Hi All,

 

I'm using Adobe Pro DC with JAWS to validate accessibility but it does not read items tagged with <Form> tags in the PDF. However, JAWS works just fine for my coworkers using the same Adobe Pro DC version.

 

Is there a specific setting or update that may be causing the issue? I compared my settings with my coworkers and they apInterestingly, Adobe Reader reads the PDF just fine. Thoughts?

Clarification...JAWS reads some items with Form tags but not all. The items not being read are numbers.

Issue resolved. I needed the "Classic" version of Adobe Reader Pro DC and not the "Perpetual" version. Reads just fine with JAWS for PDFs. 

 

Thank you!
