  1. Make Accessible PDF's accessible.

    The process to make a PDF accessible is overly complicated and buggy. Usually while doing this, something will go wrong and the only way to fix it is to close the document, open it again, do the same process and hope it works. This process should be as simplistic as possible so everything can be accessible.

    • More Options for Accessibility Tables

      Create 508 compliant PDF documents frequently that need to be passed. These documents more than not have several lengthy tables. These documents also come from different people using different software and versions. And more than not these tables need to be rebuilt. Would love to have the option to create tables in the Tags sidebar from scratch where you can at the same time specify how many TR, TH, and TD and in a certain order. Right now I can only add them one at a time. Also, if there is a way to remove the hard setup of tables.…

      • Bug: General preferences > Use Single Key Accelerators To Access Tools: doesn't work

        Both, Acrobat DC and Reader DC ignore the "General preferences > Use Single Key Accelerators To Access Tools" settings.

        Although I checked this option, whenever I open a PDF document, acceleration keys (e.g. "H" or "D" for changing the selection mode) don't work.

        Deselecting and selecting this option in General Preferences temporarily enables this feature, but both programs "forget" this setting the next time one of them is getting launched.

        • Reading order list

          It would be a HUGE improvement for the work I do if the reading order also could be changed by typing the order numbers in the order list. The reading order list can be very long sometimes, with endless, tedious drag and drops on each page as it is now.
          It is also annoying that the list jumps back to the top each time you re-order the list.

          • Acrobat deleted form fields from reading order when moved even one pixel

            I am using the latest version of Mac Acrobat DC 2018.011.20038

            1- Make a form field.
            2- Select it so you can make a <form> with the OBJR
            3- Drag it into its proper spot in the reading order.
            4- Then move it even one pixel, it will delete itself. This happens on all fields of any type. It also happens if you just resize any field.

            Since this Adobe Forum usually asks questions until people give up on the thread I even made a video of the whole thing:

            https://drive.google.com/open?id=1S79CQ53xiebkxiXmZawAML2kpSY3O6Bn

            By the way, I lost 17 hours of work.…

            • Headings are not being shown in the TURO tool after saving as a tagged PDF from Word

              The document is being tagged, perhaps properly, but it is impossible to tell using the TURO tool when showing structure types. In the Tags pane, headings are shown as H1, H2, etc in the actual tags, but whether the TURO tool is on when the Order or Tags panel is active, these show up as text (P).
              I've never seen this problem before and suspect it has to do with a recent update/release.

              • Accessibility Checker

                With Accessibility Checker, I think there is a bug - the title was flagged as an issue. I took all the steps to correct this but it continues to come up as an issue when I use the checker. I've recreated the issue twice. I'm on a Mac, OS Sierra v10.12, MS Word v15.38, Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Thank you.

                • PDF Initial View Magnification Guidelines

                  Why doesn't Adobe set the default initial view magnification setting to "fit page" so a viewer can see an entire document upon initial view? As a seasoned graphic designer, I believe it is much more courteous to allow the viewer to orient themselves to an entire document and then allow then to zoom in for more detail. It is disconcerting to see a partial document when opening a PDF file. Adobe is a leader in accessibility standards and I wondered if you had insight into this topic, I don't see a recommended initial view magnification in the WCAG 2.0 AA…

                    • Artifacting error

                      In Acrobat DC, we have encountered an issue with method of artifacting/backgrounding. As best we can tell, in DC, there is only one way that it can be done to work correctly - through the content panel/right click/create artifact. Other methods of backgrounding (via the order panel or TURO panel) cause it to visually show on the screen and in order panel as a paragraph tag while in the content and tags panel it indicates it’s an artifact.

                      • alt text issue

                        We have had issues with alt text being duplicated into the actual text field when using the right click to access alt text or using the order panel to access alt text. The only way it is not duplicated is if alt text is entered via the tags panel properties method.

                        • Word 2016 create pdf plug in places artifact tags inside table structure

                          The Acrobat plug in for Word 2016 to create a pdf places artifact tags inside the table structure which causes an error in detailed accessibility checkers. The only way to make these fully compliant is to manually remove these artifact tags from the tags tree. We typically have to go back to old versions to pdf correctly. If you must place artifact tags in table structures (assuming due to new 508 refresh law), it would be fantastic if they could be placed together outside of the table structure or together at the top of the table structure rather than on…

                                    • Bug: language identifiers lost (re-post with attachments)

                                      When importing pages from other PDF's, any language identifiers associated with the individual accessibility tags are not imported. This has been a long-standing issues across all Acrobat version.
                                      Attached are two files: English.pdf and Spanish.pdf, each containing a single <P> tag whose languages have been set to "English" and "Spanish" respectively. If you merge the two files by selecting both (in Windows explorer), right-clicking, and choosing "Combine in Acrobat", the resulting file will not have any language identifiers associated with the merged tags. The same outcome happens if, from within Acrobat, you go to page view and select insert pages…

                                      • Why is there a Reading Order pane and a Tags pane? Is there any circumstance that would require them not to match?

                                        Why is there a Reading Order pane and a Tags pane? Is there any circumstance that would require them not to match? Do any screen readers even use the Reader Order anymore?

                                          Hi Joel,
                                          Basically Tags pane defines the structure as well as tagged reading order required for accessibility purpose. Reading order pane just defines the reading order (irrespective of the structure of the content). This is used by mobile devices to power the existing ‘reflow’ feature.

                                          We have raised the issue for syncing both of them for now. Also, we have raised a feature request to unify both the panes in future.

                                          Thanks

                                          When remediating a document created from Word, we had a group of tables (actually embedded Excel sheets) that auto-tagged as Figures. When the cells in these Figures were manually tagged using the Reading Order Tool they inherited the Bounding Box and Placement attributes of the Figure tag they were within. If the Figure tag was deleted and then the content was tagged this problem did not occur, but who knew this would happen? This caused unexpected issues using several remediation Tools -- Commonlook Validator would not open the file and Axes PDF Quick Fix showed a large bounding box around…
