Subject: [BCAB] JAWS and Adobe Acrobat


Whilst trying to view document properties within Adobe Acrobat, I am unable 
to read the content of a table which appears within the dialog box.

I can switch between tabs, read the document title, author, keywords etc. 
What I am unable to read is the information on file size, what software 
created the pdf, and if it is tagged and using fast web view etc.  When 
tabbing around with JAWS it simply skips past this information.

However, I am able to view all this information on a Mac with Adobe Reader 
and voiceover.  Is there a keystroke or cursor mode I need to use to allow 
me to read this content with JAWS?
