axaio MadeToTag update with improved table feature!

axaio MadeToTag is a plug-in for preparing and exporting Adobe InDesign documents for export as tagged, accessible PDF – easier, faster and more reliable. In the current MadeToTag version 1.9.095, improvements have been made espacially to MadeToTag’s table feature and various smaller optimizations have been included as well.

MadeToTag makes life easier for people who need to generate tagged, accessible PDFs regularly from within Adobe InDesign. It helps to keep the main thread in the often complicated processing of accessibility requirements.

MadeToTags intuitive UI guides you through 7 steps, which are necessary to create an accessible PDF file and thus gives you the security of not having forgotten an important step.

Various checking functions and correction actions ensure reliable results. Practical keyboard shortcuts for all important MadeToTag functions help to save time and make processing a routine after a short period of time.

Even for complex tables, you can define assignments for table cells, by columns and rows, to allow a logical accessible content representation. With the help of coloured backgrounds, the cell assignment is visually displayed to get a quick overview.

Many other aspects, such as the processing of alternative texts for images, correct language assignments, colour contrasts, interactive forms, are taken into account in order to guarantee a correctly tagged, accessible PDF.

In addition, the PDF file being exported with MadeToTag meets the requirements of the PDF/UA ISO standard (Universal Accessibility) for compliance with the legal requirements of accessible documents.

Meet all accessibility requirements directly during the creation of your information material in InDesign to avoid subsequent steps on the finished document and thus save time, costs and, last but not least, nerves!

The complete release notes for the current MadeToTag version 1.9.095 can be found here.

You can download an unlimited 30-day trial version from our website at any time.
