Hi

I just got a mail related to bug 839915.
It seems that visual impairment people are running quite often in this
issue, so we could improve accessibility by fixing this.

Does anyone know a better workaround for this than just using another
application to print?

Regards,
Jonas

Hi Jonas,

well, pdf.js has lots of other accessibility issues, like it not using
PDF's accessibility tags or PDF/UA at all. pdf.js is a third-party library
Firefox includes for convenience, but it cannot go beyond the very basics.
I suggest that, if someone needs some advanced PDF processing, they should
definitely install Adobe Reader, which also gives the added benefit that,
if a PDF file contains tags, they are also used.

Marco

Might also be useful to encourage implementation of accessibility features
into PDF.js ?

Best Regards,
Silvia.
