Hi Marvin,

There is a security setting in Adobe Reader that you need to disable. Go to Adobe preferences by pressing CTRL + K. In the list of preferences, look for "Security, (enhanced)". Tab to where it says "enable enhanced Security" and uncheck it. You can use first letter navigation in this list, so press "S" till you get to "Security (Enhanced). Try that and if it doesn't work, there is also a setting to "Enable protected mode at startup" in the Security (Enhanced) preference. Try unchecking this as well. I can't recall if both settings need to be unchecked , and I am on my Mac at the moment so can't check.

Hope this helps

I thought I would try adobe acrobat reader dc, latest version. My adobe acrobat pro English is a few years old, version 5.5., but when I try to load a pdf, and then select that and load, it goes into like a web based or cloud, and jaws just sees it as blank. If I try to do a insert o, d for document, says ocr failed. So not sure why. Why is that, and not reading it that great and do have the google chrome extension. Maybe ray, can help. This is weird.
Anyone had this issue with adobe acrobat reader dc, current free version and got it from the official adobe site.
