Subject: RE: [office] Accessibility Question on ODF 1.O PDF file

Thanks Patrick!

  In fact the problems have already been pointed out and Scott McGrath is working with someone from Adobe to rectify the issues. We
want to make sure that our invited experts will actually be able to use the form.

> Greetings!
> Since there is an accessibility question with regard to the 
> OASIS membership PDF file, I opened the ODF 1.0 document in 
> Acrobat to check on accessibility.
> The Accessibility Quick Check reports:
> "This document is not structured so the reading order may not 
> be correct. Try different reading orders using the Reading 
> Preferences panel."
> I tried the Read Aloud option with both the default setting, 
> Infer reading order from document (recommended), and 
> Left-to-right, top-to-bottom reading order.
> I tried reading the title page and page 32, which starts with a table.
> The built-in Adobe reader read both pages but I would be hard 
> pressed to say that its reading of the table was very useful. 
> There was, for example, no pause between the text in the last 
> cell on one row and the text in the first cell on the next row.
> That may be the expected behavior but I am curious what 
> difference, if any, having structure embedded in the Adobe 
> document would make.
> Can someone more familiar with the impact of including 
> structure in PDF on accessibiliity shed some light on that question?
> Hope everyone is having a great day!
