I presume you've tried to right click on the link first, to see if you can save

  Subject: Halting a PDF Accessibility Conversion

  Hi. A website links to a PDF file I need to forward to someone. When I click 
on the link, I am immediately given the dialog for making a PDF file accessible 
to a screenreader. I can find no way to download the document to my system, nor 
can I interrupt the accessibility process. When I select "cancel," a message 
appears: "Alert: Document unavailable." (As an aside, when I allow the process 
to go forward, it never finishes.)

  How can I suspend accessibility conversion so that the file is on my screen, 
even though I might not be able to read it with JAWS, so that I can right-click 
on it and locate the "send" option?
