    Add tags to a bunch of PDF files

    Haoyu

      I used SAS to created a bunch of PDF files. How can I add tags to these files automatically, so all the files meet Section 508 Compliance?  Can I use Javascript? Or is there a function in Acrobat Pro can do this? Any suggestions?

          It’s hugely preferable to make tagged PDF at the outset rather than add tags to existing PDF files.

           

          Does the authoring implementation not support Tagged PDF? If not, why not?

           

          Start with the source application if at all possible… any other approach means a lot (a lot) of time and money.

           

          That said, you can add tags automatically with Adobe Acrobat Professional. Then you will need to review and correct the tags.
