Conversion to pdf/a1 removes content tags


We have a problem with converting word to pdf/a1 in regards to accessibility. The resulting pdf-file has no tags for the contents of the file (such as paragraph-tags for the text). We have noted that when we do word to pdf conversion with Microsoft, or word to pdf/ua with Aspose, the content tags stay intact. Thus converting to pdf/a1 with Aspose seems to remove content tags. Please look into this.

Thank You!


Could you please ZIP and attach your input Word document, problematic and expected output PDF files here for testing? We will investigate the issue and provide you more information on it.

Some further information: We are converting to pdfa-1a using Aspose.Words version 20.7 in .NET. To verify the result we are using PAC 3, screenshot of the program is also in the file. ToAspose.zip (472.4 KB)
