What is WCAG?
With the common goal of providing an international, single, shared standard for web content accessibility, WCAG was developed by the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).
These guidelines help make web content more accessible to people with disabilities. This includes text, images, and sounds, as well as technical code that defines structure, presentation, etc.
Do PDFs have to be compliant?
PDFs are often overlooked with respect to accessibility. Nevertheless, they must still be compliant with WCAG.
PDF files tend to be produced by someone other than the website developers or administrators. They also represent a huge volume of the documents that site visitors use every day.
