I need help with a PDF file that is an image, the "Read Out Loud' option does not work, please help!

You mean an image such as a scanned document?
If that is the case, the file doesn't contain any text for Reader Out Loud to read. In order to fix that, you would need an application such as Adobe Acrobat that does Optical Character Recognition to convert the images to actual text.
You can also try to export the file as a Word document or something else using ExportPDF which I believe offers OCR and is cheaper than Acrobat.

  • OS X Mountain lion code does NOT work - Please help

    I bought my 2012 Macbook pro June 21 2012. I qualify for the free OS X Mountain lion upgrade. I got my emails, one with the PDF file, one with the password to it. I open up the red PDF file, enter my password and it does NOT work. I took my password to the Mac App store, clicked Quick Link, Redeem, placed my code in and it STILL DOES NOT work. PLEASE HELP!!! I need the new OS, plus Im supposed to get it for free! Its not fair how they sent me a bad code / improper instructions on how to redeem it.

  • Maverick update now my login screen does not work please help.

    Hello hope you can help.  I have a 24 inch Mid 2007 Intel iMac.  It has been great until now.  I recently did the Maverick update and now my login screen does not work.  When I wake the computer up the screen appars with my picture icon.  When I click on it nothing happens.  If I click on it a second or third time the beach ball appears and nothing happens.  I have to shut the unit down with the power button and when the unit powers back up everything works normally.  Are there any suggestions out there?  I have updated the software without resolution. Is this computer too old?   Do I have to buy a new one?
    Thank you

    Your iMac can support Mavericks according to the requirements > OS X Mavericks: System Requirements
    Try a Safe Mode boot. That deletes some system caches that may help.
    Startup your Mac in Safe Mode
    A Safe Mode boot takes much longer than a normal boot so be patient.
    Once you are in Safe Mode, click Restart from the Apple () menu.
    See if there's an improvement for the login screen.

  • My home button now reads "homeButton.label;" and does not work. Help. thanks...

    turned on my computer, looked up and saw this " homeButton.label;" on my home button.
    I cannot get rid of it in Tools etc and it does not work as a command. I press it to go home, in this case google, but it does nothing. At the bottom left of the page it simply says "Done".
    I am at a loss to explain it.

    Do you have that problem when running in the Firefox SafeMode?

  • My iPhone got stolen and FindMyiPhone does not work PLEASE HELP!

    Hello there.
    This is my first post and I got a question.
    Here's my story
    My iPhone 3GS got stolen this week and I had "FindmyiPhone" (iOS 5.0.1) configured, but when I try to locate my iPhone it will show up as "offline".
    I've once heared you can trace your iPhone by an EMEI or UPC number or something like that.
    Do you guys know more about that so I can trace down my iPhone and can show it the police?
    Kind regards,

    I just got my macbook pro stolen last night. the theive opened it and I got the email from findmyiphone. I can see which house it is at, but the thing is cops can't help. Im still watching it on my iphone waiting for them to ope it again so I can see its location. But Im already ****** as $%#% because 911 told me that they cant keep following a missing laptop.
    so that was my story, right now my macbook is showing as red also. But keep watching it because they have to turn it on eventually and as long as you check email me when found on icloud.com then you will get an email. Or you can also keep watching on your computer.
    So again go on icloud.com and sign in with the itunes account/email that you use on your iphone, you'll see the find my iPhone option there!

    Try this first - Reset the iPad by holding down on the Sleep and Home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons. (This is equivalent to rebooting your computer.)
    Or this - Delete the account in Mail and then set it up again. Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Accounts   Tap on the Account, then on the red button that says Remove Account.

    First, download the latest Synaptics driver installer on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder.
    Next, open windows Control Panel, open Programs and Features, right click the entry 'Synaptics Pointing Device Driver' and select Uninstall.
    When this has completed, restart the notebook.
    When windows has fully reloaded, open your Downloads folder, right click the Synaptics installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation.  When this has completed, restart the notebook again.
    You may now need to enable scrolling again - this is described under the sub-heading 'Adjust horizontal and vertical scrolling' on This Document.

  • My iPhone won't charge and the sleep button does not work, Please Help!

    I woke up this morning and my iphone was dead. I have been using the assisted touch setting because one day for no particular reason my sleep button stopped working, so I can't even try a hard reset now.  The phone never had a bad drop and the only way it could be water damaged is from being in a steamy bathroom. If anyone has a suggestion as to how to get my phone to work again, Please leave a suggestion!!
    Thank you

    It could be that your button has justy gone out.  You may try getting compressed air to blow out any dust in there.  If that doesn't work, you may have to get your button and ribbon replaced.

  • Update Firefox to version 17 (the newest version) - Green button link does not work, please help

    I currently have Firefox version 16.0.2 installed on my laptop with Windows 7.
    Every time I attempt to go to the update site (http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/) and click on the green update button, I am sent to the 'Thank you' page, and no download begins.
    After that page, it attempts to redirect, I am assuming to the download; URL is https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-17.0.1&os=win&lang=en-US
    I receive the following error: Unable to connect - Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at download.mozilla.org.
    Please let me know how I can update my Firefox to the latest version.
    Many thanks.

  • I have created PDF from hardcopy by using my scanner. After I run OCR option for my PDF by using Acrobat Pro 9. But "Text-to-speech" functionality of the PDF says that an error message comes up that says the page is empty when I turns on the read out loud

    I have created PDF from hardcopy by using my scanner. After I run OCR option for my PDF by using Acrobat Pro 9. But "Text-to-speech" functionality of the PDF says that an error message comes up that says the page is empty when I turns on the read out loud option in Acrobat. Kindly help me to sortout this problems?

    So I tried generating the same PDFs on two other computers that have Acrobat 9 Pro.  Results were reproduced.  The verdict is:
    - complex PDF files (that is, containing cross-references, tables of contents, and bookmarks) generated by Acrobat 9.x Pro are roughly 2-5x larger than the identical file generated with Acrobat 8.x Pro.
    - different PDF conversion settings make a negligable difference (less than 10% rather than 70-80%).
    - using the "Reduce File Size" or "Optimize PDF" option cuts the file size roughly in half, almost always resulting in a "image downsampling mask" warning message, which requires acknowledgement (that is a problem for batch processing or automation).
    - adding an Acrobat watermark to the file cuts the file size roughly in half.
    - just using Save As to another filename has no effect on file size.
    - generating the PDF in Acrobat 9 with links but no PDF bookmarks still results in the inflated file size.
    - generating the PDF in Acrobat 9 without any links or bookmarks results in approximately the same file size as the Acrobat 8 PDF with full links and bookmarks.
    It appears that Acrobat 9's manner of adding links is what's bloating  the files, and in my case it's probably not related to images or image resolution/print quality.  It's a shame, because Acrobat 9 seems to have made some  improvements to the Review Tracker interface, and a few other bells and  whistles which I haven't really gotten around to exporing yet.  But  unless I find a way to keep my links and the PDF file sizes comparable to what I was  getting with Acrobat 8 Pro, it looks like I'm going to stay with Acrobat 8.
