Understanding the Concept of "Accessible PDF"

Common Ways for the Creation of Accessible PDF Documents

    There are two common methods for the creation of accessible PDF documents:

    • The direct method based on source format:
      If you want to create accessible PDF documents with authoring software
      like Microsoft Word, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Acrobat,
      or if you want to convert a structured format like HTML or XML into PDF,
      you usually click the magic “Create PDF” button.

      If the conversion software does a good job, the necessary internal tag tree
      is created automatically in a high quality.

    • The indirect method based on existing PDF file:
      If the source file is not available or if the authoring software doesn’t do
      a good conversion job, you can take the PDF without tags,
      generally a web-PDF, and rework it.

      During this process you tag every relevant content element and
      add some additional accessibility features like alt text to figures.
      For doing this you need a software tool, a PDF editor,
      that is capable to create and edit PDF tags.

    But do not expect too much.
    Only very few software programs offer the possibility to create high-quality
    PDF/UA compliant documents out of the box or at least with less effort.

    This is when you need help by axesPDF tools to finally get a
    100% PDF/UA compliant document in a few minutes:

    • Direct method / MS Word source format: axesWord

    • Indirect method / Any existing PDF: axesPDF
