[Athen] Controlling untagged document prompt with Adobe Reader

Hi Tim,

I finally got my Adobe Reader 7.0 working and looked for the setting to turn
off the document prompt in Reader. It appears that the same setting in
Adobe Acrobat works for Adobe Reader (someone was thinking!).

To turn off the prompt completely in Reader, perform the following steps:
1. Open Adobe Reader and select "Edit" on the menu bar. Choose

2. Choose the "Reading" category in the left pane.

3. On the right side of the window, you will see a category called
"Screen-Reader Options". Uncheck the box marked "Confirm before tagging
documents". Hit Ok.

That should take care of the issue.

Take care,

I've searched FAQs on both the H-J and the Adobe sites and have not found an
answer to my question: Is there a way to toggle the untagged document
prompt off in Reader? I know it can be bypassed by hitting Escape but is
there a way to instruct it not to prompt me at all?
