  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.

    Hi Joel,
    We are always working to make it a better of experience for our accessibility customers.
    We’ll be adding the support of Undo/Redo in order panels and Reading Order Tool in our coming releases.
    Can you please tell me why you need the Tags Panel and Reading Order to be merged.

    Thanks
    Rachit.

  2. Bug - PDF Tag Panel does not match Reading Order Tool by marking all Tags as Span

    This issue of InDesign and Acrobat incompatibility in regards to Acrobat displaying all spans even when the Reading Order is correct has been around for over two years. We deserve to know what Adobe is doing about it.

    Acrobat Team acknowledges the problem and blames InDesign:

    "It's actually not an Acrobat issue, it's an issue with InDesign and how it's generating the Content that Acrobat is displaying correctly"

    https://forums.adobe.com/message/10005333#10005333

    InDesign Team acknowledges the problem and blames Acrobat:

    "You'd have to talk to the Acrobat team about why they display in the Tags panel the way they do." - Adobe

  4. Remove Document Preparation Dialogue

    Why would I need a dialogue box to tell me it's preparing and ready?? JUST DO IT! I don't need 15 dialogue boxes for each document open telling me about it. It's a background task; it should be in the background. This is so painfully obvious I can't understand why this dialogue box exists or why it doesn't disappear when ready instead of forcing itself on top and in the way.

    Hi All,
    This dialog is displayed when some assistive technology (like screen reader) is running/has been used on the system. However, some other tools like some keypress tracking tools are also detected as assistive technology.
    Please follow the below steps as per your need :
    1. If you are not an assistive technology user, just go to Acrobat Preferences → Accessibility and uncheck the option “Enable Assistive Technology Support”. This will stop the dialog from appearing.

    2. If you are an assistive technology user, then go to Acrobat Preferences →Reading and Under “Screen Reader Options” select “Only read the currently visible pages”. This will stop the dialog from appearing. Note : However with this, the dialog may appear for heavy files sometimes.

    If anyone is still facing the issue, Please contact us.

    Thanks
    Rachit

  6. 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.

  8. User- Friendly Accessibility Tagging

    Please change the way Adobe Acrobat does the reading order so that the tags in the tags pane will automatically correspond to the order in the Touch- up reading order pane.
    Also please make it easier to tag links - when I try to tag links it doesn't work right. Please consider creating a version of Adobe Acrobat that makes it easy to comply with Section 508 as described at Section508.gov. Dealing with the tags pane is a nightmare and also the unmarked annotations issue and other issues are a nightmare and don't fix easily. Please make this easier to…

  10. Accessibility Table Tags, Table Summary, H1-3 are not being read by screen readers NVDA and JAWS

    We received this document from a vendor and it wasn't tagged for accessibility. I went through page by page, adding figure alternative text, table summaries, and tagged H1 through H3 headings. Then using Adobe's book mark tool I auto-generated the bookmarks based on the H1-3 heading tags.

    I sent this document to our 508C consultant who is blind. He used NVDA and JAWS to read the document. He found all of the alt text for figures but could not see the H1-3 tags nor could he see any of the tables or table summaries.

    I double checked the document using…

  11. Reading experience dyslexics

    Hi! I have ADHD and dyslexia. I think it's kind of vital to improve the reading experience at the Acrobat reader. Microsoft has done a good job with the Edge epub reading features, would be nice to have some of these features to improve reading acessibility.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. Accessibility of hyperlinks breaks when adding a page and cannot be fixed

    I use Word 365 of a main docment to generate a PDF, and remediate in Acrobat DC. I have to add in pages in the fron an back of the document that comprises the front and back covers (also from Word). (The cover PDFs also pass accessibility check).

    However, when I drag one page into the Main document PDF and run the accessiblity checker, all the hyperlinks that tested OK in the main document now generate a 'tagged annotations' error.

    Normally, remediating such errors is easy: you show in the content panel, find the unmarked links/annotations and tag them appropriately.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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:
