AI Assistant may inadvertently provide non-English responses, but these go beyond the intended purpose of the generative AI capability and should not be relied upon at this time.

· Files exceeding 25MB in size
· Files that contain more than 120 pages
· Files with permissions that are configured in a way that prevents processing, such as being password-protected or having the “do not copy” permission enabled
· Files that are scanned PDF documents
