  1. Highlight to website

    If you are looking at a text you should be able to highlight a part of the text it should send you to the website that they got the idea from. While your writing a text instead of putting in a bibliography you should highlight your text and reference it there.

  2. InDesign to Acrobat Accessibility Bug

    When performing Acrobat remediation on Indesign publications containing correct export tagging, the Acrobat Reading Order tool shows "P" tags at the end of each line of text (as well as additional "P" tags in the middle of lines). The Acrobat Tags panel shows no paragraph tags -- just broken up lines of text.

    Fortunately, these broken up lines are not reproduced as such by the screen reader. So why does Acrobat identify each line of text with a "P" in the first place?

    This issue needs to be fixed as it creates a dilemma and lot of unnecessary remediation work…

  3. Adobe Acrobate Doesnt work with Fillable forms of the LiveCycle Type

    It is completely mind numbing that this product doesnt work with Live Cycle Designer files. These are the PDF files that are used by the IRS. So I can not fill in a form from the IRS and save it. BUT Apple Preview works perfectly fine on these files. So my FREE PDF viewer works better than this Adobe PDF P.O.S. What a waste of a product.

  4. Editable Search Highlighting

    It would be helpful to allow users to be able to select from different highlighting options for search results (bolded, color options, highlighting entire search result). I have a very difficult time detecting the slight shift from black to blue. A better option would be a brighter color (selectable) highlight of the entire word, instead of shifting just the color of the text.

  5. Need darker text

    Text in PDFs is too light--much harder to read than in older versions of Acrobat Pro. Zooming in doesn't help. Please restore darker text to make documents legible without eyestrain!

    Hi,
    Please try to change the colours as per your needs from Preferences(Ctrl/Cmd+K) → Accessibility → Check Replace Document Colours → Use High Contrast or custom color and select colours as per you needs from Dropdown or color selector.

    If you still face issue then please share a picture of the pdf.

    Thanks

  6. Improved MacOS "spoken content" functionality in Acrobat for Mac

    The text reader in MacOS is not a typical screen reader, but it does provide easy, fast access to spoken content from on-screen text. Unfortunately, it does not work with Adobe Acrobat. Ideally, it would speak selected text with a keyboard shortcut, but only reads the document name in Adobe Acrobat. The Acrobat screen reader is difficult to use, does not read selected text, and often fails due to pdf accessibility issues.

  7. Immersive Reader vs. Acrobat Read Out Loud Audio

    Microsoft Word 365 has an immersive reader where the text is read out loud while panning and highlighting the text being read with options such as WPM adjustment. Trying to use the Read Out Loud function in Adobe Acrobat Reader is painful. It is hard to find, the synthetic voice is unpleasant and disruptive, and overall the accessibility for this feature seems to be the bare minimum. PDF's are the format of choice for scientific papers, which are rather dry reading material. An option to listen, following along while reading would greatly increase the efficacy of this program. I've personally…

  8. Bug: Images become blank grey boxes when changing the reading order

    When we change the reading order in Accessibility of images in a scanned and OCR'd document, the image becomes a grey or white box and no longer shows the image if we move it in the reading order. If you move it back to the original location in the reading order, the grey box disappears. If you save it once the grey box appears, it's permanent. We have tried working with support and they've witnessed the issue happen. The open case may be under cheil@wooster.edu but I don't have the case number handy.

    Hi Jennifer,
    Thank you for connecting with us. I tried to reproduce it on my side but couldn’t find any issue. It would be better if you could provide a sample file and a video if the issue via a cloud link so that we can check it and provide a solution to this.

    Thanks

  9. Reflow View - file corruption, pages gets "stuck" in reflow View or change orientation

    Have had problem with several files becoming corrupted by using Reflow View. Two things happen:
    1. Some pages get "stuck" in reflow even after closing and reopening the file.

    2. The format of some pages changes to Portrait or other design changes occur.

  10. Assign shortcut keys to all menus and options

    Not only is the DC interface confusing and more time-consuming to use than the old one, but it does not comply with Section 508 of the Americans With Disability Act, which requires that the federal government, in its software procurement process, consider accessibility. Adobe Acrobat does not take into account the needs of users who rely on voice recognition software to accomplish actions that fully abled users accomplish with the mouse. When using voice recognition software, it is quick and easy to dictate a shortcut key or sequence of shortcut keys, but extremely slow, cumbersome and error-prone to get the…

  11. [Bug] Horizontal/vertical lines sometimes do not change color when text color is changed

    Reproduction: Open the "woodruffsvm" file or the "variance_reduction-saddle" file I attached, change text color to white.

    Environment: MacOS Big Sur, Adobe Acrobat DC

    Expected Result: the horizontal/vertical lines coming from fraction bars, square root signs, and tables should be changed to white as well

    Observed Result: these lines remained black

    This seems to happen for some pdfs and not others; for example, in the "unified" pdf I attach, the fraction bars and table lines are properly changed.

  12. Adobe Acrobat Portfolio and Attachment Features Need Keyboard Accessibility Enabled to read documents and access the Open Document Link

    Within Adobe Acrobat there are options to Create a Portfolio of documents or to use the Attachment feature to create a group of documents. While keyboard shortcuts allow you to browse some of the menus, get to the document list, and select a document from the list. However, there is not a keyboard short cut to read the document in the view or to access the Open Document link. It seems to be only available through mouse selection.

    This places users of these features at risk because the end user can't access the document to read it using only keyboard…

  13. Scope and associated header cells in tables should show when you hover over a cell

    It would be amazing if you didn't have to go all the way inside Cell Properties to check and see what a header cell's scope is set as, and what header cells are associated with any given cell in a table. If, once you were already inside Table Editor, that information would be available when you hover over any given cell (could be a feature that can be turned on or off), it would save so much time and effort in a very tedious job.

    When a table is really large or complicated, it can be easy to lose your…

  14. Autotag a table or a portion of a page

    I am interested in being able to auto-tag a part of a page, such as a table, for example. Can you let me know where Adobe is in term of implementing the partial auto-tag suggestion. Thanks.

  15. Enable Accessibility options automatically during save.

    We need a way to setup adobe Pro to automatically utilize the accessbility scanner when saving a doc to become more ADA compliant.

    Out of the box, this should be a feature we can turn on.

  16. Read-out bug

    I want to report a bug in the read-out loud feature of Acrobat Pro DC. I’m using a Mac (Mojave), and I have already set its accessibilty options to my favorite system voice and speaking rate. I thought I’d have a PDF doc read out aloud while I work on some graphics. The default voice was meh-next-to-terrible, so I looked under preferences for an option to change voice. I found it and was happy to find a long list of available voices, including the ones I already have installed on my computer. So I selected my favorite voice and tried…

  17. Open last viewed files

    I am a PhD student and have switched to Adobes pdf viewer because I think it is the best one (google and edge do not offer the same accessibility for mark up etc.) The one thing that I love about google and edge is that you can set them to open the previously viewed document. I read a lot of articles and use the tabs as a sort of reading to-do list. But when I close adobe (or my computer restarts) that list disappears, I have to either remember them or go to the recently opened files to open them…

    Hi,
    As I understood the issue faced by you, I would like to inform you that when you close the pdf, you can open them by two ways:
    1. Select multiple pdf from Recent using checkbox and then click Open in the context board on right side.
    2. Go to File→ Reopen pdf from last session.

    Please confirm it this will resolve your problem.

    Thanks

    Can you please specify the issues that you are facing currently. Also check out Read Out Loud feature under View → Read Out Loud →Activate. Also you can change related setting in Preferences → Reading → Under Reading Out Loud options. Please change them as per you need and tell us if this resolves your issue.

  19. Accessibility- Reading order pause

    I am just updating my resume to be more accessible to vision impaired. I am having trouble with some items running together in read-aloud.

    In Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

    My favoured option would be that we have the option to insert a <pause> object in the reading order.

    If this is not possible, can you change Read-Aloud to pause between elements.

    Hi Barry,
    Thank you for connecting with us. I believe you need a pause shortcut while using Read Out Loud. Please check View → Read Out Loud → Pause option. Use the shortcut key to pause and resume.

    Please check this out and confirm if this resolves your issue.

  20. Replacement Text (AccSupp ActualText entry) Support

    We noticed that your PDF viewer doesn't have AccSupp ActualText support. This means that copy-pasting technical text such as shellscripts and programming code, does not work in your PDF viewer and this greatly restrains the use of your whole program.

    The replacement text is said to be supported, according to the file "Document management - Portable document format - Part 1: PDF 1.7" both on Table 323, page 559, and on section 14.9.4, page 615. Available here: https://www.adobe.com/content/dam/acom/en/devnet/pdf/PDF32000_2008.pdf.

    But according to the tests made using PDFs produced by pdflatex using the package accsupp, the replacement text support seems to…
