If this is an XDP form note that with ES4 SP1 Designer there is a compliancy checker available and is found in the Tools>Macro menu
This macro only is present in the english version of Designer I believe.
Thanks, based on your info I have found that the ES2 version I have came with my adobe pro x 9 install. I have since upgraded to pro x 10 but it's still lifecycle es2. ES4 has to be bought as a separate product, also when you upgrade to adobe pro 11 lifecycle goes away so you MUST buy ES4 for $299 per user.
I have also figured out that a document created with any version of lifecycle CANNOT be edited on the PDF side of the house.
So the document I'm working with (it was created with lifecycle es2) cannot be made 508 compliant. This is due to the accessibility error I'm receiving that I cannot fix. Also I cannot correct the document reading order. In other words I can't do anything to this document in PDF which is the only place I have to do the accessibility check.
If my customer wants to use lifecycle in the future they will have to buy ES4, then I can do the accessibility check on that side of the house.
Or you can get the ES4 free ig you upgrade. http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/upgrade-livecycle-designer-acrobat-xi.ht ml
Not sure if you fit the qualifications but thought I would pass this along
