Join Chad Chelius for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding tags to a document in Acrobat, part of Creating Accessible PDFs (2014).
…So the first step in remediating a document…from scratch, is adding tags to the document.…Normally we rely on the source application to do this for us, but because…we're starting from a PDF created without…accessibility in mind, we need to add them.…So, I'm beginning this video with the tags.pdf file already open on my computer.…And we're just going to take a look here.…If we open up the tags panel.…You can see that, as expected, we have no tags available.…And so we need to basically add them.…
Now, there's a couple of options here.…You can come up here to the options button.…And one option is, add tags to documents.…So let's go ahead and try that.…We're going to choose that option.…And you can see that Acrobat shows us a recognition report, and is already…giving us some tips if you will on issues that we need to address.…Now let's actually go into the tags panel for a second.…And I'm going to option click on this triangle, or you can control click.…And I'm going to click on that and we can see okay it kind of tagged the document.…
