I have a PDF document that was created in MSWord. My level 4 headings are underlined. When I export the file to Adobe PDF, I noticed that for that heading's tag, the word "Path" appears after the text in the heading. This is how it appears:
...(container icon) Heading Text: Path
In the example the heading is "Technical Support"; therefore the code looks like this:
(container icon) Technical Support: Path
My understanding is that "Path" is there because adobe interpreted this to mean this is a link of some kind. Do I need to remove the word "Path"; if yes, how do I do that? Do I delete this tag and recreate it? OR does it matter? Can I leave the word "Path"?
Path is a graphical element, in this case the underline. From what I understand it will cause no issues with screen readers or other assistive technologies. It looks untidy in the tag structure though, so if you want to get rid of it select each underline - but not the text - using the Touch Up Reading Order tool and tag it as Background (artifact).
