Join Chad Chelius for an in-depth discussion in this video Tagging tables in Acrobat, part of Creating Accessible PDFs (2014).
…When remediating a PDF document that contains tables, or at least content…that should be read as tables, it's important they are tagged as such.…Remember because Acrobat has no recollection…that elements should be a table,…you need to tell Acrobat that it is, in fact, a table.…Now I'm beginning this video with the…tables.pdf file already open on my computer.…And I just want to show you that if I open up my…tags panel, we currently don't have any tags at all in here.…Now I'm going to give Acrobat a shot, I'm going to go to the…option button up here, and I'm going to choose add tags to document.…
If we go to the tags panel here, just going to open these…up, we can see that as we go down the list here that…when we get over, you can see that the table is kind of…jumping around, and we have some really odd stuff that's currently being selected.…So you know first and foremost, that table has not been tagged as a table.…And if we go over to this one, probably going to run into the same problem here.…You can see that portions of the table are tagged at different points.…
