Creating Accessible PDFs using Print Composer

Hi Steve--


Last time I asked Arbortext about this, it wasn't possible.
But that was a while ago, so things may have changed....

style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">Thanks to everyone’s help I am now
happily creating PDFs using print composer. My last issue was due to Adobe
PDF not being set as my default printer, and now that that’s done, I’m in
business.



style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">


style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">But I’ve run into a little snag –
the PDFs are not tagged for accessibility. I know there is, in Epic, an
accessibility option, but that’s only for the editor, not for the
PDF.



style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">


style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">Does anyone know how to make
accessible PDFs using print composer?

Hi Steve,




What do you mean by accessible. I often use Epic to create PDF files whitch are automatically created in one of those directories :



%USERPROFILE%\Mes documents


Or %USERPROFILE%\Bureau




depending of the acrobat version, I think.


So, I use a batch file whitch first delete the PDF files in these directories and then wait for the existence and then the disponibility of the PDF file before to move it in the directory of the sgml file.



(I can send you the batch if that is your problem)




Otherwise, if you want to modify the PDF file created, you must have Adobe Acrobat 7.0, Standard.

By accessibility I mean improving access to
the information for people with disabilities. One of the ways PDF does that is
by tagging the output to assist screen readers as well as alternative
(non-mouse) access to links. Accessibility is a big issue for any company that
is working with, or plans to work with, the government in the US or the EU.







XML transforms to PDF should be an easy
way to create tagged PDFs since the meta-data is already there. Other XML
transformation engines (like RenderX's XEP) support this, and I certainly
hope print composer does as well.







I've filed a ticket with Arbortext,
and I let you know what they say.
