Fast, Reliable Services for PDF Accessibility

PDF documents can present some special problems for accessibility but a variety of techniques are available, either in the original authoring tool or in Adobe tools, for ensuring accessibility.

A document that passes the Adobe full accessibility check could still be difficult for a person with disabilities to use and might not meet accessibility guidelines and best practices. Interactive Accessibility goes beyond the automated check to look at the following:

Content order for reflow and testing at 200% magnification with reflow

Tag structure for content reading order

Appropriate use of document structure in tags

Appropriate handling of images and their alternative text

Correct and appropriate tagging and labeling of form fields, and correct tab order in forms

Proper tagging of links, lists and tables to ensure proper reading of content for screen reader users

Verify that no content splits between tags to allow easier navigation for assistive technology users
