Subject: [Athen] Mac/Accessible PDF compatibility

Dear colleagues,

Could anyone speak to the current status of compatibility between Macintosh computers running VoiceOver and accessible PDFs? Our team has been requested to test a PDF for accessibility and were specifically requested to test on both Windows and Mac with screen reader software. The PDF was created by an outside company who claim the PDF is accessible, but we had a great deal of trouble when we tested it with VoiceOver, both in Preview and Adobe Reader. Any and all information about the current compatibility between Macs and accessible PDFs is greatly appreciated. If you prefer, you may contact me directly at emmth9 at mail.missouri.edu<mailto:emmth9 at mail.missouri.edu>. Thank you for your assistance.

Best Wishes,

Evalyne McInnish
