    Hi. This is my first time on your blog. I am blind and use screen readers. I’ve been using Adobe Reader for a few years with mixed results. I am currently taking a college-level biology class. Both my textbook and lab manual are on flash drives in .pdf format. For the most part I’ve had little trouble accessing my textbook. Most of the text reads just fine with both of my screen readers. However, on each page there are a bunch of extraneous characters that sometimes get in my way, and I have difficulty following the actual content of the chapter. I’ve tried changing the settings around, but these characters are still present. I’ve also tried the feature that converts these files to text with no avail. My second problem is that whenever I try to read my lab manual with either of my screen readers, I only get one or two sentences of the introductory remarks repeated over and over. The odd thing here is that I had a fully-sighted skills tutor look at the files and he says the correct text does appear onscreen. The third problem I have is that whenever I try to open up Adobe Reader 9.3 with the Enter key, Windows Media Center opens instead. I have figured out a way around this though. If I go into my Applications menu and arrow down to the choice that says Open with…, Adobe 9.3 is the first choice and I just hit Enter on that. Thank you for your time, and sorry for the long-winded comment. I am going to attend a webinar in a couple weeks and see if anybody can help me out there.

    Is it possible to use Acrobat Pro reading order to go between pages? I want to have reading order 1 through 3 order from page one, 4 and 5 on page 2 and back to page one for reading order 6 and 7.
