Tagged PDF: Separation of visual and tagged content

Is it possible with Aspose.PDF to separate the visual content from the tagged content?

Because Layout with Document.TaggedContent, seems to be very limited (e.g. no page breaks possible): is it possible to render a visual PDF content and additionally set the (hidden) tagged content for screen readers? Didn’t find anythin in the documentation.

TaggedContent in Aspose.PDF seems to be relatively new, right?


Yes, the tagged PDF creation is newly introduced functionality and it is still under process to get mature. However, could you kindly share a sample PDF document of type which you want to create with Aspose.PDF. We will investigate the possibility in our environment and share our feedback with you accordingly.

Thanks for your reply.
I want to create an accessible PDF like the one attached. There is repeating content on separate pages. With normal PDF this would not be a problem, but when trying to create a PDF/UA with ITaggedContent, I don’t know how to create page breaks.

As per our understanding, you need to add tagged content on page level to create multipage tagged PDFs.
