Re: wich Acrobat pro?

If you want to edit the tags or make forms, you'll need Acrobat Pro. If you need to create tags in documents that are created then Acrobat Standard will do that. Simple documents may be able to be tagged correctly without edits, but editing tags is common. If you have a few people in a shop that create documents and one who proofs the accessibility and edits tagged as needed you might use standard for all but the one proofing and editing the tags.

If you are working with tagged PDF you'll need Acrobat Pro rather than Acrobat Standard.
