Hi Justin,
It will depend on which program you read them in.
I typically convert my PDF files and read them in Notepad or Word.
Then you just search normally.
Perhaps what you are wondering is how to open a PDF in something like Adobe DC and navigate through the document.
I recall a day when PDF files were difficult in Adobe, but seems to me that now there are keyboard commands for things like find and general navigation, and hopefully someone here knows some keystrokes.
Have you tried insert + H in the program to get some keyboard commands?
HTH.

Using the find feature, and getting to where you want to in the document.

 

Being able to find chapters.

 

 

Thanks,

By accessible, do you mean just reading, or filling out a form?

For reading, you can open it in Open Book, or another OCR program, or you can open most with Acrobat DC, or Chrome and I think FireFox can read them.

You can use Jaws convenient OCR on it.

You can do that with the applications key.

Or you can use insert + space bar, and I think S is the key and P I think for page.

Thanks,
