Adobe addresses Acrobat PDF tagging issues

The August release of Acrobat Pro DC has seen two accessibility tagging improvements, making it easier for users to create accessible PDF files.

 In a recent Adobe blog post, Rob Hagerty, highlighted that the tag tree now remains visible when a document is saved and reopened, allowing users to quickly return to a specific document section.

The biggest announcement, however, relates to the interaction of tags when sections of a document are moved. With the August update, the tag tree will now automatically adjust during the moving process. For example, moving page 10 to page 3 of a document will result in the tag tree automatically updating to reflect the change. This will make it significantly easier for screen reader users to navigate PDF documents edited in Acrobat Pro DC.

Additional information on the accessibility of Adobe products can be found in the Accessibility section of the Adobe website.
