  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.

        This usually not happens, I tried on multiple files.
        Can you please confirm if this is happening on all files for you or on a set of files. Also, how did you created these files where you are seeing this issue.

        Thanks.

      • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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…

                    • Text-to-speek SELECTED text only

                      I don't know how Acrobat has not allowed for a Text-To-Speech option of SELECTED text only yet. It's an amazing tool for people with disabilities... especially those who need text read to them.

                      It is extremely frustrating having to listen to the text of a document from the begining if you only need the last paragraph read allowed. Extremely disappointed Adobe hasn't stepped up their game.

                          I run a lot of scripts on Acrobat and it would be nice to have the tools tab be the one that opens on launch. Currently, I need to do 4 clicks every time I want to run an action script Tools > Action > Choose My Action > Select Files.

                          Even a shortcut to specific tools would be amazing! You can do this on all other Adobe programs (assign shortcuts) but you cannot do this on Acrobat and it makes my workflow on this program so much slower.

                          I saw a lot of requests to remove the tools pane,…

                              • 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:

                                • Tagging table cell contents, attribute inherited

                                  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…

                                  • Bug: language identifiers lost

                                    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 versions

                                    • Cannot use Page Up/Page Down Keys or Jump to Other Open Document

                                      I cannot get the Page Up/Down keys to work. I'm viewing a multi-page PDF in full page to flip through them and spot changes. I can't see an option to reset tools or select this as a transition option.
                                      Also, in all other Adobe products, you can hit Command+` to jump between open documents, but not in Acrobat.

                                        Hello Sir,
                                        Please use Arrow keys on mac and Page Up/Page Down keys on windows to flip though pages. Also for switching between open Documents, Please use Ctrl+Tab key for both mac and windows. Please tell if this solution works for you.

                                        Thanks
                                        Rachit

                                        • Creating table summary removes accessible table tags

                                          Using the latest Acrobat DC on MacOS Sierra, the only way to add a summary to a table also removes correct, accessible tags.

                                          The only way to access the table summary is to open the Touch Up Reading Order panel, highlight the table in question, and mark it as a table in the TURO panel--even though the table was already correctly tagged and in the correct reading order. After this is done, the user can right click on the table and add a table summary.

                                          However, doing this changes the <table> tag to two nested <sect> tags and removes any…
