nvda doesn't recognize tables in a pdf while in adobe reader

Alexandre Alves Toco

Hi, maybe the title is a little confusing.

I have a pdf file with tables.

If I open it in adobe, nvda reads as if it doesn’t have tables.

But when I open the same pdf in word 2016, the tables are there and I can navigate them using nvda.

Hi Arlene,


Try using Adobe reader. I know at one point, Edge was quite good with PDF files, although maybe some work better than others.

Hi list: Arlene here.  How does one read PDF files using edge?  I tried to read a vollenteer application form.when I opened the attachment it went to edge.  When I tried to read the application All I got was blank blank. I know there are words there.  It said pages one of two and all I hear is blank.  I end up on Microsoft edge. How do I read this file.  I want to submit my answers that I had gone over with a job coach. Thanks.I hope this was clear.
