Re: PDF feature form.



Hi Thomas,

Actually, I think you may be mistaken about Adobe and accessibility
support. Have a look at the Windows-eyes home page of gw-micro
(http://www.gwmicro.com) - that company has been working with Adobe to
encourage them to provide a version of their Acrobat reader which
supports MSAA. I have used version 5 of their reader with these
options and its not too bad (for a windows application). 

Note that the default download of Acrobat Reader does not include the
accessibility options - you need to specificly download the version
with these options compiled in. More info at the gw-micro homepage.
