you want to convert to a Word document.
Hit enter on open, and you will get a message saying that the conversion will begin once you give your ok.
Once the conversion is done, the file will be an editable Word document, and will have the .docx file extension.
Let me know if this makes sense.

Tom, How do you get the PDF into Word to be able to save it as a Word Document?
Love in Christ
In word 2016 or later, Control F12 will allow you to convert a PDF to a Microsoft Word document, after which you can save it accordingly.
I find that this works better for some PDF’s and not others, but it’s just another tool to have in your tool box.
This might be a good question for Microsoft accessibility. I rarely use Word, but I just opened a blank Word document, typed something and then did what you described, i.e. I pressed F12, I typed a file name, selected “PDF” from the format drop-down and then selected a folder and I was able to save the document as a Pdf without a problem.
I also use Office 365 with Windows 10 and Jaws 2019. As an alternative and as long as you use Windows 10, you could always print the document and select “Microsoft Print to PDF”, this will also create an accessible PDF file.
