I have not be able to use the Read Out Loud function of Adobe Reader since I got Vista. I have recently written a book and I want others to be able listen to the book in PDF format but they cannot. A good friend of my sister is legally blind and wanted to know if I had an audio version for her so I asked her if she had Adobe Reader and she said she did. So I then asked if she had MS Vista OS but she is not sure. If she does she and other who have Vista and any version of Adobe Readerwill not be able to use the Read Out Loud function as far as I know. Any ideas as what the issue can be? I have had Vista tell me it was some kind of security violation and I tried to exempt it but Vista would not let me. Here is the error output from today "Faulting application AcroRd32.exe, version 126.96.36.199, time stamp 0x4c1d77af, faulting module lhcom02W.dll, version 188.8.131.52, time stamp 0x3cfc8155, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x00018818, process id 0xeac, application start time 0x01cb4798dc61d030." I have 184.108.40.206 but previous version still did not work either. I was hoping the latest update would have worked. signed: Frustrated and Disappointed in Indiana
By changing my preferences in Adobe Reader (Edit/Preferences/ Reading) from the default, it seemed to kick the function into action! The volume is still very low, though, even though all the volume slide controls are on max.
But progress anyway!
