take a while to process. You will end up with a very clean text-only

In Internet Explorer, if one presses control plus enter on a link, it opens a new window.  That's so easy.  How about in Edge?

If you ever only want a single web page to be open just go to the address bar with Al + D or F4 and type in the address where you want to go.
This will replace the currently open page with the new one.

Thanks, all, for your suggestions regarding my issue with reading multi-page documents in Adobe Acrobat DC.

 

With some further experimentation, I got the control page down command to advance pages in the document I’m working with, although I find it a bit flaky.

 

I’ll look at the settings mentioned to see if I can get something to work more consistently and reliably.

Hello there,

Hope your day is going well.
To answer your question about reading multi page doc in Acrobat Reader DC you need to do the following:
1. Open your file.
2. Once it completely opened do the following:
File > View > Read Out Loud > Read to Bottom, or you can do the keyboard command Ctrl + Shitft + B and that should read your entire document.

Hope  this helps.

Take care for now.

Ctrl+Pgdn is the keystroke to advance to the next page. This is probably a larger document, and you have your accessibility settings to load only visible pages in large documents. I know people who recommend that this not be done, that the entire document be loaded, even though this can take a little longer. You can change the setting for the current document by hitting shift+Ctrl+5, and can change the default accessibility options in the accessibility submenu off the edit menu.

The On Startup page in both Google Chrome and MS Chromium-based Edge are indistinguishable from each other.

Under Google Chrome while I can search for the home button setting I cannot then escape the completed search and use browser find to get straight to it.  

There are pluses and minuses to each "flavor" of Chromium that have been put out there, that's for sure, and there are plenty to choose from.  They're all far more similar than different when looked at from what one is generally doing in a browser on a daily basis.

moderated Re: Accessibility with the new Microsoft Edge

 

And not that such articles are not valuable, because they are, but for anyone who has been a Google Chrome browser user (or Brave or Opera, or any of several others based on Chromium) the way you access the new Chromium-based Edge is as close to identical as you can be.

So for those who fit the above category, use your mad skills from the other Chromium-based browser and you'll be flying in no time.

I don’t know about affordable, but the only software I know of for converting music into braille music is Good Feel braille music translator and convertor.

It is by Dancing Dots.  They offer payment plans, etc.

I work with someone who teaches braille music and uses this software and loves it.

This is an enquiry on behalf of a friend so my apologies if I’m not using the correct language.
