Make PDF Accessible

We Create PDF/UA Compliant


What is Accessible PDF?

An accessible PDF is a document that adheres to accessibility standards, significantly enhancing readability for users with disabilities who rely on screen reader software.

For a PDF to be considered accessible, it must meet specific technical criteria, including proper heading structure, hyperlinks, alt text for images, appropriate colors, correct fonts, easy table navigation, lists, and more.

What is PDF Remediation?

PDF remediation is the process of making a PDF accessible and ensuring it meets accessibility standards like PDF/UA or WCAG. It involves employing various techniques to enhance accessibility, ensuring your content is accessible to all users.

Adding Tags to PDF

A significant part of making the PDF document accessible is to ensure the PDF is tagged. A tagged PDF includes an underlying tag tree which clearly defines the structure of the PDF document. Tags allow screen readers to read and navigate the PDF. PDFix allows you to very quickly and easily add tags to a PDF using the “Autotag” feature.

Ensuring PDF/UA Compliance

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and PDF/UA standards provide comprehensive guidance for making PDFs accessible. As a member of the PDF Association, PDFix supports compliance with PDF standards that align with legal requirements.
