[vicsireland] Re: PDF accessibility project

Mark I looked at the below but was unsuccessful in giving feed back 
comments - don't know why! The first document . Gannet-word.pdf
 is the only one I could read, the other two froze, I could get nothing. I 
am using JAWS 8, Adobe 8.1.1 and Word 2003.  I don't know if this makes a 
difference - perhaps! Feel free to pass on my comments.

Maureen.

Here's something worthwhile giving feedback on if you have a spare moment. 
This guy Roger Hudson does some great work on accessibility. He's now 
looking at PDFs and needs some testing input from AT users.

Forwarded from Alan M. Dalton in the NDA:

Hi,

Roger Hudson, an accessibility consultant, has published 3 PDF documents
that he created from Microsoft Word documents. He has asked for people who
use assistive technologies to let him know how accessible each PDF document
is [1]. He created 1 PDF document with Microsoft Word's "Save as PDF"
option. He created another PDF document with Adobe Acrobat 9.0, but didn't
modify its tag order. He created a third PDF document with Adobe Acrobat
9.0, and did modify its tag order.

It sounds like an interesting project.
