I'm working with accessibility and are right know converting a lot of Word documents into pdf documents. But when I export Word documents with a table of content the tags for the table gets messed up. We've used the preprogrammed tables of contents in Word (which is recommended since they are linked and bookmarked automatically). The biggest issue is that the tiny line of dots that goes between every chapter title and the page number in the table get its own <Link>-tag and will therefore be read by a screen reader. The chapter titles in the table also gets tagged as <Span> - is that correct or should it be <P>?
The tags are of course possible to edit in Acrobat manually, but it's very time consuming. Any ideas what goes wrong? Or maybe there's a manual somewhere on the subject?
