Very interesting report on a briefiing. Read all the way down the page. About half-way down many specific tips, tools, and techniques come into the discussion. isolani – Web Accessibility: RNIB Media Briefing on Accessible PDFs

Here’s a sample: “When assessing the accessibility of a PDF, ask yourself these series of questions:

  • Is the PDF a scanned image?
  • Is it intended to be a form?
  • Is the PDF tagged
  • Are the items properly tagged?
    • Verify the reading order
    • Add proper tagging (e.g. to figures and tables)
    • Add alternative description to graphics
  • Have I missed something? Run an accessible checker and make the recommended and appropriate repairs suggested.”
