    Accessibility validation with
    Adobe Acrobat or CommonLook PDF Validator?

    CommonLook PDF Validator plugin enhances native
    accessibility validation capabilities and features of
    Adobe Acrobat Professional and Standard.

    Acrobat doesn’t test for conformance against any established
    accessibility standards while CommonLook PDF Validator tests against
    ISO PDF/UA, W3C/WCAG 2.0 AA, U.S. Section 508 och U.S. HHS.

    Why does CommonLook PDF Validator or PAC3 tell me I’m failing
    when the PDF passes in Adobe Acrobat?"


    Fast PDF Verification – Assured!

NetCentric Technologies - CommonLook PDF Validator - Test & Report - Picture

    CommonLook PDF Validator provides users with a certification report
    for each tested document.
    Communications and compliance specialists can rest assured
    that their PDFs are compliant with accessibility standards.

    With other verification products, it’s not uncommon that documents
    will pass the tests, but still not be accessible and compliant.


    Making a PDF Compliant and Accessible.
    Once a PDF has been tested using the CommonLook PDF Validator,
    it may be necessary to fix some issues to bring it into compliance.

    We highly recommend using CommonLook PDF to fix PDFs
    that are not compliant with accessibility standards.
