The PDF/UA Reference Suite is Here!

On June 16 the PDF Association’s PDF/UA Competence Center, now known as the PDF/UA Technical Working Group published the PDF/UA Reference Suite:

“To serve as a reference for software developers and practitioners interested in best-practices for creating tagged and accessible PDF files, the PDF Association’s PDF/UA Competence Center has posted a set of ten PDF documents conforming to PDF/UA-1.”

The ten documents within the PDF/UA Reference Suite demonstrate correct tagging in a number of sophisticated cases, including:

  • Content spanning multiple pages
  • Complex table structures
  • Multiple languages within a single document
  • Interactive forms and JavaScript
  • Links targeting structure elements

The PDF/UA Reference Suite is an excellent resource for everyone who is interested in achieving document compliance with ISO 14289 (PDF/UA), the way to maximize PDF accessibility for today’s users and those of the future.
