Re: PDFs that read one word per line

It is recommended that people develop a quality assurance process that
combines human based checking with the accessibility full check. The
Accessibility Full check is a mechanical tool like the HTML validators and
checks for the things that can be checked mechanically. Just as with HTML
you also need someone to take a look at the Tags and make sure they are
correct and that all content that is essential to the understanding of the
content has been tagged and tagged correctly.

The PDF/UA [Universal Access] is developing standards for accessible PDF.

Many organizations develop standards and guidelines for PDF documents based
on legislation.

Cheers, Karen
