PDF Accessibility
  • CB: did someone look the links I sent on PDF?
  • CB: It there is a rule for bookmarks should point to headings
  • CB: Should book marks be visible when the document opens
  • JG: The author gets to choose
  • CD: If you are using MS Word to create bookmarks from headings, it creates a PDF with the bookmarks pane available, but if you are using Acrobat you need to do something different
  • JG: Is reflow important?
  • MS: It is but there are a number of technical issues, so it might be difficult to do, except for forms (interactive annotations) Adobe will warn you
  • MS: Static images in Word 2007 breaks reflow when images are used
  • MS: From a technical standpoint reflow, the reflow (physical view, content layer and tag layer) is base on content layer and so it must be in order
  • MS: Adobe PDF accessibility means getting synched up to the physical, content and tag layers
  • CB: A reflow rule should be the document stays sync
  • MS: The content layer must represent …
  • MS: The rule under text content will address reflow and make reflow work

  • MS: We may not want to have ever single headings
  • CD: On one of those refresh detroit it has two kinds of best practices where you add the book marks and then in the initial view shows the book marks panel
  • CD: Some options can only be done with Acrobat Pro
  • JG: We want to use the best practices to tell developers what should they have in their tools
