moderated Re: adobe acrobat reader dc and jaws issues
And just to add to this, in the latest version of Jaws this is no longer necessary, but if you use Jaws 2018 or an earlier version of Jaws 2019 you may have to do this.

1. Open Adobe Reader.
2. Press ALT plus K for Preferences.
3. Arrow down to Security (Enhanced, (not just Security)
4. TAB to Enable Protected Mode at startup, and make sure it is unchecked.
5. Answer “Yes” to the prompt which warns you that, Disabling Protected Mode requires you to restart Adobe Reader.
6. TAB to, Enable Enhanced Security, and make sure this is also unchecked.
7. TAB to the OK button, and press it.
8. Restart Adobe Reader.
Now you should be able to see the content of PDF files in Adobe Reader.
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.
