How to disable the Accessibility Setup Assistant on first run for Acrobat DC Pro. Our Windows 10 systems all have speech to text enabled, which the adobe installer assumes all the users are disabled and it runs the ASA. This is NOT the case and causes much confusion for our end users. We basically have to walk them through opening Adobe the first time on a person by person basis.

How can we turn this off?

We use the Customization Wizard but haven't found settings in there.

Try turning it off with the Registry Panel in the Adobe Customization Wizard.

Accessibility

bEnableAT

Data typeboolean: DWORD value > REG_DWORD
Default1
Version #11.0.04
HKCU PathAccess
HKLM PathNot lockable
SummaryToggles assistive technology on and off.
DetailsThis preference enables certain workflows when assistive technology such as JAWS is detected. When on, dialogs appear that asks users if they would like to use the setup assistant, that states "preparing document for reading" when processing untagged documents, and asks user if they want to run OCR for pages that are only scanned images. Possible values include:
  • 0: Don't enable assistive technology.
  • 1: Enable assistive technology.
GUI mappingEdit > Preferences > Accessibility > Enable assistive technology support
