What does universal accessibility actually mean when it comes to PDFs? It is the idea that everyone should be equally able to independently access and use the information contained within a PDF document.
Many organizations and government regulators see web content accessibility through the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) lens. There are only a few correct ways to structure and “read” a file from an accessibility standpoint, and that’s what you need to know to make PDF comply with WCAG 2.0. This mapping helps PDF and accessibility developers alike come to terms with what it means to comply with WCAG 2.0 using the PDF format.
