Join Chad Chelius for an in-depth discussion in this video Checking and fine-tuning the remediated PDF, part of Creating Accessible PDFs (2014).
…When you're finished remediating a PDF file, you always…want to run it through the accessibility checker to determine…if there are any additional elements that need to…be fixed in order to make the PDF file accessible.…So let's run the accessibility checker and see what we have.…I'm beginning this video with the…Checking.pdf file already open on my computer.…And I'm just going to go over to the Tools panel over here,…and I'm going to click the Full Check button under the Accessibility category.…So I'm going to go ahead and click Start Checking.…
And you can see that we have a couple of issues that have popped up.…So go ahead and go into the Alternate Text area.…And you can see that we have, it looks…like, two figures that do not have alternative text.…So I'm going to right-click on figure one, and I'm going to choose Fix.…And it says, okay, enter the fix here.…Enter the alternative text you want to have in here.…So, I'm just going to type in here, male…student sitting at his desk smiling at the camera.…
I'll say next, and then I'll type in…
