Re: A Couple Questions about Adobe Reader and PDFs

This setting also appears in the adobe Accessibility settings. For
screen reader users in particular The adobe reader should be used rather
than viewing the document in the browser. I suspect that allowing the
document to open using the user's windows file associations is the best
option. I however do not know the specifics for doing this so I hope
someone will elaborate.
