Re: NVDA and reading PDF files, whether in Adobe Reader DC or Edge (or another reader of your choosing)

I have found that something Adobe does does make the programme appear unresponsive while it is processing. This is at its worst when Acrobat is performing OCR, where it seems to use resources in such a way that the computer appears to lock up while the processing is happening. I now use Abbyy and it’s better.
If you change the setting in Adobe to show single page or something like that, it will open a lot faster, but then some key features will simply not work, so I prefer not to do this.
I generally don’t use Adobe at all unless I have to fill something out, now. I just convert to another format that imo is better to read. For me, .txt is fine most of the time actually, especially as I dump stuff into my old braille notetaker to avoid having to listen to speech.

I suspect that I have either forgotten something simple or something on my machine has gone wack-a-doodle that I need to fix.

It is much easier to be critical than to be correct.
