This is an untagged PDF so it needs to be tagged. This is one of the major reasons “infer reading order from document” doesn’t work…it doesn’t work.

The document needs to be tagged, then someone has to go down the Tags Tree to make sure that all of the content that needs a Tag has a Tag, That the Tags are correct for the type of content they relate to and that the document is in a logical reading order.

Cheers, Karen

Subject: [Athen] Fixing a PDF

Hello, I have a PDF flyer that, when I read it, the lines are out of order. I believe it's two pages side-by-side and the screen reader is reading a line from the left, then aline from the right, then going back and forth. I'm unsure of how to fix this. I'm attaching the flyer so you can see what I mean, but I'm only asking for the best advice on how to fix it. We have Adobe Acrobat Pro and ABBYY. Thanks!
