Re: Probably OT: Acrobat XI accessibility

Thanks Jonathan. I can at least now get to the Tags panel, which I
didn't realise was hidden. And I can automatically add tags and then
edit them. As for the rest: splitting a line of text up into several
table headers and such, I'm clueless and would love some training.

So if anyone knows of a trainer who can teach a screenreader user how
to use Acrobat efficiently, then I'd love to hear from you.

Best, Lynn
