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 Vel Genov, Senior Product Manager at Datalogics, about the PDF Days Europe 2018

Vel GenovPDF Association: At the PDF Days Europe, you will be hosting a presentation titled “Common PDF Interoperability Concerns” – what’s that about?

Vel Genov: PDF is a flexible and extensible document description language, full of features and capabilities. Different PDF viewers and processors have different strengths and weaknesses. While PDF is foremost concerned with enabling interoperability, users interact with PDF through its various implementations. This session will cover some common trouble areas for PDF processors that lead to user frustration. Attendees will also learn which trouble areas can be addressed in existing PDF documents, and some techniques for doing so.

PDF Assocation: Who is your presentation aimed at?

Vel Genov: Entry and intermediate level PDF users, and super users that process multiple PDF files in an automated workflow.

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

Vel Genov: We will talk about common PDF features that are often not well supported by PDF processing tools. We will focus on some of the problems, and discuss ways to spot and resolve them.
