Re: alert: empty document. message in adobe

Certain pdf files are, simply put, more immage based and need to be scaned, or 
Jaws won't read them. I encounter them a lot as an attorney with documents 
received from the government. John Fioravanti

  Strange. I work with protected PDFs without a hitch.

  Hello,

  OK, I am not sure how to explain this but sometimes when individuals create a 
PDF document they can copyright protect it.  I received a document once that my 
children could see on the screen but JAWS would not read.  When I contacted the 
creator of the document, they informed me that it was protected.  They sent me 
another file with the protection removed, and JAWS then read it just fine.  I 
do not know why this occurred but this was my experience.  

  Hope that made sense,
  Mark

    has anyone had this message come up in adobe when loading a pdf before? I 
just had a situation where a document loaded, and it said processing page x of 
y, and then said alert empty document. there hhas to have been text there... is 
this a JAWS issue? I am using JAWS 9 and adobe 8.
