Subject: pdf screen reader accessibility?
Date: Mon, 6 Apr 2015 04:25:57 -0400 (EDT)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <alpine.NEB.2.11.1504060417310.20962@panix2.panix.com> (raw)

http://www.adobe.com/accessibility/products.html
is a good place to start.
When a document gets written in Microsoft Word, its language is made part 
of that document.  If that document is later converted to a pdf file that 
language information is taken in by the conversion process then becomes 
the first component that starts to make screen reader accessibility of a 
pdf file possible.  Other components exist, but without that language 
attribute presence, screen reader accessibility is disabled.  Another 
major requirement is ocr scanned content pictures by themselves in pdf 
files are worthless to screen readers.  I'm using speakup over here on 
archlinux and am curious if it is now possible or some day will be 
possible for me to export to a screen reader accessible pdf file I can 
share with other screen reader users with no fear that the file won't be 
accessible.
