Jaws gets an update, fixes major Adobe bug: other fixes too

Hi all,

Jaws has released their June 2019 update. In it, they fixed a major adobe issue in the reader product where MSAA mode would be on where it reads PDF files to you using this mode. I reported it, and was able to send a smaller file instead of the one I intended to send. This happened with every single PDF file.

In the release notes issued for this update, they talk about fixing this bug where the virtual buffer (MSAA) was not being loaded with the content, even when we tell Adobe that we’re using assistive technology.

Thank you VFO, for fixing this issue. For those who primarily use Jaws, the fix is welcome. Luckily, I was able to save the file and get a text representation, now, I can go back to reading PDF’s as intended.

There are also a bunch of other fixes between the April and June releases, and you can read them from this Freedom Scientific page for your convenience. Thanks for reading!
