Create tagged PDF files

axaio MadeToTag is an Adobe InDesign CS5.5 and CS6 plug-in to properly prepare InDesign documents for export as accessible, tagged PDF file – much more easier, faster and more reliable.

The MadeToTag UI is based on a ‘five step guide’ (link to tutorial), which will lead you safely and intuitively through the tasks, to generate the tagged PDF file, without missing any important step.

Tagged PDFs are essential for accessibility, so that screen reader devices for visually impaired people or reading software for users with learning disabilities can provide rich access to a PDF’s content. Tagged PDFs also enable screen reader software programs to offer easy navigation and accessible presentation of content in PDF files.

Fields of Application

Properly tagged PDF files have become very important for public administrations and enterprises. Legal requirements for physically impaired people and for accessibility in the information technology (such as described in the German BGG, BITV and EU mandate 376) impose that the public sector offers all content – webpages as well as PDF documents – in an accessible form. But also media service providers, representatives of associations and institutions as well as students and lecturers at colleges and unversities increasingly consider it their duty to have their written materials available as accessible documents. – Nothing simpler then that – with MadeToTag.

On top of that, PDF tags are an effective method to improve your company’s Search Engine Optimization. The tags in the PDF file follow concepts similar to those found in HTML. Properly used tags place websites higher in the search engine rankings.
