Actually, AT-SPI is implemented in Acrobat Reader for Linux since 7.0, I
believe. I've not had much luck with Reader myself, but then I haven't
tried very hard, nor have I tried recently. Except that it doesn't
expose any structure which might be present in a v. 11.5 pdf, I'm still
using pdftotext.

On a related note, I wonder why Adobe doesn't just open source Reader?
They give it away, why not invite the community into code maintanance?
