The Syncfusion UWP PDF library allows you to create accessible PDF and convert from Word and HTML to tagged PDF. The accessible or tagged PDF is a PDF that includes a set of structure instruction that defines, reading order, and meaning of significant elements such as figures, images, lists, tables, and so on. The accessible PDF makes content accessible to users who rely on assistive technology. The Syncfusion Essential PDF library helps create accessible or PDF/UA. PDF documents created using the Essential PDF library are compliant with section 508. In addition, it provides many customizing options like marking content as artifact, alternate text, tag order, etc.
The Essential PDF supports adding tags to PDF elements such as text, image, shapes, form fields, annotations, hyperlinks, tables, lists, etc.
The Syncfusion PDF UWP library is capable of automatically tagging each PDF element based on the creation order to create accessible PDF.
In PDFs, artifacts can be graphic objects, or other markings for decoration that are not relevant for understanding the content of the document such as headers, footers, page numbers, watermarks, cut marks, color bars, background images, lines separating content, or decorative images. As specified in PDF/UA, all the page content in PDF is either contained in the logical structure or marked as an artifact, and Syncfusion Essential PDF library provides support for both.
This is the order in which assistive technologies like screen readers or refreshable Braille displays to present the content in a PDF. Basically, the element that draws first takes precedence over the tag reading order. You can re-order the tagged elements in a document using the order property in the Syncfusion PDF library.
