Re: TDF Testing

Susan, it may not be an ideal solution, but we test in a couple of ways.

We use the built-in Adobe Acrobat Pro checker as our first step. Version
10 of Acrobat Pro has a Section 508 check option. Version 11 is, I believe,
a bit stricter.
We do a manual check of the tags and reading order.
We test with JAWS and NVDA screen readers
and we also use the PAC PDF

After running all of those tests, we still cross our fingers.
Hope that helps some.
