Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] tagged and accessible PDF document with DocBook

I think you've summed it up Holger.

http://www.pdf-accessibility.com/ is of little help.

I can only suggest you override the xsl-fo templates to add structural
from the source.

(which assumes you need printable content?)

I tried both FOP-parameters (accessibility/PDF-UA) and received a tagged PDF file. But I found out that there is no structural information inside the pdf; 'everything' is tagged as p(aragraph). The xsl:fo also lacks this kind of information. The Apache FOP Accessibility help recommends using the role attribute for tagging information inside the document:
> <fo:block role="H1" font-weight="bold">I. A Level 1 Heading</fo:block>
