Lisa,
I gave that access-for-all PDF checker a spin with a PDF I had worked on
quite intensely. My document failed because of untagged content. But the
untagged content was all either white space or lines around buttons and
table cells and the like. In Acrobat it was mostly artifacts or
annotations, and I have always assumed that this was not a problem. Do you
think I can dismiss these failures as false positives?
