Hi Rabab,

I'll be more than happy to take a look, but in addition you may want to take advantage of these two tools (both of them free of charge):

- PAC 2 (PDF Accessibility Checker 2), runs on Windows (does not require Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader), download from www.access-for-all.ch; it is **the** checking tool for accessible PDF, based on the PDF/UA standard (PDF/UA = universally accessible PDF)

- callas pdfGoHTML (for Mac and Windows): a plug-in for Acrobat Pro (yes, you will have to already own Acrobat Pro 8, 9, X or XI to run callas pdfGoHTML); it turns the content of a tagged PDF file into a structured view (and various other views with disabilities in mind) and makes it very straightforward to find out whether the tagging structure is any good; it can be downloaded from www.callassoftware.com
