Re: No line breaks when reading pdf file in Adobe Reader with NVDA

Hmm, I have to redefine my statements.
Viewing a PDF file with Adobe Acrobat reader always has the behavior and sympthoms Felix mentioned. Linebreaks are skipped, Text is all in a row.
On the systems I thought it was working for me Google Chrome was my default viewer for PDF files.
Sorry for the confusion, seems viewing of PDF's is broken in NVDA.

Regards,
Ralf

Felix,
Even if it doesn't help you right now, I just found that I can reproduce it on one of my company laptops. For all other of my machines NVDA reads it correctly.
Lemme try to find the difference in their setup...

Best,
Ralf

Hello,
coming back to a subject which wasn't on my radar for some time, could someone please get me up to date on whether a solution to NVDA's broken pdf support has since emerged? To recap, no matter how I configure Adobe Reader, NVDA tends to render pdf contents without any line breaks, making anything but the most linear prose hard to follow.
JAWS is not so affected.
Best,
Felix
