Hi:
If you are using Adobe Acrobat Reader, have you tried changing some of
the settings in your preferences menu?
I forget what needs to be set, but there are several of them which
pertain to Screen Reader accessibility.
I am using Adobe Acrobat Reader version 15 and in my case, if I open a
PDF file, Acrobat Reader detects that I am using a screen reader as
sonn as it loads.

Most of these I've tried with the current ocr add on end up as Klingon!

However, its a great pity more of the ocrs do not allow one to open
pdfs
easily and ocr them.

Hi Afrim:
Sometimes a PDF document is a picture of the text rather than the text
itself, so you will have to do OCR on it to make it read.
You can try the OCR ad-on, or if you have Kurzweil 1000, you can open
the document in Kurzweil 1000 and it will give you a text
representation of the document.

Hello everyone,
I have seriously started using NVDA, and this time is more serious
than
other times, because I have upgraded to windows 10, and it works very
well,
and I do mean very very well. One of my biggest issues I'm currently
facing
is reading pdf documents with NVDA. On the adobe reader, or adobe
acrobat
reader, NVDA reads absolutely nothing. I have to work everyday with
those
types of documents because my university professors provide me with
lectures
or books in pdf format, but I cannot access them.
So, could somebody help me with this problem because it is very
important

to
me. Every answer is appreciated.
sincerely,
Afrim
