Solutions to preflight, correct and repurpose PDF files for

Verify compliance with PDF/UA.
PDF/UA validation always requires
machine check and semantic checks.

Important to always consider for conformance validation
against the ISO Standard PDF/UA:

PDF/UA conformance requires validation of
both syntax and semantic.

The Matterhorn Protocol specifies a common set of
31 "Checkpoints" with 136 failure conditions, whereof
- 89 failure conditions can be checked by software, and
- 47 failure conditions usually require human judgment.

      callas pdfaPilot - PDF/UA Validation Report - Successful - Picture

      The PDF document did pass the software check.
      It remains to also make a human judgement
      before it can be declared as an "accessible PDF".

      - PDF/UA validation failure:
      callas pdfaPilot - PDF/UA Validation Report - Unsuccessful/Failure - Picture

      The PDF document did not pass the software check.
      Thus the PDF document is not PDF/UA conformant and
      is NOT an "accessible PDF".
