WebAIM: Blog - Accessibility Improvements in Adobe Acrobat XI | Hindie's AT Tools | Scoop.it

While I often experience my fair share of frustration with Acrobat, it is the only program that I am aware of that makes accessibility improvements with each new version. Acrobat XI is no exception—it includes several new and improved features that make it much easier to create accessible PDF files.
