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…

PDF/UA, like PDF itself, is internally complex, but used correctly, actually makes things easier.

PDF Days Europe 2016 in Berlin: The central station for documents and PDF people

Berlin, Germany. This year, the perennially popular PDF Days Europe will be held on June 14 and 15, 2016. Hosted for the first time in Berlin, the event will be located in the city’s Mitte district. The event will kick off on Monday, June 13 2016 with the PDF Days Pre-Conference. The conference’s PDF University and PDF In Practice slots will be held entirely in English. As in previous years, the PDF Days Europe will act as a link between users and developers. The keynote, “Utilizing the PDF standard to drive business value”, will be delivered by Scott Mackey, Member of the PDF Association Board.

Almost every document – whether scanned from paper or created from a digital source – will eventually be converted into a PDF format. Whether used for file exchange, for archiving or as a basis for digital invoicing, PDF is the ISO standard for documents – and it is therefore of interest to all businesses. The first day of the PDF Days Europe will be the Educational Day, where attendees will be able to choose from a number of presentations including “Upcoming standard PDF/Raster”, “Disrupting the world of document creation and distribution”, “Mobile PDF scanning”, “Classification of PDF documents” and “The veraPDF project”. The latter presentation deals with a joint project between the Open Preservation Foundation and the PDF Association, which has been charged with developing an open-source PDF/A validator.

The second day is named Solution Day. Here, across a series of parallel sessions, users and developers will present best-practice solutions under titles such as “PDF and OpenType technology”, “Beyond the written word”, “Digital signatures”, “RGB workflow with PDF/X-4”, “Compare documents”, and “The ConnectedPDF ecosystem”. In parallel with the Pre-Conference on Monday, June 13 2016, Foxit and LuraTech will present an English-language workshop highlighting the Foxit Group’s PDF solutions. Attendees will learn more about mobile solutions, server solutions, and Connected PDF. “In all, attendees will be able to choose from just under 50 German- and English-language presentations, workshops and user reports in order to assemble their own personalized package of PDF knowledge”, said Thomas Zellmann, Managing Director of the PDF Association. “And Berlin is always worth a visit.”
