Fundraiser – PAC 2 with integrated PDF/UA check

On October 10, 2011, the Swiss foundation «Access for all» launched a fund raising campaign for the development of PAC 2.0 – an update to version 1.2 of the free PAC (PDF Accessibility Checker) tool. PAC 2.0 will fully support checking PDFs against the upcoming PDF/UA standard about to be finalized by ISO in the coming weeks. PDF/UA can be described as «WCAG 2.0 for PDF».

Within just five weeks almost 50% of the amount necessary to fund the development of the PAC 2. update have been raised, with Swiss Post being the Platinum sponsor, and several PDF Association members – callas software, Compart, FourPees and NetCentric – as well as axaio software and MediaTailor as Gold sponsors.
