Creating and editing accessible PDF

Hello,

we're building a html website which has to be accessible for disabled persons.

On the website one has the oportunity to fill in some forms. After submitting we're

creating a pdf-file with aspose.pdf.kit and send it as a copy to the client.

Since we have a lot of different forms, we allways use a template pdf and

fill in the clients data. Untill now these pdfs are quite unstructured and are not

in line with accessible pdf standard. Certainly I'd like to create accessible pdfs,

but I couldn't found a possibility to do that with pdf.kit.

My question now, is there a possibility to create and editing accesible pdfs?

And if yes, could you tell me where I can find the documentation.

Thank you for your effort and kind regards

Hi Fabian,

I’m very sorry to inform you that currently Aspose.Pdf.Kit allows you to edit only the normal PDF files; we haven’t tested and tweaked it for working with accessible PDF files. However, I have logged a new feature request as PDFKITNET-26512 in our issue tracking system. Our team will investigate this requirement and you’ll be notified via this forum thread once it is supported.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello Shahzad,

I'm still very interested in accessible Pdfs because we intend to certify
our customers website.

The certificate authority, we work with, uses the following tool in order to investigate and validate the pdfs.

So, of course, it is important for us, that the generated pdf processes the validation process with success.

Attached you will find a test run I've made with another library.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon.


Thank you for your effort and kind regards
