Just about to start a 30 page doc for government that needs WCAG 2.0. From what I understand heading and paragraphs must be named styled and tagged.
I have been given the below info - just wondering if it is difficult or there are any tips or tricks?
Also is their any size limits to the body copy?
1. Check your colour contrast for text over colours.
2. Check your paragraph styles, and make sure they all have tags for PDF tagging in “Export Tagging"
- Give all Headings either a H tag or heading levels tags (H1, H2 etc.)
- Give all other text a P tag
- Any text styles that DO NOT need to be read out an Artifact tag (captions usually go under this category due to alt tagging images)
3. Set up “Articles” for sections so you can determine the reading order better.
- Open the Articles palette under Window
- Click and drag content in to the panel to create articles, order them as you wish within their articles.
- Linked text boxes count as one element in the article.
4. Make sure all tables have a header row. Even if it means the header row is empty and invisible, they all need one.
5. Alt tag all linked images.
- Right click > Object Export options…
- Under Alt text tab, select “Customer” as the source and either type a descriptor or copy/paste captions.
- For images that are decorative and DO NOT need to be read out loud, go to the “Tagged PDF” tab of the export options dialog box, and select “Artifact” under “Apply Tag:” option.
6. Give your document a Title and Author
- Go to File > File Info...
- Title: <As it appears on the cover>
- Author: Department name
7. Export the file
- Make sure it’s an interactive PDF
- Make Sure “Create Tagged PDF” and “Use Structure for Tab Order” are selected
- Under “Advaced” tab, make sure it’s Display Title: Document Title and Language: English: UK
