Thanks Jonathan, I tried what you suggested but even though there were
two links within the Tag none were recognized using this. Is there
another step if they are not shown?

Locate and select the tag in the tags tree where you want the first link
to appear.
Choose Find from the Tags panel > options menu or right click A Find
dialog will appear.
Choose unmarked links from the Find drop down Choose the Find button If
the desired link is shown, Choose Tag Element A link OBJR element It
will be added to the tag you had selected.
Repeat for each link.

Subject: [WebAIM] Accessible Hyperlinks in PDF

Dear Group, I am having great difficulty making the hyperlinks in my PDF
forms recognized by AT. The forms start in Word and then I make it into
a PDF. In PDF the hyperlinks work via mouse, but are not recognized by
JAWS nor NVDA. I have searched for ways to make them work, but all of
the techniques I have found online don't seem to work. I am using Adobe
Acrobat Professional XI.

Can someone give me the exact steps to take to make the hyperlinks
recognized in the PDF and work via the keyboard, or point me in the
right direction? I would REALLY appreciate the help.

Thank you!
