Hi all, our campus is encouraging all units to stop purchasing Adobe Pro,
and instead switch to FoxIT Pro. We primarily use Adobe Pro for OCR as
well as editing book scans and publisher files. Does anyone here have
experience with FoxIT? How is its accessibility with screen readers? I
understand that the ability of blind people to edit PDFs is limited anyway,
but is navigating the program interface accessible? Can it perform OCR as
well as Adobe, and handle all the book editing functions? Thanks for your
