Create accessible PDF with Adobe InDesign CS 5.5 or CS 6 and axaio MadeToTag

This sequence of screen recordings explains and demonstrates how to create accessible PDF using Adobe InDesign CS 5.5 or CS 6 and axaio MadeToTag. The focus of the 8 steps of this tutorial is on the following five core principles:

  • semantic role
  • reading order
  • alternative text for images and graphics
  • contrast
  • metadata

Obviously a recording of a two hour introductory session does not cover all details that are relevant when the goal is a 100% accessible and fully PDF/UA conforming PDF document. Nevertheless, for a surprisingly huge portion of documents following the five core principles listed above will result in almost perfectly accessible PDF documents.
