Copy text through speech history?
Can you elaborate on how to do so?

Only problems in Chrome are:
A. Copying text directly is not possible. You have to do it through speech history.
B. More importantly, you cannot navigate the document in para-wise form. Either you must go line by line or say all. The paras are not cleanly presented, as they are in Adobe.

But still better than Adobe.

Hi,

The best reading experience for PDF files is in Chrome I believe.

All the best

Hi, Rahul. Instead of reading the pdf in Word, Press CONTROL A to
select all, copy all the text into Notepad, and try reading it as text.

Hi. I open PDFs in Adobe Reader. JAWS sometimes jumps around of its
own accord in pdfs, especially when transitioning from one page to
another. and has to be redirected. Even jaws 2020. While I am able to
bring it back where I need to when it jumps, I remain quite worried.
That I might miss some vital info or internalize it wrongly if I fail
to notice the jump. Does anyone else face this? How do you get around
it? Converting every pdf into word is not very viable.. and can muff
up footnotes. Copy pasting it into word makes a 10 page pdf a 30 page
word doc. And makes quick reading very hard. So what can one do?
