PDF and Order

Hi Everyone,

Question about different orders in PDF. I know the tag order is the crucial
order for screen readers, but do you still look at the order in the order
panel? Is it still needed today?

I have done extensive research and found that some people think that the
order shown in the order panel is outdated, as most people don't use reflow.

The order in the order panel should match the tag order, but in my
experience it can be off in places and then the fun begins. Most times I
get lucky and both are pretty much the same, but then some documents are
not fun.

I still think the order shown in the order panel is important, but am
wondering do you think it is still relevant? Relevant in terms of spending
time to correct that order...
