I recommend QRead. Not a huge fan of blindness-specific software but this one is very good. For one thing it doesn't take forever to parse longer PDF files. Definitely worth the $30 in my opinion: https://q-continuum.net/qread/

While I am able to bring it back where I need to when it jumps, I remain quite worried. That I might miss some vital info or internalize it wrongly if I fail to notice the jump. Does anyone else face this? How do you get around it? Converting every pdf into word is not very viable.. and can muff up footnotes. Copy pasting it into word makes a 10 page pdf a 30 page word doc. And makes quick reading very hard. So what can one do?
