Hi Paul,

i down loaded the latest edition of the software through the link that you sent 
me and also have maximised the screen just in case.  Unfortunately, i still 
can't read the rest of the file.

The pdf attachments i have are notes and other material from a course in Law 
i'm undertaking and when i enter on the attachment the following is read out by 
jaws only,

"constitutional law for the summer of 2008"

The same is read out by jaws for the other attachments which read out criminal 
and contract law etc.

and that's all it says as the down arrow key can't go any further down the 
document.  It says nothing about accessibility etc.  

The size of the pdf attachments range in size from about 1.9 mb to about 2.2

  Hi Seoirse 



  Do you have the latest version of the adobi reader?. This is version 8.02 I 
think. I will paste below the download link just in case. Also when you opened 
up the PDF document did jaws indicate to you that the reader wanted to set some 
accessibility features in order to read the document correctly for you. What 
happens if you use your arrow keys to read this document and also, have you 
maximised the PDF document screen. Alt + spacebar followed by letter X.


  Here is the link for the current adobi reader for anyone who needs it.

  Hi everyone,


  i'm having with my pdf attachments.  When i open my pdf documents my Jaws 
software (version 8) reads maybe the first two sentences of the attachments and 
reads no more.


  Does anyone know why this may be ?


  I'd appreciate any advice....
