Dear all,

This is in continuation to our last communication related with *Accessibility
of Pdf document.* As discussed last time, we have now completed the first
prototype version of the same and we are making it available for your
testing and valuable comments/feedback. As mentioned last time, we convert
the PDF file into HTML format and open the same automatically in Firefox.

Enclosed with this email is the ReadMe file which explains the steps to
download, install and run this enhancement. Please try out the same and give
us your valuable feedback.

We have tested it at our end by different teams and have found that it works
well in most cases. Some places where we feel work is required are as

   - Sometimes Orca in not able to read header and footer of page
   - Some character combinations are displayed as garbage like 'ft', 'tt'
   - Content in table format is spoken by orca but it does not say the row
   and column reference. Means a user can not find out that orca is reading
   table content. (as orca does table reading in openoffice writer)

We are working on these. Waiting to hear more from all.

With regards
Leena C
