I have been faced with the task of making generated PDFs and Excels ADA-compliant. There are many issues present, listed below:

1. The reading order does not translate well to subsequent pages (see attached example). The image should be the first thing read on EVERY page, and the blurb at the end of the document should be the LAST thing read. In the attached sample, the blurb is read at the end because of a incorrect hack I did to designate it as the end of table (the blurb should NOT be tagged as part of the table). All elements have been ordered correctly in the template. The reading order must be consistent across ALL pages. I used latest version of both JAWS and NVDA.

2. The heading on the next page gets tagged as part of the table on the previous page. The heading should be separate from the data.

3. How can I mark a data table column header as a header (e.g. TH) in Excel? I only see tags for PDF and not for Excel.

Please let me know what I can do to solve this issue. I already tried upgrading the Jasper version to no avail.

Edit: Our company uses Community Edition.
