PDF Techniques Accessibility Summit
Dec 10 : 8:00 AM - Dec 11 : 5:00 PM
Hosted by the PDF Association, this two-day, in-person event brings PDF accessibility experts together to assemble, review and endorse diverse examples of tagged PDF to establish a common understanding of what constitutes “well-tagged for accessibility”.
The objective is to establish a common understanding of “semantically appropriate tags in a logical reading order”, to quote PDF/UA-1, 7.1, paragraph 2.
Results will be compiled and edited by the PDF Association’s PDF/UA Technical Working Group for submission to the W3C’s Web Accessibility Initiative to form the basis of a revised and updated set of PDF Techniques for WCAG 2.1.
WCAG editor Andrew Kirkpatrick will join to discuss the WCAG techniques review process during lunch on Monday, December 10.
