Re: Reading pdf files and line structure
Try setting reading settings to "left to right, top to bottom reading order". See if that helps any.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Subject: [nvda] Reading pdf files and line structure
with the accessibility of pdf files varying as it does, I tend to avoid them, but sometimes information is just not easily gained through different means, so from time to time I have to read one. Just today I discovered that with NVDA and Acrobat Reader DC, there are no meaningful line breaks presented to me as I read the contents of a pdf. For example, a line might ramble on like this:
Chapter 1 Getting Started This chapter serves as introduction ...
For an experiment, I switched to JAWS and there was presented with the correct line structure:
This chapter serves as introduction ...
Is there anything I am missing to configure in NVDA to read pdfs as expected?
All the best,
