Hello Shubham if you have a pdf file which has a single visible object i.e. the document contains a single Active Accessibility object which is visible on a page, composed of multiple elements, such as text and pictures and you aren't able to scrape individual elements.To fix this, you need to change the document Accessibility reading order, as follows:

  1. In Adobe Reader, open the Edit menu, and click the Change Reading Options option from the Accessibility sub-menu. The Change Reading Options of Current Document window is displayed.
  2. From the Reading Order drop-down, select the Use reading order in raw print stream option. This instructs Adobe Reader to ignore Active Accessibility when reading the document.
  3. In the Reading Mode Options, select the Read the entire document option.
  4. Click the Start button. UIExplorer can now be used to identify individual UI elements on the page.
