Re: Cannot read PDF documents with NVDA

I yesterday went on the UK site london Elects to find out detailed results from the recent election. The main mayoral election pdf worked fin with nice easy to use tables etc. The london wide election results were in an untagged pdf, and it looked blank in adobe and when text was removed it was all junbled together with hardly any spaces and in the wrong order.
The local constituancy pdf, was just a picture of a bit of paper with no text in it at all which adobe reader said was also malformed.

Obviously those who make pdfs just do not understand what they are doing.
