You can find out the number of pages in a PDF document, among other metadata, by going to the document’s Properties.
Once you are in the document, press control d, and you will then have a number of tabs to tab through. To read the info in these tabs, you need to either use the Jaws cursor or virtualize the window using Jaws + alt + w. Unfortunately, I don’t remember which of these tabs the page number is in, so I can only point you in the general direction of the answer.
Here is the Adobe page on properties and metadata, which doesn’t mention keyboard commands, of course

Re: reading pdfs
As an experiment I paste a PDF document into word and it was 25 pages in length. How can I determine how many pages is the original document when I open it in Adobe? Also, how do you open the PDF file in word?

No, I am saying the opposite. If you just paste the text from the pdf into Word, you are not getting the benefit of Word's conversion process. So try opening the pdf in Word, and look at what you get versus pasting the text into Word, and looking at what you get with that method. Try them both.
So you are saying to copy and paste it in to word, rather than just using word to open the file?
I believe it will convert more normally if you use Word to convert the file.
Is there any difference in copying and pasting from a pdf, and activating the context menu on a pdf and selecting Open with…, then use Word to open the document, or does it convert the same.
If "Read entire document is set, it will save the entire document.
Will that save the entire document, or just the current page?
Thanks for this tip, I’ve never thought of doing it this way.
Here's how I do it:
1. open the pdf doc.
2. then use control A to copy entire document.
3. Use the copy command (ctrl C) to copy to clipboard.
4. Open MS Word andcopy the doc. to your new document
5. Save doc. with new name
6. Breath sigh of relief because task is fini!!!!

Could someone please recall me how to save a PDF as a Word document? I remember one had to select and paste text into a blank Word document, but I don’t remember the keystroke to save it as such.
As Kestrell and others have pointed out, you can run into various problems with PDF's. For best results generally, use Adobe Acrobat Reader rather than one of the browser PDF readers. And you can read about the vvarious issues encountered and how to deal with them in Chapter 10 of my book.
