For .pdf, the prevalent view of ideal would be to use Windows or the
Mac OS and have Adobe Reader present its concept of a tagged .pdf. How
well does Adobe Reader work in Linux? does it interact w/
Unfortunately, while it's been discussed, pdftex doesn't generate
tagged pdf, so may be a non-starter for this sort of thing (and that's
_if_ Adobe Reader works well w/ screen readers in Linux).

can it be made to work w/ hyperref and tex4ht or something along those
