PDF Accessibility Tools

The EqualWeb PDF Auto Tag Remediation tool is AI-powered software that makes PDF remediation fast and easy. Within seconds after uploading your PDF, the remediation tool makes your document accessible according to WCAG 2.2 Level AA and Section 508 standards.

The PDF accessibility tool significantly improves non-accessible PDF files, including more accurate results for heading levels, reading order, complex lists, links, references, and tables, ensuring that each document can be easily navigated with screen readers and other reading devices for the sake of people with disabilities, including the addition of alternative text for images.

PDF Auto Tag Remediation benefits

Accessible PDFs are required by law

The law requires all website content to be accessible to people with disabilities. This includes PDF documents. In the United States, this obligation is drawn from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 508 legislation, which uses the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) as its benchmark. Consult an expert to inquire into legal demands in your region.

What is PDF tagging?

The PDF Auto AI Remediation is an AI-powered tool that significantly improves non-remediated PDF files, including more accurate results for heading levels, reading order, complex lists, links, references, and tables.

Users who use assistive technology, like screen readers or other text-to-speech tools, require a PDF to be structured in order to read it properly and engage with its content. This is achieved by automatically tagging your PDF files with EqualWeb’s AI software. Adding tags enables the identification of a PDF’s elements such as Headings, Tables, Lists, and Paragraphs.

PDF structure tags define the reading order as well as headings, paragraphs, sections, tables, and other page elements. The tags structure also allows documents to be resized and reflowed for viewing at larger sizes and on mobile devices.

Additionally, each paragraph is labeled with language identification to aid content understanding and improve word breaks. The outcome is a tagged PDF. We put immense effort and work into adhering to accessibility standards set by international regulations like Section 508 and the WCAG 2.2 guidelines.

Generate report

The PDF Auto AI Remediation tool issues an auditory report that details the remediation process and added and removed tags, as well as persisting issues that require additional review. This report will serve as a guide for you on how to fix accessibility errors and a statement of your remediation effort.

PDF tagging

The auto-tagging system recognizes a title (if available) and incorporates it as an extra heading level 1 (H1). If you aim for greater alignment with WCAG 2.2 HTML accessibility standards when a title is detected, it is designated as an H1, and all other headings within the document can be adjusted down by one level (e.g., H1 becomes H2). This setting is initially set to "false" (no adjustment).

How does it work?

Step 1

Upload your PDFs.

Step 2

The Auto Tag tool runs the remediation process. Wait for the documents to be ready in a matter of minutes.

Step 3

Download your accessible PDFs as well as a generated report detailing the doc’s tags and any other issues.
