Hi Loretta and all:

     I have a slightly off topic (specific topic of alt text/forms in PDF) but it may be related.  I was interested lately in reading PDF's that contain equations.  One example is
Richard Feynman's nobel lecture
The Adobe translation tools and accessibility  plugin work well on the text portion, but the equations, as one might guess, get a bit garbled.
I was wondering if there might be a PDF to latex converter perhaps?
Might there be other suggestions?

Have you looked at the document at 


It describes a number of techniques for repairing accessibility problems in 
PDF files.
