Acrobat XI (pronounced “Acrobat Eleven”) is coming soon, and with it a host of new accessibility features that will help authors produce more accessible PDF documents, with less effort.

Key improvements in Acrobat include the addition of the Make Accessible Action, enhancements to the Touch Up Read Order Tool, and improvements to the accessibility checking tool to guide authors testing against WCAG 2.0 and PDF/UA.

The Acrobat team has more information about accessibility in Acrobat XI posted, and more information is coming soon.

    I wish the videos about Acrobat XI accessibility (and other launch videos) were captioned.

      Me too! I’ve raised the issue.
