  • I reported the bug to Adobe and received a response from an engineer that could not recreate the problem.

    I only had the problem at the first use. Now, I cannot cause it to happen.

    There are some pdf documents that may not be created correctly for Read Aloud.

    Here is a link to Adobe. http://www.adobe.com/accessibility/products/acrobat/overview.html

    To use the Adobe Read Aloud do this:

    1. Started Narrator

    2. Opened a pdf file in Reader

    3. Press Shift+Ctrl+Y

    Again, post back if you need more assistance.

  • Hi,

    It seems that Adobe Reader 10 has it's own read aloud function.

    Turn off the Windows read aloud narrator. That seems to allow the reader 10 read aloud to work without crashing. But, then you have to restart the Windows narrator for any other activity. I tested it and it crashed the first time. Now it works, but slowly on the word recognition.

    Report it as a bug with Adobe. https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform

    Open a document with Adobe Reader 10.

    Use the shift + control + Y keys to activate the narrator. (it is also under the view menu item)

    Use the keyboard to navigate the document.

     

    Were you able to get the narrator working?

    You could uninstall Reader 10 and try reader 9. Get it here. http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/
