Dear WG:

Regarding this page (which I could not find in the comment form system - could that be addressed?):

http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20-TECHS/pdf_notes.html

I'd like to suggest the following factual changes. As you probably expect, I'll have some other suggestions for this page based on PDF/UA but I'll restrict myself to purely factual changes in this comment.

- Update para 2, PDF/UA is now published as ISO 1428901:2012.

- Under "PDF Authoring Tools that Provide Accessibility Support", please update the listing for "PAW" (which has been retired) to:

"CommonLook Office for Microsoft Office from Netcentric Technologies is an add-in to Microsoft® Word and PowerPoint that makes it possible to create tagged PDF documents. CommonLook Office provides tools to allow content authors to run accessibility tests in the Microsoft Word and PowerPoint environments and to remediate accessibility issues prior to conversion to PDF."

- Under "Accessibility Checking and Repair", that software's name has changed. Please update the listing for "CommonLook" to:

"Commonlook PDF. Commonlook PDF is a plug-in for Adobe Acrobat Pro from Netcentric Technologies. CommonLook PDF helps identify, report and correct the most common accessibility problems, including the proper tagging of images, tables, forms and other non-textual objects."

- Related References section. 

-- The listing for PDF/UA should be updated to point to the ISO webstore page:

Thanks!

Duff.
