This does get a bit confusing. In PDF’s F3 is the Find Next Occurrence key.

Thanks...insert + control + f works. When I press insert plus f3 I get the virtual html features list.

I don’t know why they didn’t map Ctrl+F to JAWS Find as they have done with the browsers, but they have not done so. Hence, to do a very effective JAWS Find in a PDF document while running Acrobat Reader, use Insert+Ctrl+F, Insert+F3 to Find Next.
Hello, I’m using windows10 and Jaws2019 most recent version. I’m unable to perform a search in a PDF file. I press control f, type in some text and press enter. The only way I can get out of the search is press escape. Should I do this a different way? I tried to convert the PDF into a word doc and I couldn’t get it to work. I then highlighted the entire PDF, copied and then pasted it into a word doc. This messed it really bad. Any thoughts of what I can do
