In my case, the entire system becomes extremely slow to respond to
keystrokes, to the extent that it's impossible to use. Keystrokes are
processed, but there are delays of seconds at a time. Various programs
(including Outlook itself) cause the system to issue error dialogues which
state that the program is "not responding". Sometimes, the only way to deal
with this situation effectively is to resort to the power button - the worst
available response to make on any modern operating system, but when
everything else fails, there isn't a good alternative.

The system is Windows 7 x64 with Microsoft Office 2013 installed.

Re: Adobe Acrobat Pro-9 extended and reading PDF files, only one page

John J. Fioravanti, Jr.
 

That's exactly what I found; however, Brian, when using acrobat pro 9, I found an easier way.

While in the program, hit control+K, type "read" and tab over four times or so until you hear "for large documents, only read the currently visible page." This is the default. Arrow up to "read the entire document." Hit enter and you're all set. I wouldn't keep that setting all the time because every time you open a PDF file, the program goes through each page in opening it, very slowly.

Good luck, and thanks for that, Brian.

Subject: Re: Adobe Acrobat Pro-9 extended and reading PDF files, only one page

 

I recently encountered this issue with a client and here is what came back straight from the Freedom Scientific Technical support "horse's mouth," and it worked just fine to solve the issue:

This is an Adobe Reader setting that is causing this (reading only the single/visible page) to take place. If you walk through the instructions below, you can change this setting:

A. Using the Accessibility Set Up Assistant

When you launch a PDF the first time, the accessibility set up assistant opens. If the accessibility wizard has already run, do the following to open it:

1. Press ALT+E to open the Edit menu.

2. Press Y to select Accessibility submenu.

3. Press ENTER on Set Up Assistant. The first page of this five page dialog box opens. The default choice is fine, press ENTER to move to the next page.

4. On the second page you can change things if you wish, but by default it is OK. Press ENTER to move to page three.

5. On the third page you can change things if you wish, but by default it is OK. Press ENTER to move to page four.

6. On the fourth page, if you want to use the list of links, list of headings, and the JAWS find command so on to access long documents, change the radio button from

"For large documents, only read the currently visible pages"

to

"Read the entire document at once."

If you do not make this change, in long documents JAWS only sees the links and headings on the current page. Additionally, JAWS can only search the current page with the JAWS find command. If you do select read the entire document at once, it may take a few seconds longer to process large documents, but it is worth it to be able to see the links and  headings in the entire document, or to search the entire document with the JAWS find.

7. Press ENTER to move to page five of the Set Up Assistant.

8. If the check box for Reopen documents to the last viewed page is checked, you may want to uncheck this. It is a personal preference. TAB through until you reach the check box for "Display PDF documents in the web browser," and uncheck it.

9. Press ENTER to activate the Done button.

 

B. Additional changes in Adobe Reader XI preferences.

1. Press CTRL+K to open the Adobe Reader XI preferences.

2. In the Categories list on the left side of the dialog box, choose Accessibility.

3. Press TAB to move to the item, Show Portfolios in Files mode (not checked by default) - check this.

4. Press TAB to move back to the Categories list and choose Security (Enhanced).

5. Press TAB to move to Enable Protected Mode at startup (checked by default) - uncheck this.

6. Press TAB to move to the OK button, and activate it with the SPACEBAR.

 

NOTE: The option to view PDF documents in the browser is no longer found in the Preferences. You must use the Set Up Assistant to find this


Re: Jaws hesitating

Dr. Vikas Dixit
 

I also sometimes come across this type of situation, that is, while navigating through a document (no matter word or pdf), Jaws stops for a couple of seconds, and starts either itself or again scrolling up and down or left and right arrow keys. However, this happens only rarely, and I don't know the exact reason of this hap. If anyone has any idea, may share.

I'm finding several situations where Jaws hesitates as I navigate

through a document with the down arrow.



It started some time ago while I still had Win 7 64 on a desktop custom

built for DAW use.



I've just updated to Windows 10. I did not do the clean install from

media as I want to just try things out before committing to 10.



I used the clean up tool from FS.

I only had Jaws 16 at the time.

I did not remove 16 after using the clean up tool.

I downloaded and installed and am running the latest Jaws 17 64 bit version.



All my apps and data and even some settings and log in information

carried over nicely.

I just wonder if I also didn't Cary over all sorts of bugs.



It mostly happens on web pages using Firefox after the system has been

in standby or sleeping. Usually, a restart fixes it.



Just wondering if others have seen this. No need to write if you have

not had this problem.



I may do a clean install but might also take the system to a shop and

Gudrun,

Thanks for the kind words. You are in a uniquely thorny position as far as scanning goes because you're trying to work in material that is in two separate languages. OCR has gotten extremely good, even on pretty sketchy copy, for material in a single language but I don't know whether the same can be said for things in two languages. As you know from our private exchanges, I've tried scanning one of the books you refer to in both Swedish and English and neither gives satisfactory results in both languages at once.

This is an instance where you could be the avant garde for your own needs and those of others, too. I know you've given Tracker Software's PDF XChange Viewer a try, and what they provide for free is pretty remarkable, but not enough to get what you need. I do not know whether one of their paid products might work, but it would be worth getting in touch with them to ask about that. If they claim that one would, I think it would be entirely reasonable to ask them to process a single file using that software and returning the result to you so that you can actually evaluate the result before considering purchase. I can't believe that the need for bilingual OCR is frequent, but it certainly is something that's going to occur for someone other than yourself. I would be shocked if someone has not developed something that supports this, but I'd have to do the same digging as you will to determine who.

As to finding the right assistant, no matter how much we love our loved ones and they love us in return, they're generally not the best option for several reasons. This is particularly so if someone is easily frustrated with technology that doesn't function perfectly all the time. A big part of it all is dealing with the inevitable issues that arise when you are putting software layer upon software layer and expecting them all to seamlessly communicate with each other. While we've come a long way in that department, you know better than most that we're not "there yet" as far as true seamlessness goes.

These days you can pretty much configure monolingual OCR to handle most of the formatting eventualities you typically see in print. Most can be easily set up to handle columns like in a newspaper, or tables. There are still problems, though, when a table is presented in columns but with no structure surrounding the table itself. Then the software has to make a guess as to whether it's something in "newspaper columnar" format or "table row and columnar" format and that's not easy to do absent clear delimiters that suggest one versus the other.

Brian
