Document Viewing with Screen reader

Post by Prasanna » Tue Sep 29, 2020 1:25 pm

Hi

Im using GdPicture .net COM interface to view the tagged pdf document and using Jaws screen reader. Screen reader never reads the viewing content. I want make the document viewer is accessible. I found GdPicture supports accessiblity through this link
https://www.gdpicture.com/blog/pdf-acce ... ty-pdf-ua/

Any preference or settings are required to make viewer accessible by Jaws.

Thanks

Prasanna

Hello Prasanna,

Issues concerning the COM with another tool is really heard to correct from our side.
Could you tell me the error message you get? Feel free to send me a minimalistic sample of your code to let take a look at.

If I understood well, you're trying to use GdPicture methods/viewer on your documents and use Jaws to have the speech/braille functionality, right?

Best regards,
Fabio

It sounds like it to me, at least.
And to be sure, is the .pdf in English? And is there a specific font that's used, or something unstandardised that could mess with the document's compatibility?

Hi Fabio and JasJ21,

Im using sample application[mfc_TestPdfViewer] provided in the software. Loaded a pdf file in English font.

Your understanding is correct, Pdf is loaded on Pdf Viewer application and Jaws is running with speech functionality.

No error message is shown, but Jaws is not able to read the pdf content.

I want make the document viewer is accessible. Please suggest me a way to make accessible.

Thanks
