On my older eink Kindle 3, though, reading the PDFs is a bit klunky. Opening the Docs section on the Fire shows them arranged on the shelves of a "bookshelf". Many PDF browsers will show the first page of the PDF as the icon for the file, but not the Fire.

Jul 11, T Whichever approach you take, if you are interested in the accessibility of your PDFs, the rest of this document will help you understand the issues. PDF is a format designed for printing and displaying on the screen, so it often does not work well with speech and other assistive technologies.
To solve Problem 1 images you have to do OCR - there is no way round that. But even if all the text in your PDF file is text, not images of text, you still have Problems 2, 3 and 4 reading order, structure, zoom. To solve these problems Adobe added features called tags. These tell Adobe Reader what order should be used for the text and provides chapters, headings and other styles. So a tagged document is much more accessible for reading. To be exact, a document must have tags to be read.
These tags provide the information to allow reading order, structure and zooming to work. However, most documents are not tagged. Adobe Reader will therefore attempt to work out tags when it opens these documents. This has two problems: That dialogue that comes up when you open a PDF file, "Preparing document for reading" - that is Reader working out the tags. A hundred-page PDF file, which is really quite common, can take a few minutes on a fast machine, which is very off-putting if you just want to quickly check out a document.
Second, it may not be very accurate. Columns, textboxes, and captions can all confuse Reader when it tries to create a reading order. No attempt at structure is made. Reflowing the PDF file may not work well. Finally, the tags worked out by Reader are not stored anywhere for future use, so if you close and open the PDF again then the same process must be followed. It is clearly much better to define the tags beforehand, rather than leaving it to Adobe Reader.
In fact, this is essentially what is meant by "creating an accessible PDF" — it means "adding correct document tags so reading order, structure and zooming are all correct" although OCR'ing of images is required in some cases too, of course. Note that Google takes account of reading order when it indexes PDF files it finds online, which means that your PDF files will work better and produce better search results if you take the time to set tags to identify the reading order!
The option is not there if there are no bookmarks in the document. These are examples of structural semantic tags in the document.
They are mainly of use to screenreader users, who can use them to quickly skip around the document using shortcut keys, and mouse users, who can easily explore the document tree and work out where they want to read. Fast Web View enables PDF files displayed in a web browser to start displaying before the whole file is loaded. The file is structured so that the first few pages can be displayed as soon as they are received. This requires some re-ordering of the PDF file, but does not necessarily have any impact on accessibility.
However, some tools may, at the same time as processing the PDF file so that it can support Fast Web View, discard all the tags to "optimise" the PDF file, making it smaller and faster to download to view - but losing all the accessibility information. The punctuation of a PDF file affects how usable it is.
A fully-tagged document correctly identifies paragraphs and headings and other text structures, so assistive technology can punctuation speech and output correctly - highlighting sentence by sentence for example.
In documents where tags are missing, or the document has been transformed or lost its tags, Adobe Reader and other tools are better able to identify sentences if they end with full stops. This mostly applies to headings, which generally do not have full stops at the end of them.
This can mean that Adobe Reader gets confused and runs the heading into the next paragraph, which can be confusing to the user. Full stops help your document read correctly no matter what happens to it. Forms allow users to fill in textboxes and select buttons and checkboxes in the PDF document, and even submit it to an online service.
For accessibility the form elements should be tagged to indicate their name and function, and their order should be specified for clarity and to enable tabbing around the form in a sensible order. If you do not provide tags for forms then Reader will try to infer the tab order from the document structure. If "Use document structure for tab order when no explicit tab order is provided" is unchecked then Reader will go across the page and down, or down the page and across, or some other order specified in the PDF file.
This is generally less accessible, since you don't have the menu, and the space given over to the display of the PDF must be smaller, and many access programs will not work with the PDF when it is within the browser. This is especially the case for browsers other than Internet Explorer. This means Adobe Reader will pop up when you open a PDF, which may be more confusing, but is simpler.
The Multimedia tab of Preferences has an Accessibility Options section. These apply to embedded video content and provide options for subtitles and other features. This lets you understand how accessible a given PDF is, in the context of someone requiring text access through a screenreader or other A.
It is assumed you are using Adobe Reader on Windows. So these will always remain inaccessible for anyone requiring text access, that is. First, Reader sees if there is a "screenreader" running. This means a program that has told Windows that it needs special access to content so it can read it out, so programs like ClaroRead count as well as JAWS and WindowEyes.
If there is no screenreader running, it just displays the PDF and nothing more is done. Second, it checks the PDF file for any text that is not tagged. This doesn't include text that is stored as pictures of text. And it doesn't matter if any of the text is tagged: So a completely-tagged document can become "untagged" if one person edits the PDF file in Acrobat and adds one caption or textbox. If a PDF file is completely tagged then nothing more is done. Third, it processes the PDF file and adds tags for PDF files where this is needed - documents containing any untagged text.
This is when you see one of these dialogues:. Again, you will not see either of these dialogues if all the text in the document is already tagged or you do not have a "screenreader" running. You can check whether a document is tagged by opening it in Adobe Reader and going to File, Properties. Fourth, it takes the tags, generated or originally in the document, and works out the reading order technically it build the document object model.
Even for documents that started off fully tagged this can take a long time. Also, you don't necessarily see any progress dialogue if the document was tagged: Adobe Reader may stop responding while it is working, but there is no other sign.
You can't get it to read, of course. Note that while by default Adobe Reader uses a reading order if one was already defined, the user can change this. If "Reading Order" is set to "Tagged reading order" then the pre-defined reading order is used.
But if "Reading Order" is set to "Infer reading order from document" then the reading order worked out by Adobe Reader will be used. However, these two options are only visible where you have opened a tagged PDF file. When Adobe Reader opens an untagged PDF file where it has to work out the tags itself it hides the "Tagged reading order" option from the four "Reading Order" options and defaults instead to "Infer reading order from document".
You have to open a tagged document to check that "Tagged reading order" is indeed the default for tagged documents. When the document has been fully-tagged then it is ready to be read aloud. Reading order is fully-determined.
Structure semantics , like sentences and paragraphs and headings, has been identified, and bookmarks identified. If the document is to be zoomed it can be reflowed in a sensible pattern see Chapter 4. At a technical level, the external interfaces used by A. Again, these all depend on the tags of the document.
