The PDF Techniques Accessibility Summit’s objective is to establish a broad-based understanding of how PDF files should be tagged for accessibilty. It’s an opportunity to focus on establishing a common set of examples of accessible PDF content, and identify best-practice when tagging difficult cases.
The PDF Techniques Accessibility Summit will identify best-practices in tagging various cases in PDF documents. Questions to be addressed will likely include: the legal ways to tag a nested list, the correct way to caption multiple images, the appropriate way to organize content within headings.
My hospital emailed me a medical records release form as a PDF. They told me to print it, fill it, sign it, scan it and return it to the medical records department, in that order. In 2018? To get the form via email (i.e., electronically), yet be asked to print it? Did the last 20 years just… not mean anything! So I thought I’d be clever. I’d fill it first, THEN print it. Or better yet, never print it, but sign it anyhow, and return it along with a note making the case for improving their workflow. The story continues…

Upon obtaining his PhD, Dr. Wild was responsible for the organization and management of C/S software development at an IT service provider in the banking sector.

Session Description: Founded in 2016 the Cloud Signature Consortium is focussing on the introduction an open specification of interface components enabling trust service providers to deliver the whole spectrum of signing services mentioned in eIDAS to companies and end users including remote signature. The members of the CSC are leading European software companies for electronic signature, trust service providers and Adobe. Being able to add a qualified signature to a PDF document everywhere on every device without using specific hardware like smartcard or card reader forms the motivation of CSC. A major concern is the fully compliance to the eIDAS regulation and thus the referenced ETSI and CEN standards. The presentation gives an overview about the actual status of standardisation i nETSI and CEN as well as the first implementations of the CSC specification in the market. Finally some use cases for qualified remote signing will be described.
