Accessibility in SumatraPDF plugin

Accessibility features are considered experimental and accessibility is not enabled at the moment in the SumatraPDF plugin.


Microsoft Narrator

Known issue: Sometimes Narrator does not read the selection. This seems to be a focus related problem and selecting another window and then back the SumatraPDF window may fix the problem.
