Participating in the PDF Techniques Accessibility Summit

The PDF Techniques Accessibility Summit’s objective is to establish a broad-based understanding of how PDF files should be tagged for accessibilty. It’s an opportunity to focus on establishing a common set of examples of accessible PDF content, and identify best-practice when tagging difficult cases.

Modernizing PDF Techniques for Accessibility

The PDF Techniques Accessibility Summit will identify best-practices in tagging various cases in PDF documents. Questions to be addressed will likely include: the legal ways to tag a nested list, the correct way to caption multiple images, the appropriate way to organize content within headings.

Refried PDF

My hospital emailed me a medical records release form as a PDF. They told me to print it, fill it, sign it, scan it and return it to the medical records department, in that order. In 2018? To get the form via email (i.e., electronically), yet be asked to print it? Did the last 20 years just… not mean anything! So I thought I’d be clever. I’d fill it first, THEN print it. Or better yet, never print it, but sign it anyhow, and return it along with a note making the case for improving their workflow. The story continues…

Interview with Kevin Willems, Software Engineer at iText Software, about PDF Days Europe 2018

Kevin WillemsPDF Association: At the PDF Days Europe, you will be hosting a presentation titled “Redaction in electronic documents” – what’s that about?

Kevin Willems: Redacting is the removal of privileged or protected customer data before publishing or distributing. Something that has gained a lot of importance over the last years and will do so even more once the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) takes effect. While this is a trivial task for certain document formats, there are a few problems when redacting PDF documents. Redaction isn’t simply removing the ability to see sensitive data, it is removing all traces of that content while retain the document properties as best as possible. This talk will delve into what redaction is for PDFs and why it is important. We will showcase different methods of redaction, emphasizing how you can redact your content and how it applies in your business

PDF Association: Who is your presentation aimed at?

Kevin Willems: This presentation is aimed at both developing (how to redact) and managing functions (why and when to redact).

PDF Association: What will the people who attend your presentation be able to take away from it?

Kevin Willems: Be up to date with the do’s and don’ts of redaction in the GDPR era.
