Advanced PDF Tagging Workshop
If you have ever worked on a PDF with complex content items (lists, tables and forms) then you may already be aware of the mysterious anomalies that can occur when these items won't tag correctly using either the touch-up reading order and auto tagging tools available within Acrobat DC.
If this is the case, then maybe we can help ease your frustrations! Join us for this all-day PDF tagging workshop where we will work through a sample PDF and teach you how to tag lists, tables and form fields as well as work through any anomalies we may encounter.
taught by: Teenya Franklin and Desiree Sturdevant
