A dive into PDF optimization
What we learned at the PDF Day France
- There are numerous ISO standards for PDF
Everyone knows about PDF and PDF/A. however, there are some other standards that cover specific domains: printing and prepress with PDF/X and PDF/VT, engineering with PDF/E, and there is even an ISO for making PDFs accessible to people with disabilities (PDF/UA).
- Accessible PDF is on the rise, administrations, companies, and contractors need to get ready.
You make a PDF accessible by tagging it correctly so it can be read by assistive technologies.
