Hello Adobe, does anybody actually read these forums?
I've been a testing your version nine product for deployment within our company, and find this known problem still hanging around two years down the road.
Look it's real simple: Just because a user utilizes voice recognition doesn't mean they're blind. It would be so bloody simple for you guys to provide a radio button to simply disable assistive technology and get rid of the screen reader nag dialog.
Why don't you just do it?

You will have to comment in the forum for suggestions. Adobe does not generally hang out here, that is why it is called a user forum.
Sent a bug report on this via our IT department.
Perhaps that will work...
For Acrobat X, at least, you can disable accessibility features by searching your programs files for Adobe->-Acrobat 10.0 -> plugins -.ReadOutLoud.api, and Adobe->-Acrobat 10.0 -> plugins -MakeAccessible.api. Rename the api's OLDReadOutloud.api and OLDMakeAccessible.api. Fixed the problem for me. It may work for older versions of Acrobat as well.
This issue started happening to me when I installed an old Wacom Intuos 3, then installed all the drivers. I'm not sure if they are
I haven't figured out how to turn off the settings, but I did learn that one way stop it from *automatically* happening (if you set it to do the tagging by default, like I accidentally did), you go to Edit > Preferences > General > Reset All Warnings.
I'm still working on how to get the popup from not happening without having to disable a plugin.
Guess what, I also have a Wacom tablet installed.
The tablet enables the on-screen keyboard, so Adobe Reader probably thinks the user is impaired.
To remove "Content Preparation Progress" when opening a file: Go into Edit tab -> Preferences -> Accessibility and uncheck "Enable assistive technology support"
