[pdftex] How to set "Read Out Loud" tags using latex?

Adobe Reader can read out loud the text contained in pdf docyments
Further, using Adobe Acrobat 7 (not sure about earlier versions) one
can change the order of the reading and eliminate some parts
Is it possible to work with these tags while generating foo.pdf from foo.tex?
The main reason: making presentation (say with beamer) one usually
builds the frame which consists of few slides (pdf pages) containing
item1, item1 and item2, item1 and item2 and item3, etc (more
complicated constructions are possible). Now if one asks AR to "read
out loud" the resulting foo.pdf it reads
frame header, item1, framer footer, frame header, item1, item2, framer footer,
frame header, item1, item2, item3, framer footer, and so one
Using Acrobat I can remove (from the reading list) unwanted
headers/footers slide by slide, and item1 at slide2, slide3 and item2
at slide3 so the whole thing works as good as text-to-speech can...
but there should be an easier way (does not mean that it actually is,
just should be :-)
Thank you in advance
