  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. Accessibility Checker to check at WCAG in line with PAC3 App checker

    We are continually getting issues with compliance and the Adobe PDF Checker is not being stringent enough. We have created PDFs that are given a clear bill of health using the Adobe checker but our web team use the PAC3 app to verify and they fail on many levels. We would like Adobe to improve the checker to a similar standard so it then complies with legislation for public service bodies in the United Kingdom. Also, as we use Macs most other checkers are PC only so a level playing field would be immensely helpful. Thanks.

  3. Hyperlinks Spanning Multiple Lines

    Hyperlinks that span more than one line create multiple OBJR tags.
    Reproduce: Create file in InDesign with links that span more than one line. Export to PDF/open with Acrobat. Find tag. Link will have two OBJR tags (or more if the link spans more than two lines). This is a bad experience for users of assistive technologies.
    Sometimes manually fixing tags (deleting old links and creating new OBJR tag) isn't sufficient and designer has to resort to editing in the content pane or even using the Actual Text override to get the link to be read by assistive technology properly. …

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

    Thanks

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. [Feature request] Copy/Paste of Tag structure

    Working with tagging of PDF documents for accessibility purposes, with a lot of them being nearly identical to each other or within a document there are repeated patterns, it takes a long time and a tidious task to create tags individually. It would be a very neat if it were possible to Copy/Paste the (selected) tag strutucture within the Tags-panel (excluding any actual content they may contain)

  11. Read out loud to end/this page: The ability to start from anywhere (available using right+click from selected area of the document)

    Read out loud to end or read this page only: The ability to start from anywhere (make option available using right+click from selected area of the document). It's maddening to have to listen to the document over and over and over and over and over and over and over... when troubleshooting order errors. TIA

  12. Better labeling of Action Wizard Controls for screen reader users

    I am encountering problems with poorly labeled controls in the Acrobat DC Action Wizard. As a blind screen reader user, I would greatly appreciate anything you can do to improve the control labels that are spoken by screen readers. I am using the JAWS 2020 screen reader with Acrobat DC version 20.006.20042.
    The issues I have encountered:


    1. Some of the button control labels are unclear and it is difficult to determine which control has focus. For example, when adding a Watermark, the button to add the watermark is spoken as “Add”. If I press “space” to select this option, another…

    Hi,
    I checked the issues after your response.

    For point 2, the behaviour is as designed. It seems that the user have to select the option as the default selected item is the last added item in RHP and if no addition is done, then none of the option is selected. Further, I’m not able to hear “AV container View” with controls. I’ve informed the engineering team regarding this.

    For point 3, I have raised the issues with engineering team and hopefully it will be fixed in future release.

    Thanks
    Rachit

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Read to end of document issues on a Mac

    Read to end of document only reads a single page or sometimes doesn't read at all.

    Hi,
    Thanks for contacting us. Please share the pdf via a weblink with me where you are facing this issue. We’ll have to whether the issue is in the pdf itself or not.

  18. Reading of Table contents

    Hi Team
    Please include with Table Control, the option of reading table header with each column value so that it can become easy for person who is trying to understand the contents read
