Re: jaws5 works with Adobe 6

Probably most of us go for a work-around because we need the material now,
not some time into the amorphous future. I am not unappreciative of the
protest and revolutionary work done by those with the time to do it and the
general improvement such actions ultimately bring but some of us have a job
to get done in the very tangible present here-and-now.

So please do keep up the good and just fight on behalf of us poor mortal
sinners.

I am probably going to start a fire storm with my suggestion but here goes
anyway...
When you experience problems that can be traced to the source document (not
Jaws), why do you look for a work around.  Why don't you address the
situation with the webmaster of the site or the creator of the document/file
or whatever.  It seems to me that if we continue to accept less than
adequate products we will never achieve true accessibility

So, what you were saying is that if you try to read pdfs in internet
explorer, you had a lot of trouble, now thogh, you don't because they are
opening in acrobat reader.  I achieve the same thing with a right click and
a save target as because unchecking the box made no difference in link
behavior for me and many others so I'm happy for you.

Dale, I have also had a lot of trouble with .PDF files and I also receive
and have to send a lot of them. My old computer running Win98 SE, JFW 3.5,
Acrobat Reader 4 and the accessibility patch  often, surprisingly, seemed to
access them reasonably OK.  but in recent times, I've had continuous
problems with later versions of Windows, JAW's and Acrobat Reader.  In
short, they were all but entirely inaccessible, even with XP Home, JFW5 and
Acrobat Reader 6.

But now, after following Tonia's advice on the JFW list, and unchecking the
box in Acrobat reader 6's  preferences which says something like "run
Acrobat in Browser," I've had no problems at all.  Thanks Tonia!    Acrobat
Reader 6 and JFW 5.0 runs a treat! *happy smiles*
