Re: Probably OT: Acrobat XI accessibility

Lynn, f6 will move between the navigation panels and document pane. There is very good keyboard support in the tags tree. F2 will edit tag names. The applications key can be used to open the context menu. Sometimes you can select text in the document with the screen reader and then tag with the create text from selection option in the tags tree. F4 open the navigation if it is closed - it will stay open once you open it. So there is a fair amount you can do with a screen reader but you will be limited by the very nature of examining visual content, writing alt text, and content that is not tagged at all.
