Getting Adobe Acrobat to Work


Gerald Levy
 

Using JAWS 2019 with Windows 10, I cannot get Adobe Acrobat to work with IE.?? When I access a PDF document in IE, I get a page with an open parent document button, but when I click on it, nothing happens.?? On the Preferences mdialog, the enable protected mode check box is unchecked.?? What other settings do I need to change to get Acrobat to work with IE??? Thanks.

Gerald,
The Adobe plug-in needs to be disabled in the internet options - add-ons section.
You probably will have to select all add-ons to find the adobe plug-in. Once disabled IE will go ahead and call the external Adobe reader.

It appears that there is noAdobe plug in listed on the IE Add-ons Manager, which explains why IE is unable to read PDF documents. In fact, there are no add-ons listed at all.?? Fortunately, Adobe Acrobat seems to work with Chrome and Firefox, so I guess I will have to use one of these browsers to read PDF documents.?? Are there any other PDF readers that work with IE that are JAWS accessible?

Gerald,
The Adobe reader works fine in IE 11 Win 10. The fact that you are getting the message about Open Parent document says the add-on is installed. It can be tricky to get the list of add-ons to display correctly. A base Win10 IE system should have upwards of 20 add-ons.
Ensure Toolbars and extensions radio button is checked.
Filter should be set to all add-ons.
This is the tricky part because after placing this selection in the combo box you must hit the space bar to actually make the selection.
Once this is done a list of about 20 add-ons should appear in the next list. On mine the Adobe add-on is first in the list. It must be set to disable to prevent Adobe from trying to open the document in the IE session and instead calling the external Adobe program.

Doug, I followed these instructions and was finally able to display all extensions, including the Adobe PDF add-on, which was enabled.?? I disabled it, and, voila, I can now read PDF documents with IE.?? Many thanks.

Hi Gerald,
I really wouldn't depend on IE for anything anymore. You'll have to switch eventually.
Your experience really will be better with Google Chrome or perhaps Firefox.
IE is not supportted anymore.
the learning curve might be a little stiff but, better to move on now.
I can't even get my IE to come up anymore. I moved on to Chrome a couple of years ago and its pretty good.

Hi Gerald,
 
I haven't followed this thread but, when I hear, Parent Document, I go to the file menu, choose, Save as, and save it as a Adobe ...file.  I don't recall the exact verbiage but, doing this saves the PDF file in Documents / My Documents folder and possibly the Downloads folder depending on where I saved to last.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
No one has more to say than the woman who says she doesn't want to talk about it.

Good morning,

You will need to change how Windows opens up PDF files. This is the way to
do that.

1 - Bring focus to any PDF file and hit your application key or shift F10
2 - Arrow up to properties and hit enter.
3 - Shift tab once to change and hit enter
4 - Tab once to the list of applications and change it to acrobat and then
tab to Ok and then tab to ok and then you are done.

If you want to set adobe to open all pdf files go to default apps, tab
across until you find 'choose default apps by file type', in here you can
set the app you want to open according to the file type. It's a long list
but if you tab through the file types until you find '.PDF' you can then set
adobe as your default program for all pdfs.

Using JAWS 2019 with Windows 10, I cannot get Adobe Acrobat to work
with IE.?? When I access a PDF document in IE, I get a page with an
open parent document button, but when I click on it, nothing
happens.?? On the Preferences mdialog, the enable protected mode
check box is unchecked.??
What other settings do I need to change to get Acrobat to work with
IE???
Thanks.

how do you bring file to focus?At 08:57 AM 5/27/2019, you wrote:

Good morning,

You will need to change how Windows opens up PDF files. This is the way to
do that.

1 - Bring focus to any PDF file and hit your application key or shift F10
2 - Arrow up to properties and hit enter.
3 - Shift tab once to change and hit enter
4 - Tab once to the list of applications and change it to acrobat and then
tab to Ok and then tab to ok and then you are done.

the microsoft doesn't know how to use acrobat to work with even their own
screne reader windows narator. I turned off protected view in adobe dc and
it reads however if people who write web pages don't tag them for
accessibility you are dead.At 04:36 AM 5/25/2019, you wrote:

Hi Gerald,
I really wouldn't depend on IE for anything anymore. You'll have to
switch eventually.
Your experience really will be better with Google Chrome or perhaps
Firefox.
IE is not supportted anymore.
the learning curve might be a little stiff but, better to move on now.
I can't even get my IE to come up anymore. I moved on to Chrome a
couple of years ago and its pretty good.

It appears that there is noAdobe plug in listed on the IE Add-ons
Manager, which explains why IE is unable to read PDF documents. In
fact, there are no add-ons listed at all.?? Fortunately, Adobe
Acrobat seems to work with Chrome and Firefox, so I guess I will have
to use one of these browsers to read PDF documents.?? Are there any
other PDF readers that work with IE that are JAWS accessible?

Gerald,
The Adobe plug-in needs to be disabled in the internet options -
add-ons section.
You probably will have to select all add-ons to find the adobe
plug-in. Once disabled IE will go ahead and call the external Adobe
reader.

Hi Richard,
 
You navigate to the PDF document and with the PDF file highlighted it is in focus.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
