  I don't know if this is the good place for such a question. But has
anyone had the chance to expirement a java library that would convert
accessible (x)html page to an accessible pdf document?



We have used this exact approach to generate PDF files from XHTML content.
The same content is available in HTML on our AMP Platform but some
customers want it in PDF format for other purposes such as printing with
headers/footers and page numbers.  We have found in general that
accessibility is supported although there are some challenges with getting
headers and footer content to appear in the correct reading order as footer
content appears first the XHTML structure.

Hello,

I don't know if this is the good place for such a question. But has anyone
had the chance to expirement a java library that would convert accessible
(x)html page to an accessible pdf document?

For instance, I've found this article :
http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-04-2006/jw-0410-html.html

Unfortunately the input file taken as example is too poor in tags to have a
good feeling of the accessibility of the output.

Thanks in advance for your valuable advice.

Regards

Tanguy
