Your welcome. I agree with you, yes, Miso-san, the doc is essentially a
picture unless it is in a text format.

Jordan, thanks for your explanation; I've had this happen, too, and it's so
frustrating!

Mizo, your teacher needs to give you a version of the PDF JAWS can read. The
reason JAWS says "graphic" is because the document has been scanned as a
picture, so JAWS just sees a picture, and it can't read pictures.

It can either say "empty document" or "no links", the latter being if the
doc is a text file and not an image.

When you open the PDF, what does JAWS say?

Thank you all for who replied.
CTRL + shift N did open the go to page dialogue but it seems like JAWS is
only recognizing the pdf as graphic... also the pdf document is read
protected so RoboBraille is not letting me convert using their system.

Does anyone know how to make the document unprotected?

Thanks again.
