PDF for accessability


From: Cathy Mar

We have upgraded our software to Acrobat 6.0. Does anyone have a step
by step process to create an accessible PDF tagged doc and saving it for
other versions of Acrobat readers? We've run into problems of using
paper capture then running accessability checker. Once we've viewed
the tagged document and fixed the images tags, we will run it through
the accessibility checker again. It will say that there is nothing
wrong with the document. The last step is to "reduce file size" for
version 5.0 or later. Are we missing something?

Also, having problems with netscape 4.79 using Acrobat plug in. Works
on windows 2000/Netscape 4.79/Acrobat 5.0. Works on some machines and
others the page is blank...We also test to version 4.0 readers.

Any information will greatly be appreciated.
