Robby;

What site are you downloading from?

  Hi Marissa:

  Yes the document is loaded when I went to the Read Aloud menu.  It's very 
possible that the document is not formatted correctly.  Nothing surprises me 
anymore with us trying to keep up with technology.  Lastly, I'll check and see 
if there's a lock on the document.  Thanks.

    Hi Robby,
    I wonder what could be causing that. I think that could mean either one of 
two things. The first is that the document may be formatted incorrectly by 
whoever loaded into adobe not you. But the person who created it. The second 
thing is this is probably a stupid question, but is the document loaded when 
you try the read aloud menu? I've found that when the document you want to read 
is not loaded, the options in the read aloud menu become unavailable. Also, is 
it possible that the document in adobe needs an unlock code? Some of them do. I 
hope that I've been of some assistance. Please let me know how it works out!

    Marissa

      Hi Marissa:

      Thanks for your suggestions.  I already have Adobe 7 but I'm still 
encountering this problem.  When I went to the Read Aloud submenu, all of them 
were unavaible.  When JAWS tries to read it, it says something like "protection 
failure" or something like that and it only downloads to 29%.  Thanks.

        Hi Robby,

        Hmm, that is strange. You can't download the e-book? WHen I encounter 
this, I usually use the insert key plus the letter B as in boy to let Jaws read 
me what is on the screen. I don't know if that will help you, but I thought I'd 
offer my suggestion. Also, if you have trouble reading the e-book., you can 
download adobe acrobat 7 from www.adobe.com. It's free and contains a read 
aloud submenu under the view text in adobe 7. I have it on my computer and it 
works pretty well. Hope I've been of some help.

        Marissa

          Hi Listers:

          I recently purchased an ebook from the Randomhouse site and all it 
shows is a bunch of questions marks according to JAWS.  I have done all of the 
steps that Random House says to do, but it's still doing the same thing and not 
downloading properly.

          Has anyone else had this problem and if so, how did you fix it?  
Thanks.
