Hi,

 

I think you can do this if you set Acrobat in full screen mode(CTRL +H)  or in read mode(CTRL+L) or go to  Edit--->>Preferences---->>> "View"

 

You may also want to go to the Preferences--->>> Accessibility--->>> "Always display the keyboard selection cursor". 

 

You can dock the magnifier, set the desired type of view for the magnifyier app,  and you will be able to navigate your PDF pages in Acrobat using  the keyboard.

 

For example, to move forward or backward in your document use the arrow keys and the Tab key to actually move accross the fields in your document; the Enter key executes an object field after a selection is made from a dropdown menu or after typing in something in a text field. 

 

If you're using MS Windows 10, the only thing that I observed is that the magnifier will be present for all opened applications in Windows, to include the desktop, not just Acrobat (hitting the ESC key will exit Read Mode in Acrobat.

 

Is this what your inquiry is about?.

Hello, 

 

Thank you very much for your answer. 

Unfortunetly it doesn't work. I've tried to change the windows magnifier view and "always display the selection cursor" in accessiblility but nothing changes. However with my previous computer I was able to navigate through a PDF using Addobe while activating the Read out loud mode (maybe it could help you).

I'm using MS windows 10 with a HP Spectre.

Thank you again.
