What does it mean for a mobile PDF reader to focus on accessibility? How does a PDF presentation optimized for accessibility differ from a strictly PDF/UA conforming presentation? What challenges and drawbacks with untagged PDFs come from this focus?

In this session we'll share the lessons we've learned to date in implementing a PDF/UA-centric mobile reader: the challenges we've faced in creating experiences that attempt to delight readers in a variety of different situations; the considerations in transforming PDF/UA for re-presentation in different forms; and the mistakes we may have made along the way.
