Memory management is such a dark art, one never knows how or why. Shame, as it would be yet another way of being able to split one large data merged file into smaller files based on the tagged information. OK what am I doing wrong? Rae: Why do you need to change the name of the tags in the PDF? I like a clean tags panel. This is a bit easier for your QA task as it correlates the semantic purpose of the tag in a visual way within the tags tree in Acrobat. I tested this. And it also worked for me. A really strange case indeed! I often have to edit PDFs created by another so-called designer. The text is broken into pieces and some of it is outlined.
Does this have anything to do with the application it was originally created in. InDesign, Word etc? Is my only choice to open in Illustrator and correct there? Also is there a way to replace missing fonts within the PDF itself. Thanks a bunch! Spaghetts: It is very difficult to edit PDF files like that.
In fact, it is generally difficult to edit PDF files at all! You might want to look at some of the PDF editing apps available, such as Pitstop. Accessible PDFs Any thoughts why exporting a tagged pdf using the interactive pdf option out of ID CS6 converts multi-line paragraphs into individual lines of text when viewed in the tags panel in Acrobat Pro X? I compared that to a pdf exported from MS Word where multi-line paragraphs stay under a single para span tag. Vic: That is strange. Hi David, thanks for the super-quick reply! I also noticed any custom changes to the paragraph such as a few colored words, drop caps or bolding also resulted in more span tags.
Furthermore, Alt tag descriptions for images were hidden when hovering with the mouse in the exported PDF file. That one was solved by removing all effects transparency, multiply etc.

Even with all elements on the same layer that have been added to the reading order in the Articles panel, you notice strange things. Until you arrange using Send to Back in the reverse order of the Articles panel, that is! I am having the same problem. Every time I export my tagged InDesign document, paragraphs are split into individual lines.
The reader only reads one line and you have to move to the next line. I have tried many different settings: interactive, print, hyperlinks on and off…. Please help I have a page document to format for accessibility! That sounds very frustrating! I would definitely recommend looking at this title by Chad Chelius at lynda.
He goes over a lot of issues. You can also find Chad at incopysecrets. Having the same problem as Vic and Jason. My paragraphs are not only being split into many paragraphs and many span tags , but also, hyphens and some individual characters are also being kept on a separate span tag, whereas I would like to keep a whole paragraph inside a single span tag. Have you guys found a solution? Spans, Articles, Sections and so on, have no effect on the screen reader either.
I know this is an old post of yours but I wanted to clarify 1 thing. There is no consistency.
Creating Leaflets with InDesign
This is my experience anyway. To my knowledge this condition alone does not violate any accessibility requirements and reads fine using Jaws screen reader. What screen reader are you using? And are the all the lines within one Tag in the tags panel or are they in separate tags? I have not tested other screen readers.

However, as far as I know you can put as many separate lines inside a Tag as you want as long as they all belong to the paragraph, heading or whatever single element you see them in on the screen. A screen reader should be able to follow and read the content as shown in the Tags panel. Is there a way to export all of the same tag in one go. Not the entire document just one tag. Hope this makes sense! I hope one of you can help. We have instructions to direct a user to a menu in Word, for example. The greater than symbol is actually an arrow from Wingdings 3.

I have tested an Illustrator graphic with all text applied and it works great, and if it were only a few arrows, it would be great. This is a manual process unfortunately. There is no way to achieve via InDesign at this time. I called Adobe to carpet on this just last week tho! Try using a a standard Windows font whenever possible for icons. For some icons you may have a problem creating a truly accessible document in Word. Since upgrading to the cloud, my indesign documents that have placed pages from other documents, no longer recognizes the text in the pages when I run reader accessibility in acrobat DC.
Never had an issue with CS6. Any ideas? Turning on the created tagged PDF feature, without considering the requirements of accessibility, gives quite a bit of false hope to document authors and, I would argue, creates a confusing experience for non-sighted users. When a non-sighted user, the primary audience of document tagging, encounters an untagged document they have expectations about the document and employ strategies to overcome issues they expect to find.
Acrobat ships with a number of features out of the box to help screen reader users consume PDFs. Conversely, if they encounter a document that has been tagged, they would expect that the document is accessible to standards. When a tagged PDF is encountered by a non-sighted user who relies on a screen reader, they are most likely expecting that you designed the document to conform to established technical standards such as WCAG 2.
In this way, I would argue simply pushing that button would cause more confusion than the good it was intended to create.

When combined with axaio MadeToPrint — the intelligent output automation solution — the different layer views can automatically be printed or exported to PDF, instantly creating output for all different language or regional versions without any chance of mistakes. Use layer views to organize your multilingual documents.
By grouping all layers for a specific language into a layer view, switching between layers literally takes only one click, hugely reducing the chance on error and minimizing confusion while editing. In region-specific publications such as sales brochures, catalogues, etc. Creating layer views with axaio MadeForLayers allows organizing these different regional editions. This can be done for existing documents or a template can be created to streamline editing of all future production.
Again, in combination with axaio MadeToPrint you can easily save separate files for each regional edition afterwards.
In a typical packaging workflow many stakeholders must review, comment and approve different versions of a design. Generating and keeping track of all of these versions can prove to be a logistical nightmare.
