  1. Automatically open the appropriate navigation tab after initial display properties are changed. I hate having to open it myself.

    When I change the initial view to display the pages or bookmarks panel and click OK, I wish the program would automatically open the appropriate panel for me instead of having to do it myself. It's almost easier to close the file and re-open it than it is to go open the panel myself.

  2. Accessibility - Table Cell Splitting/size bug

    In making large, complex tables accessible, I have repeatedly come across multiple cells that I have drawn with the cell button on the reading order panel, that either include more than one cell, or create one cell that is so large that I cannot select any cells beneath it.

  3. Why is my computer screen so bright?

    The screens are way too bright? Why don't we add a button that makes it brighter and dimmer? That way we can change the brightness.
    Thank you for you attention!

  4. Inverted color view of PDF for improved accessibility

    I am visually impaired, reading anything with an all white background is virtually impossible for me. It would he extremely helpful if Acrobat had a setting to display the PDF contents in reverse video. There are browser extensions (i.e. Chrome High Contrast) which provide the capability for a general web page (which is how I am able to fill in this form).
    Also, the Acrobat dark theme helps, but it doesn't change the displayed PDF contents, and it's dark background is way too light. It should be very close to black (#000000).

  5. Accessibility Enhancement

    List labels are rarely get tagged which make the tagging extremely tedious. Tables, underlines, links always leave pathing tags which need to be manually removed from the content, again making the process of creating accessible files extremely tedious. There has got to be a better way.

  6. Saving a PDF 508 compliant form to Reader Enabled deletes table summaries

    When I save out a PDF form to File > Save as Other > Reader Extended PDF > Enable More Tools, which includes all the necessary elements for 508 compliance, including table summaries, the resultant Reader enabled file has the table summaries deleted.

    Thus it is impossible to get the final form PDF to pass 508 testing, because now I cannot edit the final PDF in order to restore the table summary.

    Thanks for looking into this.

  7. Accessibility checker nested alternate text

    Checker flags link in a table cell as invalid. (<Link> and <Link - OBJR> in a table <TD> cell). I believe this is not a failure point and should not be flagged. Would appreciate a review of this check and a note regarding which protocol is the reason if I am incorrect.

  8. Multiple Undo in Order and Content panels

    2 years ago, Adobe programmed that the Tags panel would have Undo. That was very helpful.

    But we also need to Undo in the Order and Contents panels, too.

    When remediating PDFs to meet accessibility guidelines and laws, people work in the Order and Content panels, too, not just in the Tags panel. As in any workflow, we sometimes need to undo what we just did.

    Right now, we must revert to the previously saved version which might go back too far and not be helpful at all.

  9. Reading multi-page table with NVDA or JAWS

    Accessibility with NVDA / JAWS: for a data table that spans multiple pages in large files:
    UsingAcrobat Reader DC Version 2019.010.20098 on Windows 10 laptop
    At present my experience is that the table is not exposed as a continuous table.
    Consider a 3 column table.
    Only on the first page on which the table begins, the column headers are read as one switches columns.
    For an NVDA or JAWS user, every subsequent page seems to have a distinct 3 column table with x or y rows and the column headers on the first row of the table on the start…

  11. Mapping the center mouse button to different tools

    when pressing the center button on the mouse currently it allows 4 way scrolling option. It would be better for my use if it could be mapped to the hand tool instead of always having to switch back to the hand tool(for left click)

    Hello John,
    Thanks for reporting your concern to us. I had escalated the issue to then higher management. We have kept it in our radar and will implement it in the near future.

    Thanks

  12. Need to be able to hide or resize the intrusive pane ("Create PDF"; "Combine Files"; etc.) on the RIGHT. It consumes valuable screen space.

    Need to be able to hide or resize the intrusive pane ("Create PDF"; "Combine Files"; etc.) on the operator's RIGHT. It consumes valuable screen space. Make it available when needed and GONE when not.

  14. Reading Order Tool and Highlighting Content is Inaccessible to Screen Reader Users

    Bug: The Reading Order Tool, and / or Highlighting content in a PDF document for tagging is inaccessible.
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Using Acrobat Pro DC 2019 under Windows 7 / 8 / 10, open an untagged PDF for which you do not have the source file.
    2. Preferably, launch a screen reader such as NVDA (http://www.nvaccess.org) or JAWS 2019 (www.freedomscientific.com)
    3. Attempt to begin tagging portions of the document. For most people, this is done using the reading order tool found in the accessibility tools.
    4. Once in the reading order tool, attempt to select…

  15. Auto Tag a Single Page

    Acrobat's new Autotag utility re-tags the entire document.

    Sometimes most of the PDF is fine and I just need to correct one page or a portion of content that I've selected.

    But we can't do that: right now, it's all or nothing.

    Give us the option to autotag the entire document, a single page, or the content we have selected with our cursor. Keep the other tags that are already in the PDF.

  16. Keyboard Shortcut for "Find Tag"

    Need a keyboard shortcut when working in the Tags Panel to Find Tag From Selection.

    This utility is used a bazillion times a day by those who must make accessible PDFs.

  18. Streamline accessibility process from Word, PLEASE

    If a document passes MS Word accessibility standards, throwing errors as a pdf is time-consuming and just plain wrong. I'm trying to teach faculty and staff at a college how to do this and it is SO cumbersome! Just for a simple, one-page doc, passed all chekcs in word, still getting 2 errors as pdf and I cannot even FIND the tags panel in spite of multiple searches. Arrgghhh! Frustrating and disapointing for those of us trying to make all learning materials accessible for all students, including those who are blind, vision impaired or using screen readers!

  19. Correct Hebrew reading order in PDF

    When exporting a PDF from a Hebrew InDesign file, where the tagging order is correctly set from RTL and Adobe World-Ready Paragraph Composer is checked, the screen reader (JAWS in this case) reads the Hebrew text backwards. Is this something that is currently supported?

  20. BUG: Shortkey to Accessibility menu does not work in French

    For the production of a robot, I need it to use hotkeys to get into menu's in Adobe acrobat. I got everything to work in English and Dutch languages. But when I want to access the same menu's with a combination of ALT and the desired letters (they differ per language offcourse), in French; All of a sudden he does not get past ALT+S (for accessabilité, which is accessability in French).

    I think there must be a bug hidden somewhere.
