    axesPDF® QuickFix - the professional remediation tool for accessible PDF
    that comply with PDF/UA-1 (ISO 14289-1) and WCAG 2.0


    axesPDF® QuickFix saves time and nerves for checking and
    fixing accessible PDFs in one step.

    With available mainstream programs in the fields of word processing,
    desktop publishing or PDF editing it is not possible to implement
    lean PDF accessibility workflows.
    axesPDF QuickFix fills this gap.

    axesPDF QuickFix is for all accessible PDFs (and Workflows)
    - you need it especially for accessible PDF documents created
    with Adobe Indesign or Acrobat.

    No matter if you create an accessible PDF to be published with
    InDesign, Word or Acrobat, axesPDF® QuickFix is a short cut
    if you want to achieve PDF/UA conformance.


    axesPDF QuickFix as short cut
    The checking & remediation tool axesPDF QuickFix helps accessible
    document authors reaching fully PDF/UA compliant documents with ease.
    You can use it at the end of your InDesign, Acrobat or Word workflow.

    Usually you start with the PDF/UA check.
    Maybe you know it already from the PDF Accessibility Checker (PAC) 2.
    Then you look at the errors, choose the corresponding commands and fix them
    - in most cases only with one click.


    Features
    axesPDF® QuickFix is a box full of tools for
    the professional quality assurance of accessible PDF.
    All tools are great timesavers and enable a lean correction workflow.

      User interface and buttons - an overview
      1-click-fixing buttons
      - axesPDF® QuickFix offers a lot of 1-click-fixing buttons like:
      • Mark all non-tagged elements in the document as artifacts with one click
      • Insert missing spaces (between words) - on the content level
      • Add IDs to every Note-Tags
      • Add link descriptions
      • Add the PDF/UA-identifier


      Complete PDF/UA-check - automated & human
      Some PDF/UA requirements can be checked by a machine.
      But there are also requirements that have to be checked by a human.
      Therefore both is necessary:
      an automated PDF/UA-check and an additional visual evaluation of the PDF.

        All machine-checkable checkpoints
        In axesPDF® QuickFix an automated PDF/UA-check (Tab Checker) is included.
        It covers all machine-checkable checkpoints of the Matterhorn Protocol.

        Tools for the visual evaluation
        For the additional visual evaluation - essential part of every PDF/UA-check -
        there are two complementary tools in axesPDF® QuickFix:
        • Ribbon tab: Preview:
          • a simplified structure view for a quick visual evaluation
            (for example: evaluation of the semantics)
        • Ribbon Tab: Logical Structure Tree:
          • an expert view of the Logical Document Structure for a
            specific diagnosis and check of the logical order in
            combination with a parallel document view.


      Interactive report of all PDF/UA issues with help how to fix it
      Diagnosis made easy: Clickable issues in the accessibility report lead
      directly to the corresponding locations in the document view and
      in the Logical Structure Tree.

      By using the F1-key you can get useful hints, how to fix a specific PDF/UA issue.


      Fixing PDF/UA issues - in many cases by using 1-click-fixing buttons
      What is the use of a detailed accessibility report anyhow,
      if the fixing of the issues is much to time-consuming or complicated
      - at least for an average user?

      For such cases axesPDF® QuickFix offers a lot of
      1-click-fixing buttons like for example:
      • Add PDF/UA identifier
      • Reset Zooms
      • Set Contents key of Link annotations
      • Set Tab Order

      If you cannot fix the issue with one click,
      you find task panes in axesPDF® QuickFix,
      that help you to fix the issue - like for example:
      • Add Bookmarks
      • Create Destinations
      • Fix Roles
      • Insert Spaces
      • Remove Language Assignments
      • Rename Tag
