Hi,

 

If for some reason your Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is not opening a PDF file it is because Secure enhanced mode is not Checked.

 

Here is how to get to it:

 

Pull down the Edit Menu;

 

Arrow up to Preference; and press Enter;

 

Arrow down to Security (Enhanced Mode);

 

Tab once and press the spacebar if the checkbox is not check;

 

Tab to OK and try again to Open the file by Closing the Reader and re-Opening the file.

 

Also under Accessibility you should be using the default settings.

Could you please instruct me step-by-step how to change those preferences?

Greetings:

 

I don’t understand how you can paste something into Word from Acrobat Reader which JAWS is not detecting. It is highly possible that Acrobat Reader is displaying the PDF in protected view. This is a setting you can change in the Acrobat Reader preferences.

 

Kindly,

 

Curtis Chong

I have the latest JAWS, but it is not doing the automatic OCR, because I don’t think that the document is an OCR image, and that is what I find it strange that JAWS is not reading it. What I did was that |I selected and pasted the document to MS Word, and then I was able to read it. Any idea what should I do to make JAWS recognize it?

 

Best regards,

Gezim

Assuming that you are running a recent version of Jaws and are using Adobe Reader to open the PDF file, Jaws will perform an automatic OCR and attempt to read the context of the document to you.

 

I know that Jaws 2021 and 2022 will do the automatic OCR.  I am not certain how far back you need to go when this feature was built into the program.

 

I had this problem in the past and FS had me perform a Jaws repair and the problem was resolved. Jaws recognizes  that the PDF is a scanned image and attempts to perform an OCR to read the context of the image to you.

 

Good luck,

Mario

JAWS should have prompted you to OCR the document. If it did not, something else is going on.

Hi list,

 

I opened an Adobe Acrobat Reader DC document, and JAWS says blank. How can I make JAWS recognize it?
