I need to learn how to produce accessible PDFs from Framemaker. I have read through both the Framemaker and Acrobat Help articles aobout the mechanics of how it's done, but I'm looking for more details and am not succeeding in finding good information.

 

I would appreciate if someone recommend an online (or in-person) course or tutorial (bonus if it's tailored to providing accesible documents to US govt. agencies ;-)) that  would help me get answers to the following kinds of questions and issues:

  • Which joboptions to use for best results?
  • Better to use Save-As or Publish or Print to PDF?
    "Tagged PDF" failed in the accessibility checker even though in the file properties it says "Tagged PDF: Yes"
  • "Annotation tags" in the accessibility report failed for all of the cross references to figures - why? and how should I fix it?
  • All numbered headings get tagged in the PDF as lists - how to map tags?
  • Odd behavior when moving tables in the reading order pane in Acrobat (I just asked about this one in the Acrobat forum)

Anyone who knows how to do this is apt to need to know:

  • What version of FM?
  • Structured or Unstructured FM?
  • Do you need PDF/A-1a, PDF/UA, PDF/A-2a or PDF/A-2u?
  • Do your documents use any codepage/overlay fonts?

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your reply 🙂 My central question was about finding tutorials or courses to learn how to make Framemaker documents accessibile, with my questions provided as examples, but here are my replies to your questions:

  • What version of FM?  2020 (but updgrading soon to 2022)
  • Structured or Unstructured FM? Unstructured
  • Do you need PDF/A-1a, PDF/UA, PDF/A-2a or PDF/A-2u? I have no idea. Whatever the US govt. requires (or, potentially, individual agencies therein)
  • Do your documents use any codepage/overlay fonts? I don't think so.

re: My central question was about finding tutorials or courses to learn how to make Framemaker documents accessibile

This might be the latest Adobe statement: ⎆Accessibility in Adobe FrameMaker

This forum includes FM book authors, FM trainers, FM scripters & FM consultants. I suspect your question has arisen before, and may attract answers.

I've already told you more than I know, as I never had to author any Section 508 material. I did want to render book to PDF/A-2a couple of years ago, and noticed that Adobe provided no JobOption for it with FM.
