Text-to-speech functionality does not work with the Apple OS version of Adobe Acrobat Pro, as in previous versions
It has been important in my practice to review reports and multitask. The Apple OS version of Adobe Acrobat is not compatible with the system-wide keystroke of option+s, which activates text-to-speech. This essential function works with MS Office 365 and other third-party apps. Secondly, the rate of speech (even after changing the preferences) is too rapid for use. Clearly, the options of reading the whole page or whole document are limitations. I work with patients who have auditory processing problems, and I can imagine that this function makes some document reading inaccessible. The current configuration is probably an upgrade for Windows® users, but inefficient for Apple® users. The current tag routine consumes time and is not efficient as selecting text and listening to the text. Please consider adding an option to disable the Adobe text-to-speech function, similar to Microsoft Office so that one can use the Apple text-to-speech function. Thank you for reading and considering this concern.
Since I haven’t heard from you, I believe the issue is resolved for you.
