Re: Accessibility in SumatraPDF

Mallard <mallard@...>

Hello Juan,

I can recommend keeping at least a portable version of Sumatrapdf, which comes in really, really handy if you want to save a document as txt.

The menus are accessible. If you open a document, even if you can't read it straight away, you can save it as txt (in case you need to do so), and the result is the best I've had for this purpose. Much better than Foxit, which inserta lines with page numbers, that can be bothering; better than Adobe, which I haven't used for years, but didn't work as nicely as Sumatra...

Ciao, hth,

No, it doesn't.

In the old days, when the programme was first released, someone asked
about accessibility, but the dev said he didn't know anything about
accessibility, and didn't want to get involved. He said that, since
the software is open source, whoeer wanted to delve into that, could
do so...

Sumatra pdf doesn't have a text viewer, so no text can be read.

Pity, because it also reads epubs, amongst other things.

Hovever, i found that it does a great job saving pdf files to txt.
Of all these pdf reading programme, this is the one that "ruins" the
format least of all.
