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.Modernizing PDF Techniques for Accessibility
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.Refried PDF
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?

PDF/UA, like PDF itself, is internally complex, but used correctly, actually makes things easier.
PDF software runs on almost every desktop and mobile device. Millions of servers worldwide create, stamp, append, search, extract and otherwise produce or consume PDF files every second of every day. PDF technology is everywhere.
On May 14 – 16 2018, the center of PDF technology will be in Berlin for PDF Days Europe, held at Berlin’s Hotel Steglitz International. The subject: PDF technology; standards, advisories, best-practices, ideas, opportunities and the future.
