[Athen] Unusual request

One thing I do is delete the tags from a complex (columns, tables, lists, links, images etc.) PDF. Generally JAWS shows all the flaws when the tags are gone. The bonus is you can then demo the same PDF with tags for comparison.

Good Luck,

This may sound odd, but does anyone have an inaccessible document, PDF image file they would be willing to share? When I convert faculty PDF readings, I save only the accessible file. I need to demonstrate to faculty how image files are not accessible to JAWS and Kurzweil. The Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) committee I m a member of is hosting a Tech Fair this Thursday.
