​ I bring up a PDF page and reading says Warning, empty page.  What do I do?

Hi Crazycatz,

Could you please confirm, how have you been trying to open the PDF file? Is it using the Adobe Reader DC desktop application or on the web?

Or if you are using the "Read Out Loud" feature and it says the page is blank, I assume that the pdf file that you are working on is a scanned document or contain the image only which doesn't contain the real characters?

Adobe Reader doesn't support OCR, so if its scanned or image document it wont run the OCR and will detect the document as blank page.

You have to use the Adobe Acrobat DC for such files.

Problems with read aloud - says blank (Acrobat Reader)

Hope this answers your query.

Regards,

Akanchha

Than you for your response. I scanned a typed page using the scan feature on a copier at work. From your response it sounds like it reads it as an OCR image which adobe reader doesn’t support. I’m using Adobe reader D C which I downloaded free and the read out load feature in the software. I learned something new today from your response. Thanks.

You're welcome!

Glad to hear that it was helpful for you. And yes you got it correctly, if its a scanned document and you are accessing it in Reader then the read out loud wont work.

Let us know if any further assistance is required.

Regards,

Akanchha

Hi Foobaj,

I apologize for the delay in response.

I assume the scenario is same in your case too. The files on which you have been getting "Empty Page" warnings must be the scanned once.

Have you checked any other document or any doc that you have created?

Can you share anyone of the document with us? We would test the same at our end as well.

"You can share the file with us via email. And you can send it to the email that is shared via private message. Please do mention your forum thread in the subject"

Regards,

Akanchha

I installed Adobe Acrobat reader against my better judgement since it's been my experience that it is bloated, slow, and with many issues.  - Well, it has a prettier UI now, but it's still as 'wonky' as ever..
--
• FIRST:  the read aloud settings required serious configuration on system and the program itself..
THEN ->>>> The Read Aloud pauses between words and there's no fix or work around(Yes I used many PDF files to test). I reinstalled, adjusted settings, checked updates..etc.. nothing works.
• SECOND: "Warning Empty Page"  happens when the first page of a book/tech-book is scanned for its' cover bind.. yet the rest of the PDF is in selectable text. This is normal for Tech books to have images for the cover display... yet Read Aloud refuses to read the current page as it's too poorly programmed to realize I don't want it to readpages 1 or 0 or 2,3,4,5,6,7,8... etc but page 10..it defaults to page 1 no matter what.

WHY IS THIS SO POORLY MADE ?! 
..I have been googling for 1 hour now to fix both problems, ADOBE support has no idea how to fix this and google shows ALOT of people have these issues.
..I knew I would regret using Adobe Acrobat.

Please ADOBE, fix this.  Thank You.

Hi there,

I am using LiveCycle Designer ES4 with Adobe Acrobat DC on Windows 10.

I'm developing dynamic PDFs and I was able to make my PDF being readable after print / flattening my PDF using Adobe PDF Converter. But, I'm trying to make it readable while filling the PDF. Using Adobe LiveCycle Designer, I modify the information within the Accessibility palette to have Screen Reader Precedence to the appropriate value. Also I have the Form Properties > Save Options > Generate Accessibility Information (Tags) for Acrobat checked "On". But the only objects that are being read by the Reader is signature fields... all other pages have this "Warning - Empty Page".

So I created a new blank file with few objects in it, with the accessibility settings as mentioned above... and still nothing working. Anyone have any insights about this issue?

I am having the same issue. The accessibility reader (NVDA) reads fine when the file is saved as a "static" pdf. However, once it is saved as a "dynamic" file, the error, "warning empty page" occurs for all pages except for those with signauture fields. Can anyone help with this issue?

Hello,

The Read Aloud seems to be inconsistant.   Sometimes it works, and other times it says aloud "Warning Empty Page".  I am using it to read PDFs.   The pages are editable, and Adobe recognizes that they are text.  I am working on a PC running Windows 10 home.  My files are up to date.

It is working on some files but not on others.  Is there a way to trouble shoot this so that the Read Aloud will work all the time, or so that I can make the necessary adjustments in order to get it working?
