PDF/UA: The inclusive document format

Now that we are rapidly moving towards a world where digital documents are not just an alternative, but the standard, we need to make sure everybody is aboard for this digital revolution and has full access to all information in digital documents. And it is impossible to think about digital documents without including PDF, the most common file type for digital documents.

PDF/UA - the PDF standard for Universal Accessibility - offers a clear framework for accessible PDF documents and aims to assure that all information inside a PDF is equally accessible to everyone. The focus is particularly on including those with disabilities that make use of assistive technology (AT) such as screen readers, magnifiers and adaptive navigation. Considering there are 1 billion people worldwide with disabilities, that is certainly enough to justify the existence of an accessibility standard for PDF, but we’ll also see certain aspects of PDF/UA can benefit other implementations reliant on machine interpretation.

In this ebook we will first get to know our audience and the tech they use. Then we will zoom in on the requirements that make up PDF/UA and how to validate their conformance. We’ll also learn about the regulations across the world and how PDF/UA can benefit all users, with or without disabilities. We’ll even take it one step further and provide you a tutorial on creating PDF/UA conformant documents with the iText 7 Suite – the leading open-source PDF library/SDK.
