But Jaws closely matched Acrobat's quality when converting CorelDraw, Excel, and PowerPoint files... The Web pages Jaws converted into PDF files looked good, but Jaws didn't convert the links. It compressed the Photoshop test file to an impressively small 98K—an important advantage for sending files by e-mail...
