In Adobe Professional I can add editable header and footer which will be skipped by the text-to-speech module. How can I achive this with latex?

Do you have an official link to this feature? It would help searching for a LaTeX implementation. Personally, I don't think it got implemented for LaTeX yet. – Martin Scharrer Nov 23 '11 at 15:01

It is possible using technique called tagged pdf. Unfortunately, there is no support on higher level for it in LaTeX. Patch for pdftex exists, some examples of the usage are included in the file f4.zip, more information can be found in Ross Moore's article, he also talked about the tagged PDF at last and current year Tug conference. But you need to recompile pdftex by yourself, these changes aren't included in pdftex from TeX live.

Better support is included in Context, there are some examples. This also means, that support for the tagged PDF can be achieved with the luaTeX, but I don't know how.
