  Samara,

  First, make sure you have the accessible version of the latest release of 
Adobe Reader, which I think is now up to 9. If the PDF document is a text file, 
this program will take you through the steps for making it accessible. From 
your message, it sounds as though you're more or less up to date in this regard.

  However, when Adobe goes through the conversion process and reports something 
like, "Empty document," it suggests you have an image file. In that case, you 
will need to perform OCR, optical character recognition, on it. If you have a 
Kurzweil 1000 or similar reading device, it will be able to do this task for 
you. Otherwise, you will need to obtain an OCR application such as OmniPage or 
others that have been recommended on this and other lists.

  Sounds like you need to run OCR on the document.

  Maybe Open Book or Omnipage Pro.

  Hi, I'm trying to download some forms from the America's Got Talent site, and 
I know there are things written on the forms, because it'll say "processing 
page 9 of whatever", but when it's done, stupid jaws just keeps saying "alert, 
empty document." I know the damn thing isn't empty and I need these forms. Any 
ideas?
