Overview of Accessible PDF/UA Checkers
December 13, 2018
Event website

This one-hour webinar will review the most commonly used accessibility checkers currently available to individuals creating accessible PDF documents.  During this webinar we will review the following checkers: Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat Professional and the online PDF Accessibility Checker (PAC 3.0).

While properly constructed tags are essential for an accessible PDF, tags alone are not enough. Some accessibility checkers review only tags while others also check hidden aspects of the document to ensure they are fully accessible. Because these checkers can only check against a list of digital defaults, human inspection is also a very important part of the remediation process.
