Re: Automated Checking of PDF Documents?

I can't seem to get the radio buttons in Adobe to act like html. It
appears to read each with the group name. Is there a page you send me
to for this one issue?

Note: I usually am asked to help fix files and rarely set up any adobe
files. I could not get the radio buttons to read individual buttons.
The few I do straight for a clean word code - check good in 7, good in
the first adobe check 8, but always bad in 508 adobe 8.

Not exactly sure what you mean - I can create PDF forms that include
radio buttons where both the question and answer can be read with AT. I
have been able to do this with both Acrobat Pro and/or LiveCycle

How are you authoring your documents? Can you provide a URL to a PDF
