Untagged pdf files can be a nightmare with screen readers as reading order can get screwed up. Text or html would be much easier for screen reader users.

Could you make an HTML version of the manual as well? I'm asking this because my screen reader doesn't like the PDF format. The PDF thing opens correctly, but then the structure of the manual gets messed up. I don't know whether this is caused by Acrobat Reader or by the screen reader itself.
