Re: Reading PDFs in Edge Seemingly Broken


Ron, I have to do the same thing on Edge. If I want to read PDF files I thought it was just me. Confirmed with the latest build of NVDA

Hi Sascha,


I am not having difficulty reading PDF documents in Edge. However, I am

having trouble with the shortcut keys. Alt + S for settings alt + H for

help and so on. None of them seem to work.  I have to use the tab key to

access the tool bar to get at any of these items.  I wonder if anyone

else is having this difficulty.
