Summary : need to change "Confirm before taffing document" setting via Registry keys.
I am working on a deplyable Bot that will automate some tasks in a PDF using Winium. In order to have access to the UI elements within a PDF, I first need to uncheck the "Confirm before tagging document" option found in Preference > Reading > Screan Reader Options > "Confirm...".
In order to make this Bot deployable to all machines, I would need to be able to change this setting programatically, ideally through the windows registry. But I can't seem to find that setting anywhere.
I looked in the Adobe regristry reference... but found nothing
Please let me know if there is a solution to this.

Found it : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\2017\Accessibility\bCheckReadMode
For some weird reason the UI tree within the doc is still inaccessible when opening the doc until I open and close the preference though...
How did you find it? What document did you used to verify this?
I would also check in bCheckReadMode depends on other keys that also may need to be modified.
I ended up looking through all the keys I could find and testing any that had a name and a locTion that might have something to do with what I was looking for... long and frustrating process.
To verify I just closed the acrobat, changed the setting in the registry. Opened acrobat again and looked at the settings in preferences to see if they changed. They did.
hope this helps.
Thank you for sharing that solution.
