PDF: Accessibility Reports

After running the Accessibility Checker you will be given a report. Two items will always show up on the report as manual checks:

  • Logical Reading Order
  • Color Contrast

Use the chevrons to the left of an item to expand it for additional information. Right-click for a submenu that will give you the following options:

  • Fix: Acrobat either fixes the item automatically or displays a dialog box prompting you to fix the item manually.
  • Skip Rule: Deselects this option in the Accessibility Checker Options dialog box for future checks of this document, and changes the item status to Skipped.
  • Explain: Opens the online Help where you can get more details about the accessibility issue.
  • Check Again: Runs the checker again on all items. Choose this option after modifying one or more items.
  • Show Report: Displays a report with links to tips on how to repair failed checks.
  • Options: Opens the Accessibility Checker Options dialog box, so you can select which checks are performed.
