Text in columns scrambled

(1/1)

Anonymous:
Hi, when I go to PDF view the text in pdf's that have columns is scrambled. Therefore the text to speech is also weird; it will read one line from column one, then from column two, then from one again etc. How can I fix this?

RTT:
This is not exactly a bug, but rather a yet to be developed feature. Be able to detect/define text columns.
Extracting text from PDF's is not a easy task, and feeding it to the text out loud tool, in the normal, left to right columns, reading order is even more problematic.
I really have to spend some time on this, but right now, it's not on the top of near-future enhancements list :(
