Tagged PDF


Vast majority of PDFs that exist and are created daily are not tagged or are not tagged properly and provide just visual representation of the content. This makes the information invisible for screen readers used by visually impaired people or reading software for users with learning disabilities. Tagged PDF allows an easy navigation and accessible presentation of the content in PDF files reading software for users with learning disabilities.

The European Accessibility Act, EPA Section 508, Canada’s Common Look and Feel standard, Britain’s BS 8878, WCAG 2.0 and other regulations and directives diverge accessibility requirements across the countries. This helps businesses and disabled or old people to access and share the information.
