ah, most of the time that's all you will get is one page, until you use the correct down page hotkey "control and page down" when you get the words "blank page" when you open a .pdf document, that means that its an picture created page instead of a text created one and jaws don't read pictures, so you need to run the thing through an OCR application to read it. there you go, elf Moderator, Blind Access Help Owner: Alacorn Computer Enterprises Specialists in customized computers and peripherals - own the might and majesty of a Alacorn! www.alacorncomputer.com proprietor, The Grab Bag, for blind computer users and programmers http://grabbag.alacorncomputer.com ----- Original Message ----- From: Donald Wardlow To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Tuesday, March 15, 2011 3:49 PM Subject: Re: Adobe Reader I don’t know about Roger, but I have a bad time getting JAWS to read any Adobe PDF files. About half the time it reads, half it doesn’t read. Sometimes when it does read, I get one page and that’s it. I pass on PDF’s as far as I can.

I've not use the read out loud feature because I thought it was too robotics.

Is there some setting that I could change, or should I update to 2011?
