Windows validating tool
If there is an arrow next to “Bookmarks” in that panel, then the document has bookmarks.Click the arrow, like in the Tags tree, to view the Bookmarks and verify their accuracy.Click the third button from the left in the Windows tab to open the Metadata panel at the lower right side of the user interface.Here, it is possible to verify: Throughout the course of verifying a document it is possible to open, close, and move around the various panels that are mentioned in this guide.Click the arrows next to those folders (if applicable) to reveal their contents.An important component in document accessibility, especially for documents containing links and/or forms, is that the tabbing order follows the document structure (as determined in the Tags tree).Screen readers can use headings to navigate through a document similarly to how people typically use bookmarks.For this reason, it is ideal to have the bookmarks and the heading levels match.
Here are just some of the things PDF Validator can do: With other tools, documents can pass the test, yet still not be accessible or compliant.
Conducting a Full check will start the validation process over again from the beginning.
The benefit of an Incremental check is, when changes have been made to the verification results – for example when changing a checkpoint status from “User Verification” to “Passed” (as discussed below) – these changes are maintained and the checkpoints are not re-tested (requiring re-verification).
A “Structural” check will test the following items in a document: Running an “Accessibility” check is similar to running a “Structural” check for a document – the difference being that this verification will test the document against one (or more) specific set(s) of accessibility criteria.
To run an “Accessibility” check, follow these steps: Running an Incremental check will only test the items that have changed since the last validation was run (in the current session).Here, organized by page, will be all of the elements in the document that are not tagged.
