  1. margins to restrict read-out-loud feature

    I have a lot of deposition transcripts that I would like to simply listen to while I'm doing other tasks. The transcripts have each line numbered as well as time-stamped. Using read-out-loud feature includes all these numbers which makes listening unnecessarily lengthy and broken. I'd like to be able to define margins that the read-out-loud feature stays within, thereby eliminating the time stamps and line numbers.

    HI David,
    Thank you for connecting with us. I shared you concern with the higher management and I would like to tell you that we don’t have any current plan of implementing it. However, I have added the request in our bucket list for upcoming releases and you may see it coming in future releases.

    Thanks

  2. [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.

  5. Accessibility Check Alt Text suggestion

    When I use Accessibility Check, the document is scanned for shapes that need Alt Text. The algorithm is too sensitive. It picks up small things like bullets, hole punches, lines from shadows and a lot of stuff that winds up being marked as "decorative" that really don't need any alt text. It would be great of the algorithm were tweaked just a bit so that it figures out the area of each shape and if the area doesn't meet a minimum threshold, the algorithm doesn't flag it as needing alt-text. Perhaps a setting would let the user set the threshold,…

    Hi,
    The suggestion provided by you has been shared to the higher management. Unfortunately, no threshold can be set for the images we are checking the pdfs as per the standards. We have set them as decorative or provide an Alt text to define them.

    Feel free to contact us in case of any issue.

    Thanks

  6. barra di spazio per confermare

    ciao
    nelle versioni precedenti di acrobat, quando c'era una finestra con due scelte, tipo quando si vuole sostituire un file, annulla è in blu e premendo invio si annullava, mentre sostituisci, se nelle preferenze di osx è stato scelto su accesso completo di spuntare tutti i controlli, ha un contorno azzurro, premendo la barra di spazio si sostiutiva.
    la nostra versione è 2020.006.20042
    è possibile ripristinare questa opzione che rendeva il lavoro molto più veloce, per cortesia?

  7. Bug: Autotag distorts page and reorders images

    Start with a PDF with scanned image(s) and some transparent text, then do Autotag. The Autoag seems to change the Z order of the images and the page now looks distorted.

    Hi,
    They looked into this and it seems that there is some issue in the pdf itself. We have been working to make a better experience for our customers.
    For now, We have kept this feature in our radar and will be looking into similar documents.

    Please update to the latest versions to experience the latest features.

  8. Illustrator must make accessible PDFs

    Please add accessibility tools/features to Illustrator so that:

    1. It will export to an accessible PDF/UA-1 compliant PDF with live machine-readable text, tags, Alt-text on individual graphic elements, File Info metadata, and reading order.

    2. All of these accessibility features will be retained when an AI file is imported into InDesign for a larger sized document. Must retain the live machine-readable text, tags, Alt-text on individual elements, and reading order. (At this time, AI files become static graphics when imported into InDesign and they lose their live text and all capability of being fully PDF/UA-1 compliant.)

    This is extremely critical for info…

  9. Acrobat Reader for Mac does not expose an Accessibility Tree to VoiceOver

    Acrobat for Windows reads tagged PDF (aka PDF/UA) files and exposes an accessibility tree to assistive tech such as NVDA, Narrator, JAWS etc.

    Acrobat for Mac does not do this. (And neither does Preview, or Safari). This means that the 'portable' document format is not accessible to Mac screen reader users at all. You can get the text nodes, but none of the semantic tags are respected.

    Why is there such a discrepancy between accessibility support on the Mac vs. Windows versions of Acrobat Reader?
    That's not what 'portable' means! Please address this as soon as possible.

  11. Bug: Accessibility tool making text disappear

    The "Make Accessible" tool is making text disappear in the document. Working in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, 2015.006.30505. I opened the document, clicked on Tools, then Action Wizard, then Make Assessible. First fopur steps worked fine, but after runnuing the Document Pass and the Alt Text detection, text went missing in numerous places in the document. This is the fourth time this has happened. Look at the header on the first page.

  14. In reflow mode the black text on white background feature does not work when text is white.

    I create 100 page accessible pdfs which include, white text on coloured backgrounds. One of the tests I do in Acrobat is to view the document in reflow mode, I understand I have to change the colour of the white text to another colour in the Accessibility Preferences, it would be best viewed as black text on a white background which is one of the choices. It does not work, I am also having some trouble getting the text to even shown up clearly when selecting one of the other choices yellow on green etc. but most of all I…

  16. It would be wonderful to have the tools accessible as dropdowns from the Adobe Acrobat DC. Specifically, the file manager accessibility.

    It would be wonderful to have the tools accessible as dropdowns from the Adobe Acrobat DC. Specifically, the file manager for Adobe Sign accessibility. I should be able to get to an overview status of all my sharing and sending/receiving. Now it is confusing since I have two Adobe Acrobats and one is for signature documents, the other is for other pdf documents.

  17. Highlight text as Read Out Loud feature is reading the text

    When using the Read Out Loud feature, please have it highlight the words it is reading out loud while it is reading it. This will enable users to follow along as the program reads the document to them. Someone asked about it in the forum in 2017 and your representative kept telling them to click on the text they want the program to read to them. This is not the goal and often inconvenient. The goal is to be able to select "Read Page Only" or "Read Entire Document" and as it is read aloud by the program have the…

  19. Read aloud feature reads chaper numbers as calendar dates

    Adobe Read out loud feature is reading some section and figure numbers as a date. It only seems to happen where the number has a format of 3 digits, separated by a decimal, and where the 3rd digit is greater or equal to 10. For example, 3.2.11 is read “March Second, Eleven” and 4.4.10 is read “April Fourth, Ten”. I’m assuming it is a setting in Adobe somewhere, since it is doing it for text within the document as well, not just figure numbers or alt text from images. There was nothing odd about the text from the word versions…
