As 508 compliance becomes more and more crucial for higher ed and ecommerce sites, many developers are encountering Priority 1 issues regarding PDFs. Depending on who owns the document it might seem prudent to send the PDFs to a separate department (those content people who write words good) as the task of tagging each img and table and metadata can seem daunting to those used to working with code. Thankfully this task need not induce panic in us developers, as there is a rather fast method for cleaning up PDFs that I’m happy to share with you all (even you content folks with all them fancy vocabulistics).
A couple prerequisites before we begin: Microsoft Word, and Acrobat Pro DC, a trial of which can be obtained here: Click here to start your free trial of Acrobat Pro DC.
There you have it, accessible PDFs without the perceived headache associated with tagging PDFs manually. Enjoy all your new found free time!
