Elements of a PDF/UA Compliant Document
•For our purposes in advocacy:
•The document must have Tags.
•The Tags must be correct for the type of content.
•Tags must be in a logical reading order (which might not be the order in which
content appears on the page, i.e., brochures).
•Headings as navigational structures must be sequential and you can’t skip a
•Alt Text for images and links.
•Decorative images are Artifacts.
•There is a core language for the document and Multilanguage documents
have language attributes on Tags for the changes in language..
•While the presence of ookmarks is a “should have” in PDF/UA, when
present, Bookmarks are to mirror headings.
