> Enclosed with this email is the ReadMe file which explains the steps to

>    - 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.

Quick question, do you have any patches on top of the poppler you use?
