  1. Read aloud and google drive

    Thanks for bringing this issue to our notice. Your valuable feedback helps us improving our product. We discussed about this particular issue and we do not have any plans to work on it in immediate future. However, we’ll have it in our radar and might revisit at an appropriate time in future.

  2. Activate/Deactivate Menu option

    I think it could be nice to click on the same button to deactivate the previously selected option. For instance, I selected the Highlighter to highlight some words. I though it was the same button to quit this state, as the same interactivity gate. Instead of that, I needed to go on the Arrow symbol to deselect the Highlighter.

  3. make it easier to add alt-text to all parts of a pdf

    The process for adding alt text is rather onerous, especially for pdfs created from jpegs or other image files. It requires typing in all of the text and doesn't provide for an easy way to separate out sections of a pdf, as in a poster with a varied layout, such as a biographical poster with a photo, titles, subtitles, etc.

  4. Menu is too bright - makes hard to access menu items

    Thank you for your reply to my previous post to this topic a few hours ago:

    "Hi
    Can you please be more specific about which menu are you facing the issue with?"

    Maybe its better not to remove the post before letting me answer.

    The issue covers all drop-down-menus (top menu bar) and Sub-menus and also sidebars just as 'Page editing' including tools.

    By now now we have around 120 licences and almost every user has reported problems navigating through the program due to low contrast between text and Background.

    We hope this Problem will be fixed by an update…

  5. 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.

  7. Tools Pane Opens on Launch

    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,…

  8. Read out loud selected word(s)

    I suggest a feature that would read out loud individual word(s) as selected by the user and also be able to read out loud the alt tag on images if the image is clicked. Thank you!

  9. Bug: language identifiers lost (re-post with attachments)

    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 version.
    Attached are two files: English.pdf and Spanish.pdf, each containing a single <P> tag whose languages have been set to "English" and "Spanish" respectively. If you merge the two files by selecting both (in Windows explorer), right-clicking, and choosing "Combine in Acrobat", the resulting file will not have any language identifiers associated with the merged tags. The same outcome happens if, from within Acrobat, you go to page view and select insert pages…

  10. Why is there a Reading Order pane and a Tags pane? Is there any circumstance that would require them not to match?

    Why is there a Reading Order pane and a Tags pane? Is there any circumstance that would require them not to match? Do any screen readers even use the Reader Order anymore?

    This is an enhancement request but we currently do not plan to cater to this as it is not very critical and also, not many people have supported this.

  13. Change color of the cursor

    I am in output preview looking at the cyma color composition on my document and because the background of the document is 50% k I'm having problems seeing the cursor. Being able to change the cursor color to something like magenta or cyan would help me immensely identify where the cursor is

  14. 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…

  18. 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…

  20. 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…
