Re: Double Tags

OK, a little more description :). First I create Word documents (Word 2010). I then open Adobe Acrobat Pro XI to create a PDF form from a the Word file. When asked I choose the Word document and click on 'Open' and 'Continue'. So now I have a PDF and if I click on the tag icon (looks like a price tag) I see my tag tree for the document on the left hand side. I click on the plus signs to expand; 'Tags', and then 'Sect' and I see all my 'Tags'. I click on the plus sign in front of any 'Tag' and it expands to show whats inside. There is an icon that looks like a file box (cardboard box with lid) and it shows the content of the Tag. It could be a <Normal> tag, or an <H1> tag, it doesn't matter. Each tag has two file box icons with the exact same content. So this means that my screen reader (both JAWS and NVDA) reads the content twice (because it is there twice in the tag). The only time it does not do this is if there is a hyperlink in the paragraph.

I don't believe images are allowed on this forum, but can send one to a personal account if I have not described what is happening sufficiently enough. Please let me know.

You will have to provide some details about how you create your PDFs, and what tool you use to look at the PDFs such that you see certain icons (and exactly where you see them), in order to trigger useful replies. Also, what screenreader are you using?
