### Examples of PDF/UA documents built using LaTeX

The following documents conform to both PDF/UA-1 and either PDF/A-2a or PDF/A-3a.

- Conference poster: 61st Annual Meeting of the Australian Mathematical Society
(LaTeX source)

- Mathematics Tutorial exercises
- untagged inline mathematics

This PDF is fully conforming to PDF/UA, but doesn't treat mathematical content in a properly accessible way. That is, it satisfies the 'letter' of the law, but not its intent. - with solutions

This is another, but with more mathematics. - fully tagged inline mathematics

This illustrates how mathematical content should be tagged. - questions-actualtext

This uses both /ActualText and /Alt to provide the LaTeX source of mathematical expressions. - with solutions-actualtext

This uses both /ActualText and /Alt to provide the LaTeX source of mathematical expressions. - The LaTeX source for all these examples, annotated with comments on the coding to produce non-standard effects.

- untagged inline mathematics
- ACM journal styles

- example document, using ACM-small option: PDF (~1.2Mb) without compression
- example document, using SIGCHI-a option: PDF (~3.7Mb) without compression
- example document, using SIG-Conf option: PDF (~3.7Mb) without compression

- Annals of Mathematics, example document

- final typeset version PDF (~2.0Mb), editorial version PDF (~2.0Mb) with line-numbers & margin notes.

### TUG 2019 resources

Follow this link for movies, PDFs and other links relevent to some talks on Accessibility and LaTeX, given at TUG 2019 in Palo Alto, August 2019.

### 5-year plan proposal

The document linked here outlines a proposal for updating publications in the mathematical sciences to become conformant to the PDF/A and PDF/UA standards. This will require funding and cooperation from both the major academic publishers, as well as smaller publishers such as learned societies and some university publishers.

### TUG 2020 resources

Here are links to videos of the 3 talks that I gave at TUG2020 in early August., along with supplementary materials used or referred-to in those talks.

- “CMaps, virtual fonts, ActualText for reliable text-extraction and accessibility” (YouTube)

8t-testfonts, virtualtest-ordinary, virtualtest, slides - “PDF Tagging for accessibility: author considerations” (YouTube)

Tagging with LaTeX — Part 1: author considerations, Online Advice (fully tagged) - with Thomas Price: “Authoring Accessible documents, including with TikZ diagrams” (YouTube)

Tikz examples (fully tagged): SWOT diagram, raising/lowering a winch - Lecture slides for all 3 talks.
