Re: Jaws and PDF issues

I would suggest using a different PDF reader for the documents in question. The PDF reader in Chrome is working quite well for me.

Hi folks. Can anybody answer this question?


Hi Chris,


I am back to work now and am finding I am having trouble with pdf files with headers and footers. I find that while I am using the down arrow and reading the document the cursor will get stuck on the footer and the document will skip a few pagesand I will loose my spot. Likewise with the header while arrowing upwards. Have you ever come across this?


Also do you know how Jaws reacts to secured pdf’s? I opened a secured document and Jaws would not read it?


Any help will be greatly appreciated.
