  • – W3C WCAG AA (Web Consortium guidelines)
  • – PDF/UA (ISO standard)

  • – Mandate 376 – EU Public Procurement of ICT Products and Services
  • – AODA (Ontario Accessibility Act)
  • – International Disability Discrimination Acts (DDAs) (EU, Australia, etc)

The current options available to companies to make their PDF documents accessible are

One
Convert the PDF into an alternative format such as HTML, losing the benefits of the PDF format
Two
Use the accessibility features included in the latest versions of Adobe Acrobat or other 3rd party options to manually tag the PDF documents themselves accessible.
