    Thank you for raising these accessibility issues. The post mentions about the following six bugs being introduced with the update that went live on September 14, 2021

    1: Alt-Text from MS Word is not converting into the PDF. Instead, it is dropped and gibberish code is inserted
    2: Every cell border on every table cell is being tagged as <P>PathPathPathPath
    3: The underline on Hyperlinks should be tagged as artifacts
    4: Borders and background shadings on Text Boxes are being tagged as a combination of <Figure>s and PathPathPath
    5: Paragraph borders and shadings: same deal as #4 above.Per the PDF/UA-1 standard, they are visually decorative and should be artifacted
    6: Dragging and dropping elements in both the Tag and Order panels is now broken.

    Would like to mention that out of these, #1 and #6 were introduced with the Sep 14 update and remaining (#2, #3, #4 & #5)…

    Item #2 is a big problem with our table-heavy documents, and it cropped up only in the past couple of months. It takes an inordinate amount of time to visit each table tag and artifact out the <P> PathPathPathPathPath at the beginning of the header so that the tables will pass the checker.

    Can't understand why Adobe can't get it right in the first place, and then leaves customers around the world hanging in the breeze. Fix the problem!
