Yes, and if you go to the end of the pdf before you issue the CONTROL plus
SHIFT plus N command, that will be the total number of pages.

Mike, just to make a point (and distinction), Kevin was asking to know
the (total) number of pages in a PDF. Brian's suggestion only reports
what page number the reader is on.

 Another way:

I do not know of a JAWS keyboard shortcut to announce page numbers, but
I do have a workaround you can use.
If you issue the, Go To Page Number, command, CTRL + SHIFT + N, the
number shown in the edit box when the dialog opens, and on which you
have focus, is
the current page number in the PDF document itself.  Hitting Escape
without doing anything leaves you exactly where you were, and you have
your page number.

In addition to Brian's work around, you could also turn on the JAWS
cursor to read a line of 1/52, 2/52, 3/52, or whatever number of pages
are in the PDF, reviewing line by line up towards the top of the screen
(in other words, above the top of the document).

Stay safe & take care.  Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "Close Enough!"

when the PDF is first opened, it's number of pages needs to be prepared.
before pressing the ok button, it should mentioned towards the top of
the Adobe Reader window. I'm able to use the JAWS cursor to find this
information. if after the process is finished, using the JAWS cursor,
there is a line under the menubar that states something like 1/total
number of pages.

I don't know of any other way. maybe someone else can enlighten us.

Hello, I’m using the most recent versions of windows10 and Jaws2021. I
use Adoeby Acrobat reader. Is there a way to tell the number of pages in
a PDF file? Is there a way to determine if the page is portrait or
landscape? Thanks, Kevin
