Re: Reading PDF files with NVDA using acrobat? Or a web browser?

I use qRead, as someone else mentioned below. It is not free but works with PDFs, epubs and a couple of other formats, and I like it because it loads them really, really fast, even if they are large, which isn't really the case with Adobe. I also have Adobe pro on this machine and I really like it; the oCR feature is great. Again though, it's slow as can be, even on my new Windows 10 machine, so not always a nice solution.
I tested Adobe Acrobat DC on a work machine running Windows 10 and it works pretty well with JAWS, at least. I can't speak for its funcationality with nVDA (which I myself just started using), and there's the caveat about speed I mentioned earlier, which never seems something Adobe has been interested in improving upon.

Subject: [nvda] Reading PDF files with NVDA using acrobat? Or a web browser?
I am coming from an old windows XP machine where I used an old version of Adobe acrobat with good success on many PDF files. It let me navigate tables, access links, read continuously if I wanted to, page through the document, etc. i’m going to get a new Windows 10 machine, and I’m going to put NVDA on it and of course it will have narrator. I want to know which method work the best for reading PDF files. I understand they will open in edge if you want. And I assume the Adobe DC acrobat reader or whatever it’s called is also accessible. I gather the older readers are no longer supported. Anyway, I’m looking for something that will give me the best possible experience with the least possible hassle.
