Screen Reader Tech responsiveness in Adobe Pro vs. Adobe Reader


Level 1

I created a custom form using LiveCycle ES2. I am testing the usability of the form in conjunction with Screen Reader Technology (specifically NVDA) in Adobe Professional 9 and Adobe Reader X. The text fields that are read aloud by the Screen Reader while using Adobe Pro, are NOT read aloud while viewing the form in Adobe Reader. Is there a specific solution/adjustment/edit to solve this problem, or is this simply a limitation to using Adobe Reader with Screen Reader Technology?

I have set up the accessibility features in reader, while also selecting the option to "Extend Features in Adobe Reader" while the document is open in Adobe Pro.

I have a few prepopulated, 'read only' fields that are being skipped over by the screen reader as well.
