As Karen mentioned, it is not yet possible to run the Accessibility
Check on the LCD PDF.

To test reading order and to determine what information will be spoken
to a screen-reader, I take the form and save it as Text (Accessible) -
this is under File on the menu bar and then Export. While it is not a
complete test, it does provide a quick check as to what may be error
points if the PDF is to be used to text-to-speech processing.

As it was explained to me, LCD forms are not like Acroforms (Acrobat
forms) and while they both can be displayed by Adobe Acrobat/Reader,
they are fundamentally different. Thus, some of the tools in Acrobat
are not functional with LCD forms.

Take care,
