My guess is the audio is not accessible because it is not navigable. You start at the top and listen to the whole thing, without the ability to skip element to element. If there are links, sounds like they are not keyboard activated.

Subject: [WebAIM] PDF with multimedia/audio
I was sent a PDF of a flyer for training to test for 508 compliance - I have never encountered a PDF like this one before.
It does NOT pass the Adobe Acrobat accessibility checker as nothing is tagged, but the file is read by JAWS. The creator has also imbedded an audio button, "Click to activate," that shares an audio of the flyer content/information.
Does this PDF pass if all the information of the flyer is included in the audio, even though the actual PDF file is not compliant?
