Acrobat 5.0 talks, meets Section 508

Adobe Systems Inc. has geared up its Acrobat 5.0 document portability software for Section 508 compliance, digital signatures and reading aloud to users.

Version 5.0 saves in Portable Document Format, Rich Text Format, Hypertext Markup Language, Extensible Markup Language or Adobe Forms Data Format.

There are multiple types of permissions and passwords for accessibility products such as screen readers or braille displays. Rick Brown, the product manager at Adobe Systems, said Acrobat 5.0 will come out next month for about $249 per standalone copy for Microsoft Windows or IBM OS/2 platforms.
