It used to be, but it seems based on some research I found this morning, they are no longer compatible: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1677261. That being said, has anyone else identified this as an issue and perhaps sought out an alternate method?

Forgive my ignorance in this area but is VO accessible with Adobe Reader for Mac? I never had the need to read a PDF on a Mac before.

Subject: [WebAIM] Adobe Forms and VoiceOver

We're working on testing all our Adobe Forms for the employee benefits section of our site from an accessibility standpoint. I'm able to test and confirm them on a Windows computer using NVDA, but when my coworker uses VoiceOver on her Mac laptop using Adobe Acrobat, the form isn't read at all. Has anyone else encountered issues with VoiceOver on a Mac with Adobe Acrobat? If so, were you able to resolve the issues?
