Re: Cannot read PDF documents with NVDA

Hi Afrim,
If possible, and if it does not infringe on confidentiality or
copyright (do ensure that), then, it would be really helpful if you
could share a sample file as one of those PDFs you receive from your
professors. Practical examination and analysis of those PDF files by
members may result in more accurate suggestions.
Thanks.

Hello everyone,
I have seriously started using NVDA, and this time is more serious than
other times, because I have upgraded to windows 10, and it works very
well,
and I do mean very very well. One of my biggest issues I'm currently
facing
is reading pdf documents with NVDA. On the adobe reader, or adobe acrobat
reader, NVDA reads absolutely nothing. I have to work everyday with those
types of documents because my university professors provide me with
lectures
or books in pdf format, but I cannot access them.
So, could somebody help me with this problem because it is very important
to
me. Every answer is appreciated.
sincerely,

Re: Cannot read PDF documents with NVDA

Well firstly we need to know if the files are proper text and not as some instruction manuals seem to be, some form of image of pages of a printed source.

Obviously in that case somebody needs to fix the format. Normally you can test this by exporting the text and seeing if there is any.
assuming there is then several things come to mind. I do not know about Windows 10, but sometimes one has to look in the config area of adobe reader and turn off any protection items or security etc, to be able to read them.

Obviously also we have got to be sure that if these are complex documents with changes in columns and graphics etc, that the get tagged when created. This is a process few seem to do and even less understand. I know I don't understand how its done, but if its not done and reading order changes in a document, then it tends to go into gobbledegook. I really would advise if you can to suggest the texts are sent to you in a known doc format so that they can be manipulated easier.
I had a very odd problem the other day while working on the UK elections pdf, where the first page was fine, but all subsequent pages were just jumbled up, as if the tagging had failed after the first page.

I know Nvaccess has put a lot of effort into getting pdf files to work well but sadly those making such files need to play their part or its a total waste of time.

Its not an official nvda addon but it works, another unofficial addon

This handles glulx and a few other interpriters this one is not official

The only thing one needs to do with winfrotz is to start the program
first before opening a game with glulx this is fine.
Sadly google translate will not work by addon but you should still be
able to translate webpages, there is a user limit on it to.

Re: Query colour of current text in web browser?

Jacob Kruger
 

Brian, are you using object navigation, document review, or screen review?

In object navigation/review, it also reports no formatting to me, but, with either document review - think that's the default for web pages - or screen review, it does - just not colour information in IE.

Stay well

The next question is whether other screen-readers see formatting information in Chrome.  This may be a failing in Chrome and have nothing to do with the screen-reader.  I may check that later.

I haven't tested enough to say anything definite.  but on the one page I tested with Firefox, I saw formatting information.  On the page I tested with Chrome, I didn't.  Is this one more instance of Chrome not implementing accessibility as it should?

I don't know why you get that response.  I tried it before I sent my message.  What browser are you using?  I don't see why that would matter but I'm asking anyway.  Where were you on the web page when you issued the command?  Again, if you are somewhere on the page, and not in something like the address bar, I would expect the command to work.

Re: Query colour of current text in web browser?

I know, in word, for example, it will include colour info in formatting string, but, doesn't seem to happen in internet explorer - just tested, and it does in firefox, but, I, unfortunately, at times use both for testing things.

Either way, now that just tried it out in both, seems like it's an issue with IE, so, will bear that in mind before checking on any dynamic style changes, etc.
